How to show only one ul at a time in angular using ngFor


I have the above image which has Add Person button, on click of Add person, Person 1 row gets created and so on. On the right end of each row, I have a share icon, on click of an icon, I wanted to open a ul element. The problem is the number of popups that gets displayed depends on the number of rows. If 5 rows are added, then 5 popups are displayed. Ideally, I need only one popup to be displayed, for Person 4 row it should be the popup with 33( basically the popup the is present for that particular row). I tried to add *ngIf = i> 1 condition, but the popup with 00 is only displayed every time which is not correct because the popup position will always be in parallel to Person 1 position.

<div> <div *ngFor="let person of persons; let i = index"> <div> <div class="userIcon"> <div> <img class="person-img" src="assets/images/person.png" alt="My Profile"> </div> <div> <input id="form3" class="form-control" type="text"> <label for="form3" class="">{{person.name}}</label> </div> </div> </div> <div> <div> <input id="form5" class="form-control" #enteramount type="text"> <a class='dropdown-trigger sharebtn' href='#' data-target='dropdown{{i}}' (click)="shareIconClicked($event, i, enteramount)"></a> {{i}} <ul id='dropdown{{i}}' [ngClass]="{'popupShare': showPopup == true}" class='dropdown-content sharebtn-content'> <li> {{i}} Copy Message </li> <li>Whatsapp</li> <li>Email</li> </ul> </div> </div> </div> </div>

Below image represents the single popup after adding ngIf = 'isFirst'. I have clicked the Person 4 share icon. If I click the Person 3 share or Person 5 share icon, the popup is always positioned on the first row.


Just add check for first using *ngFor like this -

<div *ngFor="let person of persons; first as isFirst"> .... <ul id='dropdown{{i}}' *ngIf='first' [ngClass]="{'popupShare': showPopup == true}" class='dropdown-content sharebtn-content'> ...</ul> </div>

For more in details refer official docs -

<ul><li><a href="https://angular.io/api/common/NgForOf" rel="nofollow">https://angular.io/api/common/NgForOf</a></li> </ul>


You should try angular Mat-menu feature like this.

<div *ngFor="let person of persons; first as isFirst"> .... code <button mat-button [matMenuTriggerFor]="menu">Share</button> <mat-menu #menu="matMenu"> <button mat-menu-item (click)="sharteWithFacebook(person)">Facebook</button> <button mat-menu-item (click)="shareWithWhatapp(person)">Whatsapp</button> </mat-menu> </div>
