Step :3 Import AgGridModule And Add It To The App Module

import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { FormsModule } from '@angular/forms';

import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import { AgGridModule } from '@ag-grid-community/angular';

  imports: [BrowserModule, FormsModule, AgGridModule.withComponents([])],
  declarations: [AppComponent],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
export class AppModule { }

Step:4 Open the app.component.ts and paste the following code into it.

import { Component } from '@angular/core';
import { AllModules } from "@ag-grid-enterprise/all-modules";
  selector: 'app-root',
  templateUrl: './app.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./app.component.css']
export class AppComponent {
  private gridApi: any;
  private gridColumnApi: any;

  columnDefs = [
    { field: 'make' },
    { field: 'model' },
    { field: 'price' }
  defaultColDef = {
    sortable: true
  rowData = [
    { make: 'Toyota', model: 'Celica', price: 35000 },
    { make: 'Ford', model: 'Mondeo', price: 32000 },
    { make: 'Porsche', model: 'Boxter', price: 72000 }

  modules = AllModules;

  onGridReady(params: any) {
    this.gridApi = params.api;
    this.gridColumnApi = params.columnApi;

Open the app.component.html and paste the following code into it.

<ag-grid-angular [sideBar]="true" style="height: 500px;" class="ag-theme-balham" [rowData]="rowData"
