Angular2 material dialog has issues – Did you add it to @NgModule.entryComponents?

Issue

I am trying to follow the docs on https://material.angular.io/components/component/dialog but I cannot understand why it has the below issue?

I added the below on my component:

@Component({
  selector: 'dialog-result-example-dialog',
  templateUrl: './dialog-result-example-dialog.html',
})
export class DialogResultExampleDialog {
  constructor(public dialogRef: MdDialogRef<DialogResultExampleDialog>) {}
}

In my module I added

import { HomeComponent,DialogResultExampleDialog } from './home/home.component';

@NgModule({
  declarations: [
    AppComponent,
    LoginComponent,
    DashboardComponent,
    HomeComponent,
    DialogResultExampleDialog
  ],

// ...

Yet I get this error….

EXCEPTION: Error in ./HomeComponent class HomeComponent - inline template:53:0 caused by: No component factory found for DialogResultExampleDialog. Did you add it to @NgModule.entryComponents?

Solution

Angular 9.0.0 <

Since 9.0.0 with Ivy, the entryComponents property is no longer necessary. See deprecations guide.

Angular 9.0.0 >

You need to add dynamically created components to entryComponents inside your @NgModule

@NgModule({
  declarations: [
    AppComponent,
    LoginComponent,
    DashboardComponent,
    HomeComponent,
    DialogResultExampleDialog        
  ],
  entryComponents: [DialogResultExampleDialog]

Note: In some cases entryComponents under lazy loaded modules will not work, as a workaround put them in your app.module (root)
