I have a modal that contains a form, when the modal is destroyed I get the following error in the console:
Form submission canceled because the form is not connected
The modal is added to a
<modal-placeholder> element which is a direct child to
<app-root>, my top level element.
What’s the correct way to removing a form from the DOM and getting rid of this error in Angular 2? I currently use
There might be other reasons this occurs but in my case I had a button that was interpreted by the browser as a submit button and hence the form was submitted when the button was clicked causing the error. Adding type=”button” fixed the issue. Full element:
<button type="button" (click)="submitForm()">
