To encapsulate a MatDialog in Angular into its own module, you can create a custom Angular module that imports and exports the MatDialogModule from @angular/material. This custom module will serve as a wrapper that can be imported in other parts of your application. Here's how you can do it:

  1. Create a Custom Module: Create a new file, let's say custom-dialog.module.ts, for your custom module. In this file, import the necessary Angular and Material modules and declare your custom dialog component if needed.

    typescript
    // custom-dialog.module.ts import { NgModule } from '@angular/core'; import { CommonModule } from '@angular/common'; import { MatDialogModule } from '@angular/material'; // Import other dependencies if needed // import { YourCustomDialogComponent } from './your-custom-dialog.component'; @NgModule({ imports: [ CommonModule, MatDialogModule, // Add other modules here if needed ], exports: [ MatDialogModule, // Add other modules here if needed ], // declarations: [YourCustomDialogComponent], // Uncomment if you have a custom dialog component }) export class CustomDialogModule {}
  2. Import the Custom Module: In the module where you want to use the MatDialog, import the CustomDialogModule instead of MatDialogModule.

    typescript
    // your-feature.module.ts import { NgModule } from '@angular/core'; import { CommonModule } from '@angular/common'; import { CustomDialogModule } from './custom-dialog.module'; // Other imports @NgModule({ imports: [ CommonModule, CustomDialogModule, // Import the CustomDialogModule instead of MatDialogModule // Other modules ], // Other declarations, providers, etc. }) export class YourFeatureModule {}
  3. Use the MatDialog as Usual: You can now use the MatDialog service in your components within YourFeatureModule as you normally would. It will be provided by the CustomDialogModule, which, in turn, imports the necessary MatDialogModule.

This approach allows you to encapsulate the MatDialog and other Material modules into your custom module, making it easier to manage and import across different parts of your application. If you have a custom dialog component, you can also uncomment the declarations array in CustomDialogModule and include your custom dialog component there.
