In Angular, you can parse a URL into a route and parameters without actually navigating to that URL by using the UrlSerializer and RouterStateSnapshot from the @angular/router module. This way, you can inspect the parsed route and parameters without triggering any navigation.

Here's an example of how to achieve this:

  1. First, make sure you have the @angular/router module installed. If you haven't already installed it, you can do so using npm:
npm install @angular/router
  1. Now, in your Angular component, import the required modules and inject the Router and UrlSerializer in the constructor:
import { Component } from '@angular/core'; import { Router, UrlSerializer, RouterStateSnapshot } from '@angular/router'; @Component({ selector: 'app-your-component', template: '...' // Your component template }) export class YourComponent { constructor(private router: Router, private urlSerializer: UrlSerializer) { // Example URL to parse (replace it with the URL you want to parse) const url = '/example-route/42/details?filter=recent'; // Parse the URL without navigating to it const tree = this.urlSerializer.parse(url); const routerStateSnapshot = new RouterStateSnapshot(this.router.routerState.snapshot, tree); // Extract the route and params const route = routerStateSnapshot.root; const params = route.firstChild?.params; console.log('Parsed Route:', route.routeConfig?.path); console.log('Parsed Params:', params); } }

In this example, we use the UrlSerializer to parse the example URL without navigation. The RouterStateSnapshot allows us to create a snapshot of the router state using the parsed URL tree. Finally, we extract the route and parameters from the snapshot.

Remember to replace '/example-route/42/details?filter=recent' with the URL you want to parse. When you run this code, it will print the parsed route and parameters to the console without navigating to the URL.
