Company Names: src/pages/home/home.ts

import { Component } from '@angular/core';
 
@Component({
  selector: 'page-home',
  templateUrl: 'home.html'
})
export class HomePage {
items: any = [];
  constructor() {
    this.items = [
      'Microsoft',
      'Apple',
      'Oracle',
      'Google',
      'IBM',
      'Tesla',
      'Technotip'
    ];
  }
}

We have an array of company names which is being assigned to variable items.

CSS Class: src/pages/home/home.scss

page-home {
    .bold{
        font-weight: bolder;
    }
    .normal{
        font-weight: normal;
    }
}

We define two CSS classes which we use to apply for alternate list items – using ngClass directive. Alternatively the list items appear in bold and in normal font weight.

ngClass Directive – using ternary operator: src/pages/home/home.html

< ion-header>
  < ion-navbar>
    < ion-title>
      Company Names
    < /ion-title>
  < /ion-navbar>
< /ion-header>
 
< ion-content padding>
< ion-list no-lines>
  < ion-item *ngFor="let item of items; let i = index;"
             [ngClass]="(i % 2 == 0) ? 'bold' : 'normal'">
    {{i+1}}. {{item}}
  < /ion-item>
< /ion-list>
< /ion-content>

Here we use ternary operator and whenever i % 2 is zero we apply bold class to that item, if not we apply normal class to that list item.

ngClass Directive: src/pages/home/home.html

< ion-header>
  < ion-navbar>
    < ion-title>
      Company Names
    < /ion-title>
  < /ion-navbar>
< /ion-header>
 
< ion-content padding>
< ion-list no-lines>
  < ion-item *ngFor="let item of items; let i = index;"
             [ngClass]="{'bold': (i % 2 == 0)}">
    {{i+1}}. {{item}}
  < /ion-item>
< /ion-list>
< /ion-content>

This is yet another way of doing the same thing which we did using ternary operator above. Here, if i % 2 is equal to zero, then bold class will be applied, if not it won’t be applied.

changing colors: src/pages/home/home.scss

page-home {
    .bold{
        font-weight: bolder;
        color: blue;
    }
    .normal{
        font-weight: normal;
        color: green;
    }
}

Alternatively the list items appear in bold and in normal font weight, along with blue and green colors respectively.
