[FIXED] PrimeNG Table filterGlobal TS2339: Property 'value' does not exist on type 'EventTarget'


All of the examples I have found for the PrimeNG p-table show the following example for filtering a table.

<input pInputText type="text" (input)="dt.filterGlobal($event.target.value, 'contains')" placeholder="Filter" />

When I use this I get a compile error.

error TS2339: Property 'value' does not exist on type 'EventTarget'.

Note: I do have strict mode turned on.


try to parse the target to an HTMLInputElement first:

<input pInputText type="text" (input)="applyFilterGlobal($event, 'contains')" placeholder="Filter" />

and in your component:

applyFilterGlobal($event, stringVal) {
  this.dt.filterGlobal(($event.target as HTMLInputElement).value, stringVal);

event.target is an HTMLElement, because you are in strict mode, and HTMLElement doesnt have the value property, the compile engine throws the error, changing the target to HTMLInputElement solves it
