Angular2 call method of other component /Module


You can create one service which is shared between your header and form component in which you can define Observable so that you can subscribe to that Observable from form and perform some action when you receive some value from header.

//common.service.ts

import { Injectable, Inject } from '@angular/core';
import { Subject }    from 'rxjs/Subject';
@Injectable()
export class CommonService {
  private notify = new Subject<any>();
  /**
   * Observable string streams
   */
  notifyObservable$ = this.notify.asObservable();

  constructor(){}

  public notifyOther(data: any) {
    if (data) {
      this.notify.next(data);
    }
  }
}

//header.component.ts

import { Component, OnInit, OnDestroy } from '@angular/core';
import { Subscription } from 'rxjs/Subscription';

import { CommonService } from './common.service';

@Component({
  selector   : 'header',
  templateUrl : './header.html'
})
export class HeaderComponent implements OnInit, OnDestroy {
  constructor( private commonService: CommonService ){
  }

  ngOnInit() {       
  }

  onSubmit(){
    // this method needs to be called when user click on submit button from header
    this.commonService.notifyOther({option: 'onSubmit', value: 'From header'});
  }
}

//form.component.ts

import { Component, OnInit, OnDestroy } from '@angular/core';
import { Subscription } from 'rxjs/Subscription';

import { CommonService } from './common.service';

@Component({
  selector   : 'form',
  templateUrl : './form.html'
})
export class FormComponent implements OnInit, OnDestroy {
  private subscription: Subscription;
  constructor( private commonService: CommonService ){
  }

  ngOnInit() {
    this.subscription = this.commonService.notifyObservable$.subscribe((res) => {
      if (res.hasOwnProperty('option') && res.option === 'onSubmit') {
        console.log(res.value);
        // perform your other action from here

      }
    });
  }

  ngOnDestroy() {
    this.subscription.unsubscribe();
  }
}
