Angular 2 child element attribute not working, use input decorator

When defining a re-usable modal container, I could not get the ‘title’ attribute to appear when set on the parent template’s use of the component.

I was using a modal with a map sibling, as

template: '<div id="map-canvas"></div><modal-container title="Section Notes"></modal-container>'

I figured out the child component needed to use the input decorator on the ‘title’ property. So in modal-container.component.ts, in the export class ModalContainerComponent definition

title: string;


@Input() title: string;

and it worked.
