I am trying to show a model dialog in my application. For that as a first step I imported Material Dialog
into my component.ts file

import {MatDialog} from '@angular/material/dialog';

But after importing this I am getting tones of compile errors like this

Error: node_modules/@angular/material/core/common-behaviors/constructor.d.ts:14:55 - error TS2304: Cannot find name 'abstract'.

Havent got an idea about these error. I am new to Angular itself. When just removing the import line, all errors are gone.. Compiles successfully


Solution

Downgrading the angular/material version to the LTS 11.2.3 from HERE should fix this issue.
