    Define an Anchor Point Where to Render Dynamic Components in Angular

    5 - 6

    When we dynamically instantiate a component, we obviously have to know where to place such component within another component’s template.

    For that purpose we will learn how to use a custom directive which exposes a ViewContainerRef and serves us as an anchor point we can then reference later.

    We also explore a second variant, using a simple template variable and a @ViewChild which just exposes the ViewContainerRef.
