Observable and ngFor in Angular 2

Below is a simple sample Angular 2 component which uses rxjs Observables.

import { Component , OnInit } from '@angular/core'; import { Observable } from 'rxjs/Observable'; import 'rxjs/add/observable/of'; @Component({ selector:'ob', template: ` <ul> <li *ngFor="let x of obj | async"> {{x}} </li> </ul> ` }) export class ObComponent implements OnInit{ obj:Observable<number>; ngOnInit() { this.obj = Observable.of(1,2,3,4); } }

This component throws below error

inline template:15:12 caused by: Cannot find a differ supporting object '4' of type 'number'. NgFor only supports binding to Iterables such as Arrays.

Any idea what could be the issue ?


Observable.of. emits values in a sequence so *ngFor receives single values through async instead of the array that *ngFor expects.


obj:Observable<number[]>;//declare Observable.of([1,2,3,4])
