In this example the application will open a Snackbar with different colors for success or error. This example assumes that Angular Material has already been installed with the following.

ng add @angular/material

From your component.ts file, import the SnackBar and your own service;

import { MatSnackBar, MAT_SNACK_BAR_DATA, MatSnackBarRef } from '@angular/material/snack-bar';
import { YourService } from 'src/app/services/your.service';

Add it to the constructor

constructor(private snackBar: MatSnackBar, 
            private YOURSERVICE: YourService ) { }

Function to open the snackbar.

Note the position is to appear at the top versus the default (bottom).

openSnackBar(message: string, action: string, toolbarColor: string) {, action, {
      duration: 2000,
      verticalPosition: 'top',
      panelClass: ['mat-toolbar', toolbarColor]

The service call success or error.

this.obsSubscription = this.YOURSERVICE.addRecord(this.dataForm).subscribe((data) => {

      if (data.status === 409) {
        this.openSnackBar(data.msg, 'Close', 'mat-warn');
      } else {
        this.openSnackBar(data.msg, 'Close', 'mat-primary');
    (err: HttpErrorResponse) => {

There are three different options for color. mat-primary, mat-warn, and mat-accent.
