  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
export class AppModule { }

    selector: 'app-container',
    template:`<ejs-richtexteditor id='iframeRTE' [(value)]='value' [toolbarSettings]='tools'></ejs-richtexteditor>`,
    providers: [ToolbarService, LinkService, ImageService, HtmlEditorService, TableService]
    export class AppComponent  {
        public tools: object = {
