Angular – Error when trying to inject a service into an angular component “EXCEPTION: Can’t resolve all parameters for component”, why


I've built a basic app in Angular, but I have encountered a strange issue where I cannot inject a service into one of my components. It injects fine into any of the three other components I have created, however.

For starters, this is the service:

import { Injectable } from '@angular/core';

export class MobileService {
  screenWidth: number;
  screenHeight: number;

  constructor() {
    this.screenWidth = window.outerWidth;
    this.screenHeight = window.outerHeight;

    window.addEventListener("resize", this.onWindowResize.bind(this) )
  onWindowResize(ev: Event) {
    var win = (ev.currentTarget as Window);
    this.screenWidth = win.outerWidth;
    this.screenHeight = win.outerHeight;

And the component that it refuses to work with:

import { Component, } from '@angular/core';
import { NgClass } from '@angular/common';
import { ROUTER_DIRECTIVES } from '@angular/router';

import {MobileService} from '../';

  selector: 'pm-header',
  templateUrl: 'header.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['header.component.css'],
  directives: [ROUTER_DIRECTIVES, NgClass],
export class HeaderComponent {
  mobileNav: boolean = false;

  constructor(public ms: MobileService) {


The error I get in the browser console is this:

EXCEPTION: Can't resolve all parameters for HeaderComponent: (?).

I have the service in the bootstrap function so it has a provider. And I seem to be able to inject it into the constructor of any of my other components without issue.

Best Solution

Import it from the file where it is declared directly instead of the barrel.

I don't know what exactly causes the issue but I saw it mentioned several times (probably some kind of circular dependency).

It should also be fixable by changing the order of the exports in the barrel (don't know details, but was mentioned as well)
