It should work properly but for some reason, it doesn’t work.

Here is my spec file with all dependencies used inside it.

import { Component, Input, OnInit } from '@angular/core';
import { FormGroup } from '@angular/forms'
import {
} from '@proxy/data-flows/flow-structure/flow-control-nodes';
import { DictionaryServiceService } from '../../services/dictionary-service/dictionary-service.service';

  selector: 'app-conditional-gate-node',
  templateUrl: './conditional-gate-node.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./conditional-gate-node.component.scss'],
export class ConditionalGateNodeComponent implements OnInit {
  @Input() form: FormGroup;
  @Input() inputHeaders: any[] = [];

  workspaceDic: Record<string, string> = {};

  modeOptionsDic: any[] = [];

  conditionModeOptions = conditionModeOptions;

  constructor(private dictionaryService: DictionaryServiceService) {}

  ngOnInit(): void {
    this.dictionaryService.workspaceDic$.subscribe(res => {
      this.workspaceDic = res;

    this.conditionModeOptions.forEach(option => {
        key: option.key.replace(/([a-z])([A-Z])/g, `$1 $2`),
        value: option.value,

Just did it as per documentation instructions but still facing this error.

It works in other components in the same module which is confusing.

Solution – 1

You should have kept your test code but I will offer you some tips.

The issue arises because you’re providing the actual DictionaryService and this service relies on a bunch of other things and there is something wrong with what it is relying on. Usually, I mock all external dependencies when I am testing.

Check the following out:

describe('ConditionalGateNodeComponent', () => {
  let fixture: ComponentFixture<ConditionalGateNodeComponent>;
  let component: ConditionalGateNodeComponent;
  // !! Declare a mock
  let mockDictionaryService: jasmine.SpyObj<DictionaryService>;
  beforeEach(waitForAsync(() => {
    // !! Create a spy object where the first string argument is optional 
       // and for debugging purposes.
       // The second array of string argument are the public methods you would like to mock
       // The third object argument are instance variables you would like to mock.
   mockDictionaryService = jasmine.createSpyObj<DictionaryService>('DictionaryService', ['getDic'], { workspaceDic$: of({ hello: 'goodbye' }) });

      declarations: [ConditionalGateNodeComponent],
      providers: [
        // !! Provide the fake for the real dependency
        { provide: DictionaryService, useValue: mockDictionaryService },
      // !! Below says that if you see any components you don't know how to paint/render, treat them as dead HTML.
      schemas: [NO_ERRORS_SCHEMA]
  beforeEach(() => {
    fixture = TestBed.createComponent(ConditionalGateNodeComponent);
    component = fixture.componentInstance;
    // !! The first fixture.detectChanges() is when ngOnInit is called

The rest of the tests should be the same more or less. This is a great resource: and I have linked to you the chapter on testing components depending on services.
