let documenteditor: DocumentEditor = new DocumentEditor({ enableSfdtExport: true, enableWordExport: true, enableTextExport: true });


//Open the sfdt document.;

document.getElementById('export').addEventListener('click', () => {
    let http: XMLHttpRequest = new XMLHttpRequest();'POST', 'http://localhost:5000/api/documenteditor/ExportSFDT');
    http.setRequestHeader('Content-Type', 'application/json;charset=UTF-8');
    http.responseType = 'json';
    //Serialize document content as SFDT.
    let sfdt: any = { content: documenteditor.serialize() };
