Get PDF information with callback

First define callback function "callBackFn" in your controller,

   // do anything with "pdf"
}

And then use it in your template:

(after-load-complete)="callBackFn($event)"

(page-rendered)

Property Type Required
(page-rendered) callback Optional

Get event when a page is rendered. Called for every page rendered.

Define callback in your component:

pageRendered(e: CustomEvent) {
  console.log('(page-rendered)', e);
}

And then bind it to <pdf-viewer>:

(page-rendered)="pageRendered($event)"

(text-layer-rendered)

Property Type Required
(text-layer-rendered) callback Optional

Get event when a text layer is rendered.

Define callback in your component:

textLayerRendered(e: CustomEvent) {
  console.log('(text-layer-rendered)', e);
}

And then bind it to <pdf-viewer>:

(text-layer-rendered)="textLayerRendered($event)"

(error)

Property Type Required
(error) callback Optional

Error handling callback

Define callback in your component's class

onError(error: any) {
  // do anything
}

Then add it to pdf-component in component's template

(error)="onError($event)"

(on-progress)

Property Type Required
(on-progress) callback Optional

Loading progress callback - provides progress information total and loaded bytes. Is called several times during pdf loading phase.

Define callback in your component's class

onProgress(progressData: PDFProgressData) {
  // do anything with progress data. For example progress indicator
}

Then add it to pdf-component in component's template

(on-progress)="onProgress($event)"

Render local PDF file

In your html template add input:

<input (change)="onFileSelected()" type="file" id="file">

and then add onFileSelected method to your component:

onFileSelected() {
  let $img: any = document.querySelector('#file');

  if (typeof (FileReader) !== 'undefined') {
    let reader = new FileReader();

    reader.onload = (e: any) => {
      this.pdfSrc = e.target.result;
    };

    reader.readAsArrayBuffer($img.files[0]);
  }
}

Set custom path to the worker

By default the worker is loaded from cdnjs.cloudflare.com.

In your code update path to the worker to be for example /pdf.worker.js

(<any>window).pdfWorkerSrc = '/pdf.worker.js';

This should be set before pdf-viewer component is rendered.

Search in the PDF

Use pdfFindController for search functionality.

In your component's ts file:

  • Add reference to pdf-viewer,
  • then when needed execute search()
@ViewChild(PdfViewerComponent) private pdfComponent: PdfViewerComponent;

search(stringToSearch: string) {
  this.pdfComponent.pdfFindController.executeCommand('find', {
    caseSensitive: false, findPrevious: undefined, highlightAll: true, phraseSearch: true, query: stringToSearch
  });
}
