I am working on an app that has people uploading PDFs and having a preview of it on the screen. Sometimes, they want to delete and reupload a different PDF. I am having difficulty clearing the data.

<pdf-viewer [src]="exhibitMapData"
                    [render-text]="false"
                    [show-all]="false"
                    [original-size]="false"
                    [fit-to-page]="false"
                    style="display: block"
                    >
        </pdf-viewer>

In the component I have tried to this.exhibitMapData = null and it doesn’t change anything. I am guessing there’s some sort of local caching other than with the bound variable in src ?

Please advise

  1. Thank you very much. This works perfectly. I just expected to clear the src variable to null and it would clear the preview.
