            Change the entry of the pdf file to pass the exact path to it by me
            Asked 2022-Apr-14 at 22:27

            I found this code which, you select a pdf file in an input, and it returns the number of pages it has. It turns out that with this way of reading pdfs is the only one I have found that reads absolutely all pdfs correctly.

            What I am trying to do is to isolate the code that reads the pdf file, so that I can pass it the path to the file instead of using the input. It is to then read all the files in a folder and display the total number of pages.

            But I can't figure out where exactly I would have to pass the path to the pdf file.



            Answered 2022-Apr-14 at 20:32

            You can't.

            Browsers don't let you access local paths on a user's computer for security reasons.

            The browser doesn't get to know that the pdf is at /home/USERNAME/confidentialdocs/file.pdf, it just gets a data blob with a given filename.

            Option 1: await the promise

            Just add await before the promise expression. You don't even need those then and catch.

            How do I access local PDF files in my Chrome Extension app?
            Asked 2022-Feb-06 at 08:03

            Google Chrome allows you to preview local PDF files in the browser like pictured below:

            I am working on an extension that takes whatever PDF is in the browser preview and opens it in my custom editor/markup tool.

            I have been successful in loading PDFs from remote URLs because I can just send the remote URL to my server, download it there, and open the PDF in my app using PDFjs.

            How can I accomplish the same functionality for local PDF files?

            I have looked into possibly using javascript to create a File object from local PDF files but Chrome doesn't allow access to the local file system.

            I am hoping to accomplish this functionality by the user just clicking my extension icon, similar to the popular extension, Kami.

            1. Install the babel runtime - yarn add @babel/runtime - courtesy this post.
            2. Material UI icon gives an error, so similarly add the material UI dependencies

            Angular ng2-pdfjs-viewer when used with ngIf breaks the html page
            Asked 2022-Jan-25 at 10:56

            I have been using ng2-pdfjs-viewer in Angular components. However, I need the div element to occupy space in DOM only if a condition is met. So I used *ngIf for the div. However, when I use ngIf the page breaks. In console it does not show any error in main window. In console sidebar there is a notification of 4 errors in vendor.js. However, the errors can not be seen.

            component.html: the part which uses ng2-pdfjs-viewer



            Answered 2022-Jan-24 at 13:44

            Not knowing the contents of pdfViewerAutoLoadCE.pdfSrc || pdfViewerAutoLoadJD.pdfSrc nor seeing the effects of "page broken" it is hard to know for sure whats the problem. But what if you wrap your pdf viewer in ng-container with someCondition upon which the pdf would be shown or not?

            If necessary please adjust the ng-container to depth where only pdf-viewer is affected so that your top level div's stay in the template. That should help to keep your page intact.

            Mozilla led pdf.js is primarily a browser plugin pdf viewer, without editor functions.

            The function your calling doc.pageRemove(doc is for use with PDFTron webview / edit SDK and thus specific to that commercial JavaScript library.
