Open a document

There are a few ways to open a document such as from a URL, a blob, the filesystem, or base64 data. Additionally, there are loading options to help WebViewer determine the type of the file being loaded.

Opening a document from Blob

If your document is already in Blob format you can pass the Blob object directly to loadDocument function.

WebViewer(...)
  .then(function(instance) {
    instance.loadDocument(myBlob, { filename: 'myfile.pdf' });

    const { docViewer } = instance;
    docViewer.on('documentLoaded', () => {
      // perform document operations
    });
  });

See more WebViewer events such as documentLoaded to understand when to execute API operations.
