Topic: FIleUpload plugin reset on form submit

mydancebay priority asked 10 months ago

Expected behavior FileUpload plugin resets uploaded files after form submit.

Actual behavior Files still uploaded in plugin.

Documentation for FIleUpload plugin API hasn't any methods to reset files. Is it possible somehow to do this?

We have public reset method that you can use to manually reset the plugin. Our docs API is missing this information and will be updated in the near future. Here is some code:


        <mdb-file-upload #fileUpload></mdb-file-upload>
        <button class="btn btn-danger" (click)="handleClick()">
          Reset file upload

Component class:

        import { Component, ViewChild } from '@angular/core';
        import { MdbFileUploadComponent } from 'mdb-angular-file-upload';

          selector: 'app-root',
          templateUrl: './app.component.html',
          styleUrls: ['./app.component.scss'],
        export class AppComponent {
          @ViewChild('fileUpload') fileUpload!: MdbFileUploadComponent;

          handleClick(): void {
