<q-pdfviewer
  v-model="show"
  src="'https://www.ets.org/Media/Tests/GRE/pdf/gre_research_validity_data.pdf'"
  type="pdfjs"
  content-class="absolute"
/>
 
or
 
<template>
  <div class="container q-pa-lg">
    <q-pdfviewer
      v-model="show"
      :src="src"
      type="html5"
      content-class="fit container"
      inner-content-class="fit container"
    />
  </div>
</template>
 
<script>
export default {
  name: 'Container',
  props: {
    src: String
  },
 
  data () {
    return {
      show: true
    }
  }
}
</script> 
 
<style>
.container {
  max-width: 50%;
  max-height: 70%;
  min-width: 400px;
  min-height: 600px;
  width: 100%;
  height: 100%;
}
</style> 
 

Using blob data (for type="html5" only):

fetchPDF (payload) {
  this.$axios.post('/my/url/to/pdf', payload, { responseType: 'blob' }).then(res => {
    // create the blob
    const blob = new Blob([res.data], { type: res.data.type })
    // set reactive variable
    pdfSrc = window.URL.createObjectURL(blob)
  }).catch(err => {
    this.$q.notify({
      message: 'Error downloading PDF',
      type: 'negative',
      textColor: 'white',
      color: 'negative',
      icon: 'error',
      closeBtn: 'close',
      position: 'top'
    })
  })
}

NOTE: QPdfviewer now has support for native HTML5 PDF viewer and for PDFJS. Use type="html5" or type="pdfjs". If you previously has this app extension, and want to use the pdfjs, you will need to re-install it. An update will not get the PDFJS for you. If you update, you can run quasar ext invoke @quasar/qpdfviewer instead of re-installing.


NOTE: QPdfviewer uses the <object> tag for displaying the PDF (type="html5" only). Should the browser not support this, the fallback is to use an <iframe>. And, should this also not be supported by the browser, then some text will be displayed with a link to the PDF so the user can download it for off-line viewing.

When using PDFJS, the PDF is always displayed in an <iframe>.


NOTE: QPdfviewer now works with Electron, but you have to use type="pdfjs" to get this functionality.
