You can get the loaded PDF document’s data from the PDF Viewer component using the GetDocumentAsync() method of PDF Viewer.

The following code example shows how to get the loaded/edited document data and re-load the document.

@using Syncfusion.Blazor.PdfViewerServer
@using Syncfusion.Blazor.Buttons

<SfButton @onclick="retrieve">Retrieve Document</SfButton>
<SfButton @onclick="load">ReloadRetrievedDocument</SfButton>
<SfPdfViewerServer @ref="@PDFViewer" DocumentPath="@DocumentPath"> </SfPdfViewerServer>

    public SfPdfViewerServer PDFViewer { get; set; }

    //Sets the PDF document path for initial loading.
    private string DocumentPath { get; set; } = "wwwroot/Data/PDF_Succinctly.pdf";

    byte[] save;

    public async void retrieve()
        //Gets the loaded PDF document
        save = await PDFViewer.GetDocumentAsync();

    public void load()
        //Converts the byte array into base64 string.
        string base64String = Convert.ToBase64String(save);
        //Loads the PDF document from the specified base64 string.
        PDFViewer.LoadAsync("data:application/pdf;base64," + base64String, null);
