[javascript] How to reload current page?

I have a page for editing user, it has some children components inside. Each children components can change or doing some effect to its parent component.

So instead of emitting the changes to parent and updating some fields, I did a "reload" of the current page with

private route: ActivatedRoute;

reload(){
    this.router.navigate(["/admin/user/edit/"+this.user.id]);
}

Basically, it redirects to the current page. For example, the current page is http://web.info/admin/user/edit/9 it will be redirected to this page with the hope all the data inside that page reloaded with the newest data.

but it seems the angular won't redirect/reload the same page with the router.navigate

How I should reload a current page?

Edit:

Here is the reason why I need to reload the page instead of manually updating the data on the current page. I need to do updates on Other Component, when I did the update it will add something to History Component. I need to refresh the User Component and History Component together since both components affected by the changes in Other Component.

This question is related to javascript angular

The answer is


I have solved following this way

import { Router, ActivatedRoute } from '@angular/router';

constructor(private router: Router
          , private activeRoute: ActivatedRoute) {

}
reloadCurrentPage(){
   let currentUrl = this.router.url;
   this.router.navigateByUrl('/', {skipLocationChange: true}).then(() => {
   this.router.navigate([currentUrl]);
   });
 }

I believe Angular 6 has the BehaviorSubject object. My sample below is done using Angular 8 and will hopefully work for Angular 6 as well.

This method is a more "reactive" approach to the problem, and assumes you are using and are well versed in rxjs.

Assuming you are using an Observable in your parent component, the component that is used in your routing definition, then you should be able to just pulse the data stream pretty easily.

My example also assumes you are using a view model in your component like so...

vm$: Observable<IViewModel>;

And in the HTML like so...

<div *ngIf="(vm$ | async) as vm">

In your component file, add a BehaviorSubject instance...

private refreshBs: BehaviorSubject<number> = new BehaviorSubject<number>(0);

Then also add an action that can be invoked by a UI element...

  refresh() {
    this.refreshBs.next(1);
  }

Here's the UI snippet, a Material Bootstrap button...

<button mdbBtn color="primary" class="ml-1 waves-dark" type="button" outline="true"
                    (click)="refresh()" mdbWavesEffect>Refresh</button>

Then, in your ngOnIt function do something like this, keep in mind that my example is simplified a bit so that I don't have to provide a lot of code...

  ngOnInit() {

    this.vm$ = this.refreshBs.asObservable().pipe(
      switchMap(v => this.route.queryParamMap),
      map(qpm => qpm.get("value")),
      tap(v => console.log(`query param value: "${v}"`)),

      // simulate data load
      switchMap(v => of(v).pipe(
        delay(500),
        map(v => ({ items: [] }))
      )),
      
      catchError(e => of({ items: [], error: e }))
    );
    
  }

I found a better way than reload the page. instead i will reload the data that just got updated. this way faster n better


Without specifying the path you can do:

constructor(private route: ActivatedRoute, private router: Router) { }

reload() {
  this.router.routeReuseStrategy.shouldReuseRoute = () => false;
  this.router.onSameUrlNavigation = 'reload';
  this.router.navigate(['./'], { relativeTo: this.route });
}

And if you use query params you can do:

reload() {
  ...
  this.router.navigate(['./'], { relativeTo: this.route, queryParamsHandling: 'preserve' });
}

Because it's the same component. You can either listen to route change by injecting the ActivatedRoute and reacting to changes of params and query params, or you can change the default RouteReuseStrategy, so that a component will be destroyed and re-rendered when the URL changes instead of re-used.


private router: Router

this.router.navigateByUrl(url)

It will redirect to any pages without data lost (even current page). Data will remain as is.


This is the most simple solution if you just need to refresh the entire page

   refreshPage() {
    window.location.reload();
   }

import { DOCUMENT } from '@angular/common';
import { Component, Inject } from '@angular/core';

@Component({
  selector: 'app-refresh-banner-notification',
  templateUrl: './refresh-banner-notification.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./refresh-banner-notification.component.scss']
})

export class RefreshBannerNotificationComponent {

  constructor(
    @Inject(DOCUMENT) private _document: Document
  ) {}

  refreshPage() {
    this._document.defaultView.location.reload();
  }
}

Not really refreshing the page but thought it would help someone else out there looking for something simple

ngOnInit(){
    startUp()
}

startUp(){
    // Codes
}

refresh(){
    // Code to destroy child component
    startUp()
}

With angular 11 you can just use this:

in route config add runGuardsAndResolvers: 'always'

const routes: Routes = [
  { path: '', component: Component, runGuardsAndResolvers: 'always' },
];

and this is your method to reload:

  reloadView(): void {
    this.router.navigated = false;
    this.router.navigate(['./'], { relativeTo: this.route });
  }

this will trigger any resolver on that config


A little bit tricky to do something so simple but had no luck trying to reload and recreate the entire parent & child components with current solution.

Angular Router now provides strategy configuration to tell the Router what to do in case you navigate to the same URL as this user suggests in this GitHub issue.

First of all you can configure what to do while setting up the Router (your router module).

@NgModule({
   imports: [RouterModule.forRoot(routes, { onSameUrlNavigation: 'reload' })],
   exports: [RouterModule]
})

Or, if you are like me and don't want to change the entire router module behaviour you can do it with a method/function like this:

reloadComponent() {
    this._router.routeReuseStrategy.shouldReuseRoute = () => false;
    this._router.onSameUrlNavigation = 'reload';
    this._router.navigate(['/same-route']);
}

Of course you have to first inject Router in your component's constructor:

// import { Router } from '@angular/router';
...
constructor(private _router: Router){}
...

Somehow and as pointed out by @Abhiz you have to set shouldReuseRoute, with just configuring the Router by itself the page reload doesn't work with this aproach.

I've used an arrow function for shouldReuseRoutebecause new TSLint rules won't allow non-arrow functions.


Here is the simple one

if (this.router && this.router.url === '/') { or your current page url e.g '/home' 
    window.location.reload();
  } else {
    this.router.navigate([url]);
  }
