Refresh State of Lightning Component after the lightning navigation gets changed.

How to refresh the state of Lightning Component after change of lightning navigation ?

So in my scenario I am having two record types on opportunity and I am rendering the attributes on the component based on the Record Type ID.

For example let's say I am having "RT1" and "RT2". In my doInIt method I was first checking the record type name & Id and based on that I was rendering the attributes.

At first time while creating new opportunity and selecting "RT1", it was displaying "RT1" in my doInIt method. But while I navigate to opportunity again and try creating a new opportunity with "RT2", my doInIt method didn't get triggered as the component was in his old state where the doInIt method was already triggered.

To solve this issue I added lightning:isUrlAddressable in my component as shown below :

<aura:component description="testComponent" implements="lightning:isUrlAddressable">

After adding the isUrlAddressable simply add a change handler to refresh the state as shown below :

<aura:handler name="change" value="{!v.pageReference}" action="{!c.reInit}" />


 reInit : function(component, event, helper) {

Now the component state will be refreshed automatically. Please comment below if you would like to update something in this post.
