CodeMirror value is correct, but not displaying

I have been messing with this for the last day and I am out of ideas. If I do a reload on the page, the file comes through fine in code mirror, however on load, it will only show the default text in my text area. I am implementing a file “swapper” I change the url to reflect which file I am in for other parts of my application and would prefer to not have to rely on a page refresh.

The first file loaded always works fine, however when I switch I see nothing but the text in my html text area, even though when I run a getValue() on my code mirror, it is correct.

// Load code - called on page load, and when I load new file
      vm.loadCode = function (data)  {

// Refresh
      vm.refreshCodeView = function () {
          $timeout(function () {
                console.log(vm.myCodeMirror.getValue()); //this shows the correct data
          }, 100);

Here is my options if that has anything to do with it…

// My Code Mirror
vm.mode = getMode();
          var codeMirrorOptions = {
              mode: vm.mode,
              lineNumbers: true,
              lineWrapping: true,
              theme: 'default',
              autoFocus: true,
              foldGutter: true,
              json: (vm.mode == "application/json"),
              lint: (vm.mode == "application/json"),
              extraKeys: {
                "Ctrl-Q": function(cm)
              gutters: ["CodeMirror-linenumbers", "CodeMirror-foldgutter", "CodeMirror-lint-markers"]
          vm.myCodeMirror = CodeMirror.fromTextArea(document.getElementById('html-code-view'), codeMirrorOptions);

          vm.myCodeMirror.setSize("100%", "100%");

My text area

<div id="html-codeview-content" class="row">
                <textarea style="overflow: scroll" id="html-code-view" >
                    Will be replaced by file contents...

CodeMirror.fromTextArea doesn’t save changes back to the textarea during editing, since that’s too expensive for big documents. You can call the editor’s save method to force a save.
