WebVIew POST to a URL?

Hey ladies and gents,

 

I'm looking to send a post request to a URL in a WebView and have been unable to determine any reasonable way to do so. I'm looking for something similar to the requestContent method of BrowserField in BBOS(http://www.blackberry.com/developers/docs/5.0.0api/net/rim/device/api/browser/field2/BrowserField.ht....

 

Any ideas?

Re: WebVIew POST to a URL?

I have resolved this by calling a web service as normal from within c++, then converting the response into a string. From this point I simply use the loadHtml function in WebView to set the content.

Re: WebVIew POST to a URL?

Probably your best bet. Other options, depending on the use-case:

 

  • put a <form> in the webview and submit the form via evaluateJavaScript()
  • use evaluateJavaScript() to do a standard AJAX post, and handle the result however you like
