Can we use iframes in html5 apps for BB 7.0 OS Apps ?  Will it really support for one of my web app in which I want to hide the addressbar or the url completely

 

 

How to use iframes

 

 

1) In order to hide / mask the url

 

 

2) Change my orginal url in the browser and replace with other url so that users cant se my real url

 

3)To hide the addressbar

iFrames are supported in BB7, however I usually try and avoid them.  Devs exepect to use them as an embedded browser and very rarely does the internet fit in such a container (or behave entirely as expected).

 

Are you building a WebWorks app, or a native-hybrid-webview app?  If so there should be no address bar at all for the URL you are displaying.  If you want your users to see remote URL content, perhaps just point them at that site URL from inside your app?

Mine is Live TV app where users click on image and it goes to the browser and then plays the video.

 

 

I dont want the url to be shown in the browser or any dummy url to be  shown.
