Something that I meant to ask the NDK experts this week but forgot: Is it now possible to embed a web browser within a native app akin to how that can be done via a web view control in Adobe AIR apps?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Although, if I'm correct Cascades can't be used in PlayBook apps (as of yet)?

I'm still very interested in the answer to this question.
The context is my app "Flix". Currently I have to have a completely separate application "Flix Movie Selector" written in Adobe AIR to allow users to select a movie to watch. That's pretty ugly.
It would be a big improvement to have a browser embedded directly in the native app so that this could all be seamless.
Anyone at RIM know the answer to this?

For Cascades, you can embed a WebView into an app; see the sample weatherguesser MoreInfoPage.
You are correct: Cascades is not yet available for Playbook

Is the plan for Cascades (and thus this specifically ability) to be available on the PlayBook in the next 6 months?

Cascades currently ships as part of the BB10 SDK. The publicly announced plan is that BB10 will be available on the PlayBook sometime after the BB10 phones are released later this year. I can't speculate on dates.
Nor can I speculate on whether Cascades will be publicly released as part of a pre-BB10 PlayBook software release. We only know the knowns
I inquired about native non-Cascades webview and was told that this is not available today.

Thanks very much for clarifying the situation!

This should be available now in OS 10 Beta. I have included and using bb:cascades:WebView in my Native
App and just need an simple example in a Cascase App of what/how to display a HTML5 based URL (Like BrowserField2 would do in OS 7). Do I leave in the Application basics? How do I get it working? I have
OS 10 Simulator and NDK 10 running now and waiting for a simple example, ready to run it and I can post it back here if someone can help me with an example.
