Re: Help ActivityIndicator with Webview

Lets see some of your code!


You should be connecting to the webviews loadProgressChanged SLOT similar to this:

connect(m_WebContent, SIGNAL(loadProgressChanged ( int )),
					this, SLOT(updateProgress ( int )));

 In updateProgress you would do something like this:

void YourClass::updateProgress ( int loadProgress )
if(loadProgress > 99.9f) {
//loading is done, don't need the SLOT anymore. disconnect(m_WebContent, SIGNAL(loadProgressChanged ( int )), this, SLOT(updateProgress ( int )));

//Loading is done, set the activity indicator to invisible. m_WebProgressIndicator->setVisible(false); }
//Update the indicator. m_WebProgressIndicator->setValue((int)loadProgress);

 I'm using a progress indicator, so you would not need to update the value at any point except when loading is finished, if you are using an ActivityIndicator instead.


If you're using QML here's a code sample.

You would do:


onLoadingChanged: {
    if (loadRequest.status == WebLoadStatus.Succeeded) {
        qDebug() << "Load finished.";
