How to I set the base url correctly for a Blackberry Cascades 10 Beta 3 SDK WebView?

how do I set the base url correctly for a Blackberry Cascades 10 Beta 3 SDK WebView (I am using the Blackberry 10 Dev Alpha Simulator)? I'm trying to figure out it, and I have made a pretty basic app trying to figure it out. I put a picture of a red circle under a folder called webViewContent that I put under the assets folder in the QNX Momentics IDE. I called the picture redCircle.png, and I am trying to see if I can figure out how to set the base url of a webview correctly by trying to access that red circle.

There is a class bb::cascades::WebView for a webview and I am using a function, setHtml(html, baseUrl);

I have been trying various variations. My html is:

QString html = "This is a test


and for my base url I am using:

QUrl baseUrl = QUrl(QDir::currentPath() + "/app/native/assets/webViewContent/index.html");

I should be seeing the red circle, but I am just seeing an image with a "?", where it should be showing the red circle.

So it seems I am not setting the base url correctly.
