Load images in webview from app resources?

Im working on an app that has mulitple images as a core element, and are to be processed inside a webview. 


however they will not display inside the webview.


My file structure is something like this:







Do i have to reference the images in relation to the webview folder, or can I reference them from the root app images folder? if so how?

Re: Load images in webview from app resources?

I think you should be able to access them using the "../images/custom-images/" path.

An easy way to include local images in  Webview  is to use encoded images. You can encode an image here.

Here you needn't have to save your image in your asset folder instead it contained within your hml code itself.
