Trigger native code from WebView - Invocation?



I have a WebView inside my app and want to trigger native code on certain events in the WebView. In iOS or Android i would do a call to a URI (myapp://dothisfunction) and i have that URI regged to the app. But is that possible in BB 10? What is the alternative?

Re: Trigger native code from WebView - Invocation?

Just handle NavigationRequested in Cascades. Or call the native side from JS using navigator.cascades.postMessage() and handle it in messageReceived. No need for custom URL's or the Invoke framework.
