Usage of WebView

I want to use WebView, so that I can show the webpage a native app feel. Are there any good examples on the usage of webview.?


I tried the below code:


From my Main UI, I click a button, on click of the button I call the below code, but still my view is in the main UI only.. Smiley Sad


WebView *view = new WebView();

Re: Usage of WebView



You'll need to add it to a page or a container just like other regular controls.



From the docs it seems it should be added to ScrollView to make it scrollable & zoomable.


If you want to show it fullscreen I guess you'll have to create a Sheet, put ScrollView and Container inside of a Sheet then add the WebView to the container. Then create & display the sheet.
