Android WebView Example

WebView is a view that display web pages inside your application. You can also specify HTML string and can show it inside your application using WebView. WebView makes turns your application to a web application.

In order to add WebView to your application, you have to add <WebView> element to your xml layout file. Its syntax is as follows −

<WebView xmlns:android=”http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android”
android:id=”@+id/webview”
android:layout_width=”fill_parent”
android:layout_height=”fill_parent”
/>

Example

Here is an example demonstrating the use of WebView Layout. It creates a basic web application that will ask you to specify a url and will load this url website in the WebView.

1) MainActivity.java

package com.w2class.myapplication;

import android.app.Activity;
import android.os.Bundle;

import android.view.Menu;
import android.view.MenuItem;
import android.view.View;

import android.webkit.WebView;
import android.webkit.WebViewClient;

import android.widget.Button;
import android.widget.EditText;
import android.widget.TextView;
import android.widget.Toast;

import java.io.FileInputStream;
import java.io.FileOutputStream;

public class MainActivity extends Activity {
Button b1;
EditText ed1;

private WebView wv1;
@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

b1=(Button)findViewById(R.id.button);
ed1=(EditText)findViewById(R.id.editText);

wv1=(WebView)findViewById(R.id.webView);
wv1.setWebViewClient(new MyBrowser());

b1.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
@Override
public void onClick(View v) {
String url = ed1.getText().toString();

wv1.getSettings().setLoadsImagesAutomatically(true);
wv1.getSettings().setJavaScriptEnabled(true);
wv1.setScrollBarStyle(View.SCROLLBARS_INSIDE_OVERLAY);
wv1.loadUrl(url);
}
});
}

private class MyBrowser extends WebViewClient {
@Override
public boolean shouldOverrideUrlLoading(WebView view, String url) {
view.loadUrl(url);
return true;
}
}

@Override
public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu) {
// Inflate the menu; this adds items to the action bar if it is present.
getMenuInflater().inflate(R.menu.menu_main, menu);
return true;
}

@Override
public boolean onOptionsItemSelected(MenuItem item) {
// Handle action bar item clicks here. The action bar will
// automatically handle clicks on the Home/Up button, so long
// as you specify a parent activity in AndroidManifest.xml.

int id = item.getItemId();

//noinspection SimplifiableIfStatement
if (id == R.id.action_settings) {
return true;
}
return super.onOptionsItemSelected(item);
}
}
2) res/layout/activity_main.xml
