I am developing a small application in Android. I come across a problem, and not sure whether it is possible in Android platform. I have some local html files. There is an Activity contains a webview, which is used to display these local html files. In some cases, I want to display a picture selected from phone into one of these local html files. Is it possible? Has anyone resolved such problem? I appreciate any of your replies.
This should be very simple, but I can't find the answer anywhere. How do I load an html file (which I assume I keep in res/raw folder) into a webview? neither mWebView.loadUrl("file:///raw/about"); or mWebView.loadUrl("file:///raw/about.htmal"); works. What's the correct syntax or arrangement.
My open source application needs to browse local HTML files on the SD card, and WebView is not enough because I need history and bookmarks. I wrote the following code. It correctly opens the browser, but fails to reach catalog.html and in fact it just opens whatever page was last browsed:
Uri uri = Uri.parse("content://com.android.htmlfileprovider/sdcard/ myapp/catalog.html"); Intent intent = new Intent(); intent.setData(uri); intent.setClassName("com.android.browser", "com.android.browser.BrowserActivity"); startActivity(intent);
I thought it might be interesting to some developers. Here's a complete working example of ContentProvider for this purpose: http://blog.tourizo.com/2009/02/how-to-display-local-file-in-android. I also found a topic here: http://groups.google.com/group/android-developers/browse_thread/threa. Looks like the topic was closed and I couldn't reply there, so I created new one.
I have a WebView on my Android application which loads (WebView.loadUrl()) different local HTML files from phone's internal storage. I would like to include some custom css styles for them, Now, I could have my app edit every HTML file and add linking reference for the CSS file.I could also read the file contents, add the CSS linking and use WebView.loadData() to load it.But is it possible to do this a lot simpler and efficiently.Note: The HTML files are downloaded from a website. So editing them manually is not possible in this case, but once downloaded they can be edited via the app if necessary.
We have a large HTML which contents 1000's of lines. But we want to show content of the HTML file that fits a single screen. We want provide a '>' kind of to show the next contents of the same HTML file. Our objective is to only display the HTML contents that fits the screen.Similar to reader application For user, it seems there are several pages. Is there any way in which we can achieve this functionality. Whether WebView has any function related to full fill the requirement.

I am wondering how does webview load a particular URL. Does it create a new thread or load the URL in the same thread i.e. UI thread? The reason I am asking this is I am facing some weird wakeup lock issue when I launch an Activity from current Activity (in current Activity's onCreate method) which creates a WebView in it's onCreate method and loads a URL using loadUrl method. So when I am done with this activity and go back to the Activity which launched this is restarted because wakeup lock time was expired.I googled it and found out that if onCreate method of an Activity takes too long then this type of issue might occur. Have any of you faced this kind of issue involving a WebView? Any kind of help would be really appreciated.
I would like to preemptively get the HTML code of a webpage that is to be loaded in a webView, parse it using regex, and display only the HTML code that I want, while letting the webpage still think it has loaded everything. Is there any way to do that in the WebViewClient.onLoadResource() or similar methods?
I've been building my app using the standard xml and Java Android layout libraries. I don't like the set up very much; and I would prefer to build the ui in html. I've been testing the speed of the WebView; and it seems that it is quite fast at rendering. Does anyone know if Google has ever said anything on the subject of building the ui in html and rendering it in a WebView? I know it's perfectly legal to render the UI in the WebView; but am I going to run into some problem in the future?
I am trying to create a hybrid Android app which pulls HTML content from a web server and renders it in a WebView. However, I also want the external HTML to be able to reference images that are packaged within the android app. I realize that currently it is not possible to do something like <img src="file:///my_image.jpg" /> in the HTML. I have seen discussions of using the ContentProvider to create name spaces in the html, however all of these examples seem to assume that the actual html page is also on the device and tend to use WebView.loadData(). So, is there someway that it is possible to do this? The main goal is to package all the application images/css in the android app, but put the bulk of the application on an external server that returns the actual markup.
I'm receiving XML which contains elements of HTML and I want to display these to the users. Therefore, I have to set the content programmatically, rather than extract the strings from an android xml resource. I'm using a WebView to display the content, rather than TextView, as it handles some of the HTML markup - bold text for example, and links. However WebView does appear to be rather limited.
I have a WebView that I'm using to open some files stored in the assets/ directory of my project. It works fine for most of the files, but there's one in particular (and I'm sure others I haven't found) that it just will not open.Code...
