Android :: Loading External Data On Local File In WebView

May 27, 2009

when I load external web page, image or javascript file from local webpage. I can't see external image and can't load javascript or webpage. But I can only see local image. Why I can't load external javascript, webpage or image? Here is the HTML source. (of course, I filled right [daum open API key])

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
"http://"> <html> <head> <meta
http-equiv ="Content-Type" content="text/html;
charset=UTF-8"> <title>Daum 지도 API</title>
<script type="text/javascript"
apikey=[daum open API key]" charset="utf-8"></script> </head> <body>
<div id="map" style="width:600px;
" style="border:1px solid #000">
</div> <img src=" AAAAAAAAE9U/LEHMtyVLdY8/s400/CutyTale10.jpg">
<img src="file:///android_asset/coffeebean.jpg">
<script type="text/javascript">
var map = new DMap("map", {point:new DLatLng(37.48879895934866, 127.03130020103005), level:2} );
</script> <iframe src="" width="300" height="150"></iframe> </body> </html>

and I use this Activity source
import android.os.Bundle; import android.webkit.WebView;
public class OpenAPITest extends Activity {
WebView webView;
/** Called when the activity is first created. */
@Override public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) { super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
webView = (WebView) findViewById(;
webView.setWebViewClient(new DaumMapClient());
} }

How can i play a local swf-file when the user click on some kind of link, java or html?

General :: Playing Local Audio File In Webview App

Feb 3, 2012

When trying to play a local mp3 file included in the APK, nothing happens. However, if I pull an mp3 from the web it works.


< a u d i o src="[URL]..." > WORKS

< a u d i o src="01.mp3" > DOES NOT WORK

I tried looking through logs for clues and found this line. I'm not sure if it's relevant or not.


I'm new to Android development, so I can only guess that the file is somehow inaccessible for streaming.

I'd love to get this figured out though. Having to pull the files remotely every time is not a desirable solution.

Some additional info. Either solution works when tested in the browser. The local file problem only arises when I convert it to an app. I'm using PhoneGap build to create the APK.

Android :: How To Mix External / Local Content In WebView?

Oct 12, 2009

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.

Android :: WebView For Form Based Local AJAX Application

Feb 18, 2009

I'm thinking of using WebView as a container for "Form" based JavaScript+DHTML applications. This is simple fill-out-forms like you have on the web, but now on mobile like for note taking, order taking, and the like.This is to allow web developers to build the bulk of the application - Javascript will perform validation, computations, etc.On the Java side, I only need to implement database CRUD operations, and a ListView to scroll over the forms.To minimize the learning curve on the JavaScript side, I've been thinking on how to emulate AJAX calls so that the web developers don't need to learn new methods to call on the JavaScript-Java bridge. Of course this isn't possible using XMLHttpRequest, so I'm thinking of adapting JQuery or other Javascript libraries for this purpose.

Android : Can SAX Use A Local Resource XML File?

Jul 26, 2010

All of the android examples for XmlPullParser pull from a local resource file, and all of the SAX examples pull the XML from a URL. I've been told SAX is faster, so I'm trying to use that to pull data from a local resource file (res/xml/thefile.xml)

The example code I'm working off of is here. So in that example, the code I want to change is:

URL url = new URL("");
xr.parse(new InputSource(url.openStream()));

Instead of using URL, I want to use getXml(R.xml.thefile)
Is that possible, or does SAX need to get data from a URL?

Android :: Open A Local App File In Another App Via An Intent

Nov 8, 2010

I don't want to store said file on the sdcard in this case. The file also cannot be storage directly in the apps local files directory. It needs to be in a subdirectory, so it cannot write the file using openFileOutput() and MODE_WORLD_READABLE.

The app may download files small files like pdfs and store them locally in a subdirectory. I would like to be able to have the user open these files if they have an app that can open them.

For example here is an intent for sending a pdf:


path being something like: /data/data/packagename/files/subdir/example.pdf

That intent will open a pdf viewer, but the viewer is unable to open the file. I assume this is a permissions issue. I tried Mark Murphy's suggestion here: of using Runtime.getRuntime().exec("chmod 755 " + fileName); but it didn't make any difference. He also suggested a Content Provider but I would like to avoid it if I can because it seems like a lot just to get this file over to another app.

If the content provider is the only option, do I have to save the file to the content provider or can I just use the content provider as a pass through to get it to the other app when I need to?

Android : Load A Local KML / KMZ File To A MapView?

How can i load a local (on my HD) KML or KMZ file to the android application? I know that these lines do the work:

Android :: How To Display An Image From SD Card In WebView

Jul 13, 2010

When I started to display an image from the SDCARD in WebView, I got errors like:
" Not allowed to load local resource: file://".
I�ve found a solution for this, and you don�t even have to care about ContentProviders�
Here�s an example:
/* Using WebView to display the full-screen image */
WebView full = (WebView)findViewById(;
/* Set up the Zoom controls */
FrameLayout mContentView = (FrameLayout) get Window().
final View zoom = this.full.getZoomControls();
mContentView.addView(zoom, ZOOM_PARAMS);
/* Create a new Html that contains the full-screen image */
String html = new String();
html = ("<html><center><img src=""+fileName+""></html>" );
/* Finally, display the content using WebView */
full.loadDataWithBaseURL("file:///sdcard/data/data/com.youproject.example "utf-8",
""); Hope you found it useful, let me know how it works for you!

Android :: Way To Display HTML Markup In WebView?

Sep 13, 2010

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.

Android :: Layout - Webview To Display As A Dialog

Nov 5, 2009

I have a webview I'd like to display as a dialog. I'd like the webview to fill the entire screen, except for a button below it that I'd like to stay at the bottom of the dialog regardless of how much content is in the webview. Currently my webview fills up the dialog just enough to push the button off the screen. I'm sure this is something pretty easy but for the life of me, I haven't been able to find the magical combination of layouts, views and attribute values to get it to play nice. Just to be clear, I've gotten it so the button floats over the webview but I'd like the webview to stop just above the button and scroll, if that makes sense.

Android :: Getting Google Maps To Accept Local KML File?

Mar 5, 2010

I am trying to get googlemaps to accept a local KML file.
final Intent myIntent = new Intent(android.content.Intent.ACTION_VIEW,
Uri.parse("geo:0,0?q=file://" + Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory() + "/locate.kml"));

The file is on the SD card, and is a valid KML file. Google Maps loads up, but says it cannot find the file.
final Intent myIntent = new Intent(android.content.Intent.ACTION_VIEW,

Works fine. geo: 0,0? q= seems to be very under documented, how to use it to refer to a local file?
