Detailed Description

The BrowserView component provides a visible interface to browse a web page. BrowserView should be used in place of WebView if navigation through multiple pages is a priority. On iOS, BrowserView opens a Safari view, and on Android, a Chrome view; on all other platforms, BrowserView opens a custom AppFramework browser with buttons for navigating forward and back in your page history, opening the current page in your device's default standalone browser, and copying the page URL to the clipboard.

Item {
        Button {
                        text: "Open BrowserView"
                        onClicked: {
                browserView.show()
                        }
        }

        BrowserView {
                id: browserView
        anchors.fill: parent
        url: "https://appstudio.arcgis.com/"
        primaryColor:"#8f499c"
        foregroundColor: "#f7d4f4"
        }
}

To avoid UI scaling issues, the enableHighDpi property in the display section of appinfo.json should be set to true.
