WebView QML Type

The WebView component displays web content using platform native APIs if available. This avoids using a full web browser stack into your application. More...

Import Statement: import ArcGIS.AppFramework.WebView 1.0




Detailed Description

The WebView component currently supports enterprise logins on mobile platforms, in which the web page may have HTTP Basic Authentication, Windows Authentication or SAML/ADFS. This means that WebView can authenticate to ArcGIS Online or Portal for ArcGIS on iOS and Android devices. A login prompt is displayed for users to enter the username and password. Once the credentials are entered into the displayed login prompt, AppFramework WebView resubmits the request to the same URL with the credential information.

The AppFramework WebView component is extended from Qt's WebView component, and supports all functions of the original component. http://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qml-qtwebview-webview.html

App {
    id: app
    width: 400
    height: 640

    WebView {
        anchors.fill: parent
        url: "http://appstudio.arcgis.com"

[read-only] title : string

Returns the title of the currently loaded web page.
