Load a Web Page
This recipe shows how to load a web page in a WebView.

Recipe

  • Create a layout file that contains a WebView, such as Main.axml in the example code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<WebView xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
  android:layout_width="fill_parent"
  android:layout_height="fill_parent"
  android:id="@+id/LocalWebView">
</WebView>
  • Use the Main.axml as the view for your activity and assign the WebView to a local variable.
SetContentView (Resource.Layout.Main);

WebView localWebView = FindViewById<WebView>(Resource.Id.LocalWebView);
webView.SetWebViewClient (new WebViewClient ()); // stops request going to Web Browser
localWebView.LoadUrl("http://developer.xamarin.com");

If the website you are navigating to requires Javascript, enable it via the Settings.JavaScriptEnabled property:

webView.Settings.JavaScriptEnabled = true;
webView.LoadUrl("http://youtube.com");
