[FREE] WebViewTools Extension Version 8

Hi there,

I’ve just released Version 8 of WebViewTools Extensions which includes a number of requested features, including getting the source HTM of a website, triggering an event if there’s an error loading the page, and switching between mobile and desktop modes, check it out!


Nice work…


Can this extension block ads? Like it’s not necessary to block it, but I wish it wouldn’t appear in the pop-up.

Good question, I have managed to block popup and redirect ads in the past using the SetOverrideURLChange method, however this would only work for one domain at a time, if you want your users to go between different websites this may not be a solution for you.

Hello, there’s a little problem when you try to dissociate the web view.


Error : Attempt to invoke virtual method ‘void android.webkit.WebView.removeJavascriptInterface(java.lang.String)’ on a null object reference

I don’t think it comes from my blocks I tried different ways to make it work but without result I wonder if version 8 is compatible with Kodular.

In any case thank you for your work!

It’s funny you say that because I just had someone else message me with that issue, there were actually some bugs with the RemoveWebView function. I have now released a version 9 which fixes these issues and adds a new feature, OnProgressChanged event.

Awesome! What a coincidence lol, thanks to you for the speed I’ll try this :grinning:
