Webview doesn't load anymore from file:///

Hello, I need to update an application that I am working on, the thing is that as the title says, it does not load from file:///android_asset/index.html

A while back the file was uploading fine, but now it just closes the app and crashes. Is file:/// no longer supported for webviews? Any help would be appreciated

Try

http://localhost/your_file_name.html

it happened to me too yesterday.
i changed the path to http: // localhost, but the app crashes in both develop mode and build mode.
maybe it’s a bug?

please provide a logcat output

app crash solution
i found that i have to put some text in About screen title, and the app not crashed anymore, but if i put again the webviewer with the file:///android_asset/index.html… it doesnt load…
No errors but the webview stays empty

Don’t use it like this try @Boban 's suggestion

thanks every one!
the file:///android_asset/index.html - WORKS!
in the companion and also in exported apk

The reason of no showing my html was because the height of a parent was in automatic changed to full and the html gets rendered
