Web View

Web View

This component embeds a web browser view into your Project. No browser controls are shown, only the page
itself.

The browser is the default provided by the operating system, so has the same features and limitations as
that browser

  • Windows: Internet Explorer 11 (not Edge)
  • MacOS: Safari
  • Android: Android web view (not Chrome)
  • iOS: Mobile Safari

The web view displays the default URL when first shown. You can use the Set Web View URL action to
navigate the web view to a different URL.

If a Umajin component goes over top of the web view, it will be hidden and a placeholder displayed instead.


Properties for Web View Component
