QQuickWebView doesn't show url

  • Hello,

    I am new to Qt and I am trying to get a very simple program to work correctly, without success. Some background:

    • Using Qt5 built from git

    • Not using qmake build system because I want to use the Qt WebKit library in another project.

    • Using MS Visual Studio Express (2008 and 2010)

    Here is the code, cut down to a minimum to show my problem:

    #include <QtQuick>
    #include <QtGui>
    #include "private/qquickwebview_p.h"

    int main(int argc, char** argv)

    QGuiApplication app(argc, 0);
    QQuickView view(0);
    QList<QQmlError> errors = view.errors();
    if(errors.length() > 0) {
        return 1;
    view.resize(700, 500);;
    QQuickItem* root = view.rootObject();
    QQuickWebView* wv = (QQuickWebView*)root;
    QUrl address(QString(""));
    return app.exec();


    The program compiles and runs without errors.
    It will open a toplevel window just as expected.
    But the top level window shows an empty white surface and won't load

    This is my qml file:
    import QtWebKit 3.0

    WebView {

    I have been playing with Rectangles and other qquick items in the qml file, everything works fine but webkit.

    Any help would be very appreciated.
