[solved][Qt 5.4][QML] ios webview not working as expected

  • Hi

    I got a problem with WebView component. I am trying to load a page but my url is never set. Whenever I check url its alweys empty string.

    My simple code:

    import QtQuick 2.0
    import QtWebView 1.0
    Item {
        width: 100
        height: 62
        z: 0
            width: parent.width
            height: parent.height
            url: "qrc:/hotel/html/index.html"

    my pro file:

    QT +=webview

    @kolegs AFAIK WebView just invokes the web browser that is native to the underlying operating system and thus it may not understand how to load file from Qt's Resource System.

  • WebView element is actually a wrapped native iOS web view. It won't work with a Qt resource file. You should try something like this:
    Your *.pro file:

    ios {
    	BUNDLE_DATA.files = $$$$files($$$$PWD/resources/index.html)    // it should be double dollar signs here!

    Your *.qml file:

    WebView {
        width: parent.width
        height: parent.height
        url: "./index.html"

    Make sure resources/index.html is present in your source code directory.

  • You may be right but why isn't working with remote pages(tried www.google.pl), and why url string is always empty.

    @kolegs Perhaps you should try prepending http:// to the url.

  • Dont know why but it works with Qt 5.5RC version without any changes in code
