WebView shows checker pattern while HTML is loading

  • This problem has been documented here:


    They say that setting preferredHeight and preferredWidth will fix the problem, however I still see the checker pattern as the page loads. In fact, I can't find a deterministic way of knowing when the page is finished loading. The Webview signal onLoadFinished fires to early and I still see the pattern.

    Has anyone found a work around for this? My current work around is to hide the WebView with a Rectangle, then start a 2 second timer from onLoadFinished to set the Rectangle opacity = 0. Pretty ugly, and what if the page load takes more than 2 seconds?


  • @mbarclaygmail.com anyone with a workaround?
