  • Name
    Here you give the element a name. This name is only used within appdoo. For example, you can quickly see in the outline where each Web View is located. You can also edit the name by double-clicking on the Web View in the outline. We recommend that you assign unique names when working with Layout Constraints and Data Links.

  • URL
    In this field, specify the URL of the webpage to be displayed in the Web View.

  • Open Link in Safari
    If you select this checkbox, links are not opened in the current Web View, but in Safari. This causes the user to leave your iOS app. However, your app remains open in the background.

  • Show Activity Indicator
    If you select this checkbox, a spinning wheel is displayed in the middle of the Web View during the loading process of the webpage. If all components of the webpage have been loaded, the spinning wheel is automatically hidden.

  • Zoom Contents Automatically
    If you select this checkbox, the webpage is scaled to fit and the user can zoom in and zoom out.

  • Background Color
    Here you define the background color of your Web View.


  • Hidden appdoo - Elements - Web View is Hidden

    If you activate the “Hidden” checkbox, your Web View will still be present on your work space, but will not be displayed. This can be useful, for example, if you only want to display the Web View under certain circumstances. You can control this via the “Hidden” field in the “Data Links” area.
