Webview API

The Webview API allows MIDlets to load web pages as described below.

  • You can render a web page on a Canvas in any rectangular size.

  • You can render a web page on a CustomItem.

You can develop a MIDlet that can either render a URL on a web page or pass it on the native browser to handle it. If it renders on the native browser then after closing it the user can go back to the MIDlet.

The Webview API is compatible with devices running on Nokia Asha software platform 1.4 or newer.

To find out which device models support the Webview API, see Nokia Developer device specifications.
