The Discussion

  • User profile image

    Would it be possible to custom render or draw an element (say a flashlike div) inside webview from native code like C++?

  • User profile image

    By the way, I know flash/silverlight is not supported in webview. But what I'm asking is ..... is it at all possible to draw a subarea within the webview using native code. ... like by getting a window handle to the sub-area maybe. Thanks

    @IslandFox: The webview can only navigate to "web content" so you would not be able to draw content with C++.  A few options to consider, you can generate content locally that you can navigate to, or consider WebGL.

      The other consideration is to draw on top (rather then in) of the weview.
