Creating webview through Android Studio

My first day with creating android app and I am stuck. I have followed the steps to create the webview by android studio. However after countless hours, I am still not able to create webview app. The application stops in the emulator even before loading and displays error: "Unfortunately the application has stopped".

Any help will is appreciated. My files are below:

AndroidManifest.xml

 <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>        
 <manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
 package="myApp2.com.example.myapplication2.myapp2">
<application

    android:icon="@drawable/ic_launcher"
    android:label="@string/app_name"
    android:theme="@style/AppTheme" >
    <activity
        android:name="myApp2.com.example.myapplication2.myapp2.MainActivity"

        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
        mWebView.loadUrl("http://beta.html5test.com/");
    }


    @Override

        // Inflate the menu; this adds items to the action bar if it is present.
        getMenuInflater().inflate(R.menu.main, menu);
        return true;
    }

    @Override
    public boolean onOptionsItemSelected(MenuItem item) {
        // Handle action bar item clicks here. The action bar will
        // automatically handle clicks on the Home/Up button, so long
        // as you specify a parent activity in AndroidManifest.xml.
        int id = item.getItemId();
        if (id == R.id.action_settings) {
            return true;
        }
        return super.onOptionsItemSelected(item);
    }

}

Hey i have managed to make it work. Just rearrange your code a bit as follows onCreate() :-

 @Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
    setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

    mWebView = (WebView) findViewById(R.id.activity_main_webview);
    WebSettings webSettings = mWebView.getSettings();
    webSettings.setJavaScriptEnabled(true);
    mWebView.loadUrl("http://beta.html5test.com/");
}

Android Manifest File :- write your permission before <application>

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" />
<application
android:allowBackup="true"
android:icon="@drawable/ic_launcher"
android:label="@string/app_name"
android:theme="@style/AppTheme" >
<activity
    android:name="myApp2.com.example.myapplication2.myapp2.MainActivity"
    android:label="@string/app_name" >
    <intent-filter>
        <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
        <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
    </intent-filter>
</activity>


Try this code:

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {

@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
    setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

    WebView webView = findViewById(R.id.webView);
    webView.getSettings().setJavaScriptEnabled(true);
    webView.setWebViewClient(new WebViewClient());
    webView.loadUrl("http://google.com");

    // If you deal with HTML then execute loadData instead of loadUrl
    //webView.loadData("YOUR HTML CONTENT","text/html", "UTF-8");
}

You have to set WebView in layout and define it with Id

Don't forget permission in manifests.


public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity
{

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState)
    {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

        WebView myWebView = (WebView) findViewById(R.id.webView);
        myWebView.loadUrl("http://www.google.com");
        WebSettings webSettings = myWebView.getSettings();
        webSettings.setJavaScriptEnabled(true);




    }
}

  1. You will use Android studio to create an Android application under a package com.example.sairamkrishna.myapplication.
  2. Modify src/MainActivity.java file to add WebView code.
  3. Modify the res/layout/activity_main to add respective XML components
  4. Modify the AndroidManifest.xml to add the necessary permissions
  5. Run the application and choose a running android device and install the application on it and verify the results.
