android – Can't type inside a WebView

Posted by: admin June 15, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I have a problem interacting with a WebView. I’m showing an HTML login form within a WebView and I can’t type inside of any of the input fields of the forms. I do can interact with the links, select boxes, buttons, etc.

Here is an example of my code. Basically I’m retrieving the web view from the xml and setting it a WebViewClient and a WebChromeClient.

webview = (WebView) findViewById(R.id.loginWebview);
webview.getSettings().setJavaScriptEnabled(true);

WebViewClient client = new WebViewClient();
webview.setWebViewClient(client);

webview.setWebChromeClient(new WebChromeClient());
webview.loadUrl("http://www.google.com");

Any ideas?

How to&Answers:

You can do the following to solve this:

WebView webView = (WebView)findViewById(R.id.yourWebView);
webView.getSettings().setJavaScriptEnabled(true);
webView.requestFocus(View.FOCUS_DOWN);
