I have a page which deals with displaying messages produced from an external source, so far, all is working well.

Currently, when a message has been generated by the external source, the message may contain a link to take you to the operators website for further information, by clicking the link, sailfish-browser is opened, but I would actually prefer WebView to handle the page, but how do I make this work, here's my code so far;


StationMessages.qml

Code:
            Label {
                id: message
                text: model.message
                width: parent.width
                wrapMode: Text.WordWrap
                textFormat: Text.RichText
                x: Theme.horizontalPageMargin + Theme.paddingMedium
                anchors {
                    top: parent.top
                    topMargin: Theme.paddingLarge
                    horizontalCenter: parent.hoizontalCenter
                }
                onLinkActivated: Qt.openUrlExternally(link)
The Webview page set up, but how to link the two pages, for some reason, I cannot wrap my head round this or find any examples;


MessageView.qml

Code:
Page {
    SilicaWebView {
        anchors.fill: parent
        header: PageHeader { title: "Message view" }
        url: ???
    }
}

Read webcat/webpirate source code, it's not that trivial.

It seems to me like you are searching for the pageStack feature to allow attaching a new page with the webview which should load the url for you.

You can easily to this that way.

StationMessages.qml
Code:
...
onLinkActivated: pageStack.push(Qt.resolvedUrl("MessageView.qml"), {"gotoUrl": link})
MessageView.qml
Code:
Page {
    property string gotoUrl
    SilicaWebView {
        anchors.fill: parent
        header: PageHeader { title: "Message view" }
        url: gotoUrl
    }
}
Of course the MessageView.qml maybe needs some GUI elements aswell like a simple bar with back button or reload stop button. Thats something you can take a look at harbour-tidings. It has a simple and easy toolbar (in contrast to my Webcat browser which has a very complicated toolbar thingy): https://github.com/pycage/tidings/bl...bPage.qml#L106

Thank you @llelectronics, that does the trick!....I had been playing with pageStack, I got the webview to open, but couldn't get it to populate with the page, because I was missing the simple 'gotoUrl' function you've shown me!, excellent!

Thanks again,

Regards,

Mark
