iOS WebView Swift

iOS WebView application example

This example can be used to open any Web SDK example page just like in browser. To open a page, an URL must be set. For example, Two Way Streaming web page opened on demo server
looks like this

Analyzing the example code

To analyze the code, take WebViewSwift example version available on GitHub:

1. WKWebView object initalizing


Here applicationNameForUserAgent parameter is set to Safari for WebSDK old builds compatibility. In those builds, browser type for WKWebKit default user agent may be detected incorrectly. This is not required after updating WebSDK to build 2.0.171 or newer

lazy var webView: WKWebView = {
    let webConfiguration = WKWebViewConfiguration()
    webConfiguration.allowsInlineMediaPlayback = true
    webConfiguration.mediaTypesRequiringUserActionForPlayback = []
    webConfiguration.applicationNameForUserAgent = "Safari" //Fix for old version of WebSDK
    let webView = WKWebView(frame: .zero, configuration: webConfiguration)
    webView.uiDelegate = self
    webView.translatesAutoresizingMaskIntoConstraints = false
    return webView

2. URL opening


if let url = URL(string: urlText) {
    webView.load(URLRequest(url: url));
