Handle Redirect Window In Android Webview


To handle the redirect window in android Webview we have to override the “onCreateWindow” of WebChromeClient().


Android Webview is used to display HTML content or to load webpage pages in the android app.

WebView uses a WebKit engine to display web pages.
To load the webpage in Webview loadUrl() and loadData() methods are used.

SomeTimes some web pages redirect to another webpage or another window on any click event.
In Webview either the redirected window will not open directly.
To show redirect pages in Webview we need to write some extra code.

Let’s take an example.

To show the webpage in our sample app we have written some HTML code and added that file to the assets folder.


Let’s have look at the main activity code “MainActivity.kt”.


Now if we click on the button then it will not redirect/open any new window.

To open the redirected window we have to override “onCreateWindow” of WebChromeClient().

After overriding the method, we have to create another Webview and a Dialog or view according to the requirement.
Complete Main Activity Code :

After adding the above code to your app you are able to open the redirect window in your hybrid app.



In this blog, we see how we can open a redirected window in our android hybrid app or Webview.
