I need my webview to also manage file downloads (typically pdf files) through a web component


#1

So my webview does a great job of displaying responsive mobile web pages. My challenge occurs pretty much when the user needs to download a file. I will really appreciate a walkthrough showing how to dynamically handle download links with the ‘web’ component encountered by the user while they use the webview to surf.

Thanks.
