[Superpost] Can we go "back" on the webviewer?

Hey Thunkable community,

I’m back seeking advice and suggestion! :slight_smile:

I have created an iOS app, and its on Flight Test.

Now my group of testers are telling me that they can not go back to the previous page.

And I know that on the android you can do the following.

What are options for iOS. Because on apple you can swipe left to right and go back to the previous page you were at. I assumed that was the case with all Thunkable iOS apps as well, because i do not see any blocks for webviewer to go back!!

PLEASE any help would be appreciated!!

Thank you again Thunkable community!!


If you are satisfied with the solution of this problem on JavaScript, then you can try this with the help of Web Viewer and data URI.

Hey Thank you…

Im a still learning JavaScript, but I will do some work and play around.
I wanted to ask you, how would I add the java script to the app or the viewer ?

The basic example is shown below. The first three text blocks are needed. The rest you add at will.


I could not implement the function Back. To do this, you need to load the pages into a frame, but many sites have protection from this.

If Thunkable X had the ability to exchange data with the Web Viewer, then you could try to make the function Back by saving the URL of the visited pages in the list.

Hey Fellow Thunkable Friends,

I am using a web-viewer to display our website, however the app does not have a back function and its very hard to navigate within the web-viewer. To be able to swipe or press a back button is vital and a necessary action. Our app is for a news publication and so users need to navigate back to the previous page is important to us. Our android app has a back function and so for our iOS not to have one is not good.

Just wondering if the Thunkable community had any updates regarding this feature!?

Thank you!!

Hi there,
Loving the new Thunkable X… Just building out an app with the web viewer in it, unfortunately the back button ignores the web viewer and takes you back to the prior screen. Is there a way for the app to “go back” as one would in a web browser?



No, as in not possible? :slight_smile:

Yes, it is still impossible to do.:sunglasses:

Bro it’s possible n easy …
There a lot of video about that …
Just take whenback button pressed block …
Then apply n extension of extended webviewer …
N search for the component “if webviewer can go back” …
N call this component …
Just type how to go back in webviewer on youtube n u will ur answer …
