This is programma.java

import android.view.View;
import android.view.ViewGroup;
import android.webkit.WebSettings;
import android.webkit.WebView;
import android.widget.TextView;

/**
 * A simple {@link Fragment} subclass.
 */
public class programma extends Fragment {


    public programma() {
        // Required empty public constructor
    }


    @Override
    public View onCreateView(LayoutInflater inflater, ViewGroup container,
                             Bundle savedInstanceState) {

        View rootView = inflater.inflate(R.layout.fragment_programma, container, false);
        WebView heroespage = (WebView) rootView.findViewById(R.id.progwebview);
        WebSettings webSettings = heroespage.getSettings();
        webSettings.setJavaScriptEnabled(true);
        heroespage.loadUrl("http://www.google.it/");

        return rootView;
    }

Fragment_programma.xml

<FrameLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    tools:context="it.mdibonito.futuroremoto.programma">

    <!-- TODO: Update blank fragment layout -->

    <WebView
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="match_parent"
        android:id="@+id/progwebview"
        android:layout_gravity="left|top" />

</FrameLayout>

More details: I’m using the standard Android Studio 2.1.3 Tabbed Activity Style, and I would prefer to keep it.As the title, the problem is that the WebView doesn’t load anything, it just display a white webview. Of course, I’ve already added the permissions to use internet into the android manifest… Any help?

Answer

1. In your myWebClient you’ve overriden shouldOverrideUrlLoading() and you always return true.

This means that you don’t want WebView to handle this url, and you’ll handle it yourself.

If you want WebView to load requested url, return false in `shouldOverrideUrlLoading(). Or even better, don’t override it at all.

2. Are you sure that Programma class is even started? It is an Activity, not Fragment. You use the same layout (fragment_main) in both ProgrammaActivity and in PlaceholderFragment. However, only in ProgrammaActivity you are loading url. PlaceholderFragment does nothing with its WebView

3. This is how your PlaceholderFragment should look like

public static class PlaceholderFragment extends Fragment { /** * The fragment argument representing the section number for this * fragment. */ private static final String ARG_SECTION_NUMBER = “section_number”;

    public PlaceholderFragment() {
    }

    /**
     * Returns a new instance of this fragment for the given section
     * number.
     */
    public static PlaceholderFragment newInstance(int sectionNumber) {
        PlaceholderFragment fragment = new PlaceholderFragment();
        Bundle args = new Bundle();
        args.putInt(ARG_SECTION_NUMBER, sectionNumber);
        fragment.setArguments(args);
        return fragment;
    }

    @Override
    public View onCreateView(LayoutInflater inflater, ViewGroup container,
                         Bundle savedInstanceState) {

        View rootView = inflater.inflate(R.layout.fragment_programma, container, false);
        WebView heroespage = (WebView) rootView.findViewById(R.id.progwebview);
        WebSettings webSettings = heroespage.getSettings();
        webSettings.setJavaScriptEnabled(true);
        heroespage.loadUrl("http://www.google.it/");

        return rootView;
    }
}
