Android Cordova 4.0.2 Webview Intercept Requests

Recently I was working on Android cordova app where I was using cordova 4.0.2 version. In this project I have to intercept urls loaded in webview and do some stuff.

In earlier cordova version we can do following.

myWebView.setWebViewClient(new WebViewClient() {
         public boolean shouldOverrideUrlLoading(WebView view, String url)  {

But in newer version of cordova this will not work. So what to do? Here is this blog I am going to explain it.

First of all lets get webView

myWebView = (WebView) this.appView.getView();

Then add WebViewClient to webView.

myWebView.setWebViewClient(new SystemWebViewClient((SystemWebViewEngine) this.appView.getEngine()){
          public boolean shouldOverrideUrlLoading(WebView view, String url) {
          public void onPageFinished(WebView view, String url) {
                   super.onPageFinished(view, url);

As you can see in cordova newer version they have added new class SystemWebViewClient in cordova lib that we have to use for accessing functions like shouldOverrideUrlLoading and onPageFinished.

Hope this helps you.
