Flutter InAppBrowser Plugin

Pub

A Flutter plugin that allows you to open an in-app browser window. This plugin is a porting of the popular cordova-plugin-inappbrowser!

The Java/Swift code has been reshaped to work with the Flutter API.

Getting Started

For help getting started with Flutter, view our online documentation.

For help on editing plugin code, view the documentation.

Installation

First, add flutter_inappbrowser as a dependency in your pubspec.yaml file.

Usage

Create a Class that extends the InAppBrowser Class in order to override the callbacks to manage the browser events. Example:

import 'package:flutter/material.dart';

import 'package:flutter_inappbrowser/flutter_inappbrowser.dart';

class MyInAppBrowser extends InAppBrowser {

  @override
  void onLoadStart(String url) {
    super.onLoadStart(url);
    print("\n\nStarted $url\n\n");
  }

  @override
  void onLoadStop(String url) {
    super.onLoadStop(url);
    print("\n\nStopped $url\n\n");
  }

  @override
  void onLoadError(String url, String code, String message) {
    super.onLoadStop(url);
    print("\n\nCan't load $url.. Error: $message\n\n");
  }

  @override
  void onExit() {
    super.onExit();
    print("\n\nBrowser closed!\n\n");
  }

}

MyInAppBrowser inAppBrowser = new MyInAppBrowser();

void main() => runApp(new MyApp());

class MyApp extends StatefulWidget {
  @override
  _MyAppState createState() => new _MyAppState();
}

class _MyAppState extends State<MyApp> {

  @override
  void initState() {
    super.initState();
  }

  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return new MaterialApp(
      home: new Scaffold(
        appBar: new AppBar(
          title: const Text('Flutter InAppBrowser Plugin example app'),
        ),
        body: new Center(
          child: new RaisedButton(onPressed: () {
            inAppBrowser.open("https://flutter.io/");
          },
          child: Text("Open InAppBrowser")
          ),
        ),
      ),
    );
  }
}

InAppBrowser.open

Opens a URL in a new InAppBrowser instance, the current browser instance, or the system browser.

inAppBrowser.open(url, target, options);

Opens an url in a new InAppBrowser instance or the system browser.

  • url: The url to load (String). Call [encodeUriComponent()] on this if the url contains Unicode characters.

  • target: The target in which to load the url, an optional parameter that defaults to _self. (String)

    • _self: Opens in the InAppBrowser.
    • _blank: Opens in the InAppBrowser.
    • _system: Opens in the system's web browser.
  • options: Options for the InAppBrowser. Optional, defaulting to: location=yes. (String)

    The options string must not contain any blank space, and each feature's name/value pairs must be separated by a comma. Feature names are case insensitive.

    All platforms support:

    • location: Set to yes or no to turn the InAppBrowser's location bar on or off.

    Android supports these additional options:

    • hidden: set to yes to create the browser and load the page, but not show it. The loadstop event fires when loading is complete. Omit or set to no (default) to have the browser open and load normally.
    • clearcache: set to yes to have the browser's cookie cache cleared before the new window is opened
    • clearsessioncache: set to yes to have the session cookie cache cleared before the new window is opened
    • closebuttoncaption: set to a string to use as the close button's caption instead of a X. Note that you need to localize this value yourself.
    • closebuttoncolor: set to a valid hex color string, for example: #00ff00, and it will change the close button color from default, regardless of being a text or default X. Only has effect if user has location set to yes.
    • footer: set to yes to show a close button in the footer similar to the iOS Done button. The close button will appear the same as for the header hence use closebuttoncaption and closebuttoncolor to set its properties.
    • footercolor: set to a valid hex color string, for example #00ff00 or #CC00ff00 (#aarrggbb) , and it will change the footer color from default. Only has effect if user has footer set to yes.
    • hardwareback: set to yes to use the hardware back button to navigate backwards through the InAppBrowser's history. If there is no previous page, the InAppBrowser will close. The default value is yes, so you must set it to no if you want the back button to simply close the InAppBrowser.
    • hidenavigationbuttons: set to yes to hide the navigation buttons on the location toolbar, only has effect if user has location set to yes. The default value is no.
    • hideurlbar: set to yes to hide the url bar on the location toolbar, only has effect if user has location set to yes. The default value is no.
    • navigationbuttoncolor: set to a valid hex color string, for example: #00ff00, and it will change the color of both navigation buttons from default. Only has effect if user has location set to yes and not hidenavigationbuttons set to yes.
    • toolbarcolor: set to a valid hex color string, for example: #00ff00, and it will change the color the toolbar from default. Only has effect if user has location set to yes.
    • zoom: set to yes to show Android browser's zoom controls, set to no to hide them. Default value is yes.
    • mediaPlaybackRequiresUserAction: Set to yes to prevent HTML5 audio or video from autoplaying (defaults to no).
    • shouldPauseOnSuspend: Set to yes to make InAppBrowser WebView to pause/resume with the app to stop background audio (this may be required to avoid Google Play issues like described in CB-11013).
    • useWideViewPort: Sets whether the WebView should enable support for the "viewport" HTML meta tag or should use a wide viewport. When the value of the setting is no, the layout width is always set to the width of the WebView control in device-independent (CSS) pixels. When the value is yes and the page contains the viewport meta tag, the value of the width specified in the tag is used. If the page does not contain the tag or does not provide a width, then a wide viewport will be used. (defaults to yes).

    iOS supports these additional options:

    • hidden: set to yes to create the browser and load the page, but not show it. The loadstop event fires when loading is complete. Omit or set to no (default) to have the browser open and load normally.
    • clearcache: set to yes to have the browser's cookie cache cleared before the new window is opened
    • clearsessioncache: set to yes to have the session cookie cache cleared before the new window is opened
    • closebuttoncolor: set as a valid hex color string, for example: #00ff00, to change from the default Done button's color. Only applicable if toolbar is not disabled.
    • closebuttoncaption: set to a string to use as the Done button's caption. Note that you need to localize this value yourself.
    • disallowoverscroll: Set to yes or no (default is no). Turns on/off the UIWebViewBounce property.
    • hidenavigationbuttons: set to yes or no to turn the toolbar navigation buttons on or off (defaults to no). Only applicable if toolbar is not disabled.
    • navigationbuttoncolor: set as a valid hex color string, for example: #00ff00, to change from the default color. Only applicable if navigation buttons are visible.
    • toolbar: set to yes or no to turn the toolbar on or off for the InAppBrowser (defaults to yes)
    • toolbarcolor: set as a valid hex color string, for example: #00ff00, to change from the default color of the toolbar. Only applicable if toolbar is not disabled.
    • toolbartranslucent: set to yes or no to make the toolbar translucent(semi-transparent) (defaults to yes). Only applicable if toolbar is not disabled.
    • enableViewportScale: Set to yes or no to prevent viewport scaling through a meta tag (defaults to no).
    • mediaPlaybackRequiresUserAction: Set to yes to prevent HTML5 audio or video from autoplaying (defaults to no).
    • allowInlineMediaPlayback: Set to yes or no to allow in-line HTML5 media playback, displaying within the browser window rather than a device-specific playback interface. The HTML's video element must also include the webkit-playsinline attribute (defaults to no)
    • keyboardDisplayRequiresUserAction: Set to yes or no to open the keyboard when form elements receive focus via JavaScript's focus() call (defaults to yes).
    • suppressesIncrementalRendering: Set to yes or no to wait until all new view content is received before being rendered (defaults to no).
    • presentationstyle: Set to pagesheet, formsheet or fullscreen to set the presentation style (defaults to fullscreen).
    • transitionstyle: Set to fliphorizontal, crossdissolve or coververtical to set the transition style (defaults to coververtical).
    • toolbarposition: Set to top or bottom (default is bottom). Causes the toolbar to be at the top or bottom of the window.
    • hidespinner: Set to yes or no to change the visibility of the loading indicator (defaults to no).

Example:

inAppBrowser.open('https://flutter.io/', '_blank', 'location=yes,hideurlbar=yes');
inAppBrowser.open('https://www.google.com/', '_blank', 'location=yes,toolbarposition=top,disallowoverscroll=yes');

Events

Event fires when the InAppBrowser starts to load an url.

  void onLoadError(String url, String code, String message) {
    super.onLoadStop(url);
  }

Event fires when the InAppBrowser window is closed.

  @override
  void onExit() {
    super.onExit();
  }
