Subject [jira] [Resolved] (CB-6681) Android webview should use RelativeLayout
Date Tue, 13 May 2014 21:57:15 GMT


Joe Bowser resolved CB-6681.

    Resolution: Won't Fix

This is why CordovaWebView exists.  If people are manipulating layouts of the activity, they
should be implementing their own activity.

>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Android
>    Affects Versions: 3.5.0
>         Environment: android
>            Reporter: Lisa Seacat DeLuca
> This request is to change the Android webview element to use RelativeLayout instead of
LinearLayout.  Many users are starting to mix native and hybrid controls.  Linear Layout does
NOT allow the ability to put a native control "on top" of a web view, only before and/or after.
 In order to layer components we need the webview to be defined as a relative layout.
> An extended idea would be to allow a developer to choose which layout option they might
wish to use as a configuration step.  perhaps in the config.xml file.
