Is there anyways to use IE 8.1 reading view from WebView RRS feed

  • Question

  • I would like to open web urls inside a webview in my app and use IE 8.1's reading view. To display a reading view version inside the webview.

    Is this possible?

    Thanks,

    Knic

  • Not that I'm aware of, but you can check on the IE forum.

    Even if there were, it would only work if the user had selected IE as the default browser and couldn't be depended upon by an app.

  • You'd need to implement this yourself. Reading view is part of the IE app, not the rendering engine.

  • Thanks for the answer, is there a way to externally launch a webpage in this mode? Send the link to IE and have IE automatically open the link in reading mode?
