WebView as a pivot item, swiping not working - Windows phone 8.1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm creating a pivot page with a few items.
    One of those items is a WebView.
    Swiping doesn't work on the WebView Item.
    Any Workaround?

    This is a Windows Phone 8.1 project

  • This limitation is documented in the WebView docs at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/windows.ui.xaml.controls.webview.aspx

    Windows Phone 8.1

    • WebView on Windows Phone 8.1 is not compatible with parent controls that require gestures to propagate up from the  WebView control to the parent, such as FlipView, ScrollViewer class, and other related controls.

  • I had a similar problem in a windows phone 8.1 app, but because I didnt need to user to interact with the webview i gust put a transperant grid on top and it works.
