webView - White page when page certificate is missing

    Question

  • Hi,

    I want to access this page in a Windows 8.1 App, using WebView;

    This Site

    BUT, on the load, it shows a blank page. Instead of the certificate error message etc etc. Check it out!

    Anything I can do to fix this clientwise?

    -Vincent

  • Hi Vincent,

    Based on my knowledge, this should be the limitation of WebView control. You should understand that the WebView control is not intended to be used to create a complete web experience. It just intended to provide some basic HTML rendering and to allow application developers to leverage some existing HTML resources within a XAML based app.

    You will need to find another way to work around.

  • Hi Vincent,

    >> would it be possible to make a host to RT from WinForms etc. Like Winforms -> WPF

    As I know, this is impossible. WinForm and WPF are based on CLR, but metro app is based on Windows runtime.

    If you want to ask more features in WebView control, you can send your request on UserVoice.

  • Ah I see.

    As this is supported in the WPF and WinForms browser controls, would it be possible to make a host to RT from WinForms etc. Like Winforms -> WPF
