Disable Zoom in x-ms-webview HTML Control (Win 8.1) with Javascript (not by css content) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    i've updated my project to Windows 8.1, now the IFrame doesn't support SSL anymore. I had to switch to the x-ms-webview. But now all the all the different URLs I navgate to are zoomable, etc.

    I have no access to the content within the Webview and everything I tried to apply CSS or intercept/prevent ms-touch-events by JS Events didn't work.

    How is it possible to get back the same functionality from my Windows 8 App in HTML/JS?

    Like just load a URL (HTTP) within a Container with no zooming, touch back events, etc?
    Hacks like loading the HTML and modify it won't work because of SessionState/Javascript/Ajax of the WebApps, etc.

    Link of same question on StackOverflow:


    Kind Regards,
