How do I download a file from a website in a webviewer?

Ok, thank you. How can I make it with "allow file access".
Did you have a link for me where I can find help?

Thank you very much.

I believe there is a property called File access in the extension. As said, you might want to use the :mag: Search feature in this forum, we can't jam all methods in a topic as that would be tedious.

I have put the Custom Webview extension and download helper in my app.
But the app doesn´t start. Anywhere is a mistake.

Maybe you can inspect my app :wink:
Thanks a lot...

I have search everything but i doesn´t find an answer...

Here are my Blocks in English.

It looks like you did not initialize the custom webviewer correctly...

I thing the ApplyProgressChangedListener is wrong. The Block is from Webview. Is there a Block from custom web view? I found nothing.

But Downloads doesn´t work...

The block only works for App Inventor built-in WebViewers.

Yes, that´s the Problem. I need it for my canvas Loading Bar.
Because I want the download option I need the custom webviewer.
Hmmm, any idea?

Which is the block ApplyProgressChangedListener for Custom Webview?

If you already have CustomWebView then why are you using any other webview extension?

What i want;
Canva loading Bar
Download Files from Website
When back press notifier come

For Canva loading Bar i need the applyprogresschanged block. This i find only for webview.

So... If anybody can make it for me, that were great and i will pay for it.

Thanks from germany

CustomWebView already has that feature.
Why not look at some examples which you can easily find in the community?

I have delete the Block but the loading Bar doesn't Work.
I have read so much but i dont understand it. Can you Help me please and "repair" it and make the Features above.
Sorry for my Englisch.

Are you sure with the downloadDir?

I think it should be /Download.
