    Is there an external plugin that allows for website content to be displayed inside of an AppBuilder web app?  From what I have read, AppBuilder does not have a webview.

    Hi Richard,

    By design AppBuilder hybrid applications are built on top of the Cordova framework and as such they run in webview on the devices. This said, I am not sure that I fully understand your question. Could you please elaborate a bit more on what do you mean by "AppBuilder does not have a webview"?

    Further, if you want to open a web page from within your AppBuilder application, you can directly use the InAppBrowser plugin and show it in the application's, the system browser's or the InAppBrowser's webview. If this is the case, I would suggest you to check the InAppBrowser sample and the plugin's documentation.

    I hope this helps.


    Visit the Telerik Verified Plugins Marketplace and get the custom Cordova plugin you need, already tweaked to work seamlessly with AppBuilder.

    The InAppBrowser plugin was exactly what I needed and worked as expected.  I can view pages from an external website within the phone app, instead of viewing in the phone browser.  Thank you.
