No matter what I try, I cannot get WebView to display a local HTML file on Windows / WinRT. It works for Android, iOS and WinPhone, but not for Windows.
I have asked for help on this on both the forums and by email direct to support, but with no useful response. Makes me think that I may be the first person to try this, or alternatively, others have tried but also without success. I am not 100% certain that this is a bug, but as per instruction from support, am raising it as a bug for Xamarin to investigate.
Per the documentation viewable here:
It is stated that local HTML files do not work with WebView on 8.1, but do on 8.0. For the moment I will set this to confirmed, although it would be considered an enhancement.
Thank you for taking the time to submit this feature request. We like this idea and have added it to our internal feature tracking system.
Xamarin Forms Team
I have checked this issue with Xamarin.Forms 2.3.2-pre1 and observed that local HTML files works fine with WebView on 8.1
To verify this issue I have used forms sample "WorkingWithWebview".
Hence closing this issue.
