PART THREE ARTICLE

Let get started

We're still using the flutter_inappwebview package, so just create another dart file for example 4, you can name it WebExampleFour.

The example is pretty straightforward, we just need some methods and parameters just like the code below

import 'package:flutter_inappwebview/flutter_inappwebview.dart';

class WebExampleFour extends ChromeSafariBrowser {

  @override
  void onOpened() {}

  @override
  void onCompletedInitialLoad() {}

  @override
  void onClosed() {}
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

And don't forget to import the flutter_appwebview library

import 'package:flutter_inappwebview/flutter_inappwebview.dart';
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

And that's all for the WebExampleFour page you can now move to the homepage.dart file or any page you want your user to click the button to navigate to the WebExampleFour page.

So on the homepage, we just have to declare a final variable for WebExampleFour and that's all

final WebExampleFour inAppChrome = WebExampleFour();
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Then, on button pressed

              MaterialButton(
                onPressed: () {
                  inAppChrome.open(
                          url: 'https://obounce.net',
                          options: ChromeSafariBrowserClassOptions(
                              android: AndroidChromeCustomTabsOptions(),
                              ios: IOSSafariOptions()));
                },
                child: Text(
                  'Example 4',
                  style: TextStyle(color: Colors.white),
                ),
                color: Colors.pink[900],
                padding: EdgeInsets.symmetric(horizontal: 70, vertical: 12),
              ),
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

And that's all the major stuff you need to know πŸ‘Œ, For more explanation kindly check the video tutorial.
