Android Webview - Webpage should fit the device screen


Question

I have tried the following to fit the webpage based on the device screen size.

mWebview.setInitialScale(30);

and then set the metadata viewport

<meta name="viewport" content="width=320, initial-scale=1.0, maximum-scale=1.0, user-scalable=no" />
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width; initial-scale=1.0; maximum-scale=1.0; minimum-scale=1.0; user-scalable=0;"/>
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, target-densityDpi=medium-dpi"/>

But nothing works, webpage is not fixed to the device screen size.

Can anyone tell me how to get this?

Accepted Answer

You have to calculate the scale that you need to use manually, rather than setting to 30.

private int getScale(){
    Display display = ((WindowManager) getSystemService(Context.WINDOW_SERVICE)).getDefaultDisplay(); 
    int width = display.getWidth(); 
    Double val = new Double(width)/new Double(PIC_WIDTH);
    val = val * 100d;
    return val.intValue();
}

Then use

WebView web = new WebView(this);
web.setPadding(0, 0, 0, 0);
web.setInitialScale(getScale());

You can use this

    WebView browser = (WebView) findViewById(R.id.webview);
    browser.getSettings().setLoadWithOverviewMode(true);
    browser.getSettings().setUseWideViewPort(true);

this fixes size based on screen size.
