WebView is not clearing history.

 Hi, guys.

I'm using the following code:


to ensure that nothing is left in the history and back button behaves
as usual.

Unfortunately, this code doesn't work for me and the
_articleView.canGoBack() still returns true.
Implementation of clearHistory method is quite complex and uses
asynchronous mechanism, which may not work immediately, but no matter
how much time I wait the history is still there.

Am I doing something wrong?

Thank you in advance!

 Hi, guys.

Sorry for bringing this up again, but it looks like it's a bug in the
WebView, which really hurts my project...
I found that it happens on the HTML pages with images. Pages without
images clear history as they're supposed to.
Might this be a synchronization issue?

I would really appreciate if somebody could clarify the situation and
maybe point me to a workaround...

Thank you in advance!

1. Open input method automatically on showing Dialog


I wanted to open input method automatically on showing Dialog, in my
Application. I created the dialog from layout xml and i have tried the

1. Added android:windowSoftInputMode="stateAlwaysVisible|adjustResize"
in the dialog's layout XML
2.  tried using InputMethodManager API.


Both the approaches is not working. I seen the same behaviour for
preferences dialog well.

Is there any way to handle this?
