Load WebView with ProgressDialog

It’s very useful to determine the status, while loading a webpage using WebView. So in this tutorial we will learn about the same. If you are already not familiar with the WebView then you can checkout our previous tutorial about WebView.

Here is our step by step tutorial-

1. Create a new project by going to File ⇒ New Android Project and fill required details:
    Project Name : WebViewWithProgressDialog
    Package : com.sunil.wvpd
    Main Activity :  Main.java
    Build Target : Android 2.2

2. Since we’re going to load a URL in the WebView widget, we have to make sure to request permission to access the Internet in AndroidManifest.xml. Open AndroidManifest.xml file and declare a uses-permission element just above <application> ... </application> element.

    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET"/>

3. Now open the Main.java file and add the following code:

package com.sunil.wvpd;

import android.app.Activity;
import android.app.ProgressDialog;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.Window;
import android.webkit.WebSettings;
import android.webkit.WebView;
import android.webkit.WebViewClient;

public class Main extends Activity {

    WebView mWeb;
    ProgressDialog mProgress;

    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        // Hide Titlebar
        // Set webview as main content only
        mWeb = new WebView(this);
        // set Javascript
        WebSettings settings = mWeb.getSettings();
       // the init state of progress dialog
        mProgress = ProgressDialog.show(this, "Loading", "Please wait for a moment...");

      // Add a WebViewClient, which actually handles loading data from web
        mWeb.setWebViewClient(new WebViewClient() {
        // Load the url
            public boolean shouldOverrideUrlLoading(WebView view, String url) {
                return true;

            // When finish loading page
            public void onPageFinished(WebView view, String url) {
                if(mProgress.isShowing()) {

        // Set url for webview to load

4. Finally run your project.
