Is there a way where I can listen to the changes in the webview or even the external browser's URL address changes from a .Net MAUI app? I want to get the URL address that the user is on with their permission of course. This will give them the functionality I am providing to the user, which that's why they have downloaded my app for that usuage. Can anybody help me with this? Thanks in advance....

    Hello,

    Is there a way where I can listen to the changes in the webview or even the external browser's URL address changes from a .Net MAUI app?

    In MAUI you could use the API to listen for URL changes in the WebView, while for external browsers, you are not authorized to listen.

    You could refer to the following official documentation with a simple example:

    <WebView WidthRequest="500" HeightRequest="1000" Source="https://www.bing.com" Navigating="WebView_Navigating"/>
    
    private void WebView_Navigating(object sender, WebNavigatingEventArgs e)
    {
        if (e.Url.Contains("bing"))
        {
            Console.WriteLine("Bing is Navigating");
        }
    }
    

    Best Regards,

    Alec Liu.
