Android Question WebView background color

Is there a way to change the background color of a WebView?

I use a WebView to take advantage of HTML text formatting to display help, multi-line text, etc. My panel is black and the WebView background is white. During the brief time while the WebView HTML code is being processed, the Webview "flashes" white until the code is processed and the background is set to black.

I've tried setting the view visibility to false and set it to true in WebView1_PageFinished but it appears that event fires when the page is loaded. Not when it has finished processing.

Have you tried
B4X:
Private web As Webview

...

web.color = Colors.ARGB(0, 0, 0, 0)

I found the answer once I posted the question and the listing of similar threads came up (my initial search criteria must not have been good enough).

B4X:
WebView1.Color = Colors.Black
