WebView: Load file from file.DirInternal

Hi all,

Loading from the assets directory works OK

WebView1.LoadUrl("file:///android_asset/help.html"

but how can I load a file from the .DirInternal?

Is there a way to structure a file path so as to use LoadUrl for a file in DirInternal?
The problem with loading html as text seems to be that relative links do not work.

e.g. if you have a file called "help.html" in DirInternal and a file called "help.css" also in DirInternal then "help.html" does not see the "help.css" file, presumably because it is loaded without knowing its own file path.

Can you try something like this:

B4X:
WebView1.LoadUrl(File.Combine(File.DirInternal, "my_webpage.html"))

Thanks Martin but that didn't work.
This is what does:

B4X:
web.LoadUrl("file:///" & File.DirInternal & "/page.html")

Both 2 slashes & 3 slashes works in my tests.
I haven't checked but I assume File.Combine returns a path starting with a slash, so that provides the third.
