    I have had a program working fine for a couple of years but parts of the code does not seem to work under lollipop 5.0. The following code has always worked in previous android versions but does not seem to execute in lollipop

    Javascript="B4A.CallSub('WebView1_SaveWebPage', true, '"&WebView1.Url&"', document.documentElement.outerHTML)"
    WebViewExtras1.executeJavascript(WebView1, Javascript)

    Anyone any suggestions? The WebView1_SaveWebPage function does not get called but always worked before android 5.0

    DISREGARD - issue is now closed 30/04/2015

    Does this work on Kitkat?
    The major changes to the WebView were introduced in Kitkat so i'd expect problems with Kitkat too.

    Do you see anything in the unfiltered log - anything relevant?

    Works fine in kitkat. Haven't looked at any logs yet. No errors get reported, it just doesn't appear to execute this code any more.

    Close the thread. No longer an issue.
