UWP WebView Save WebNotifications and Allow Downloads RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,

    I have two issues at this stage with the WebView Control in my UWP App.

    Issue no.1:

    I'm using WebView to access WhatsApp Web, and there a user gets prompted to turn on Notifications, but the Prompt never comes up. If I use args.PermissionRequest.Allow() it just allows without a prompt... How do I prompt a user to Allow or Deny WebNotifications, and then save that permission state to never ask again when my app is restarted? args.PermissionRequest.Defer() doesn't do anything. I would've thought that setting User Notification Listener in Capabilities would've done the trick.

    Issue no.2:

    In WhatsApp Web there is an option to download a shared file (photo, pdf, etc) locally. The problem is that the Download/Save As Dialog never shows.

    Any help on this would be much appreciated.

    Thanx in advance.

  • Hi DogFoxX,

    Thank you for posting here.

    Since this thread is related to UWP, so I suggest that you can ask this question in Microsoft Q&A.

    The Visual C# forum discusses and asks questions about the C# programming language, IDE, libraries, samples, and tools.

  • Okay, thanx I will do just that.

    Sorry about that, and I was quite confused where to open my thread as I saw no option for UWP.

    Now I know where ask questions about C#.
