I am creating a very simple WebView app with a few useful links and I want the initial focus to be on the app bar with easy access to the menu. This works if I add focusable attributes to the layout in main.xml
However I’m unable to navigate away from the app bar to the WebView content below unless I add requestFocus to the menu actions:
case R.id.url: webView.loadUrl("https://example.com"); webView.requestFocus();
Then I can navigate down to the WebView content below, but as soon as I return to the app bar navigation is lost again. How can I freely navigate away from the app bar?
So I added the following code to main.xml and it solves my issue
