loadData method Null safety

Future<void> loadData(
  1. {required String data,
  2. String mimeType = "text/html",
  3. String encoding = "utf8",
  4. Uri? baseUrl,
  5. Uri? androidHistoryUrl,
  6. Uri? iosAllowingReadAccessTo}

Loads the given data into this WebView, using baseUrl as the base URL for the content.

  • mimeType parameter specifies the format of the data. The default value is "text/html".
  • encoding parameter specifies the encoding of the data. The default value is "utf8".
  • androidHistoryUrl parameter is the URL to use as the history entry. The default value is about:blank. If non-null, this must be a valid URL. This parameter is used only on Android.
  • iosAllowingReadAccessTo, used in combination with baseUrl (using the file:// scheme), is an iOS-specific argument that represents the URL from which to read the web content. This baseUrl must be a file-based URL (using the file:// scheme). Specify the same value as the baseUrl parameter to prevent WebView from reading any other content. Specify a directory to give WebView permission to read additional files in the specified directory.
