Android WebView will not scroll (Loading an embedded Google Calendar)

I am working on an app for my company. One of the buttons loads a webview of a google calendar. This works pretty well and all of my other webviews scroll appropriately. However when loading this calendar it resizes to the screen size and will not scroll. I tried setting the webview in a linear layout and making the height of the webview 4096px. This extends the calendar beyond the bottom of the screen, however it will not scroll. I am learning android as I go, I have some programming experience back when I was young and all command line.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <LinearLayout xmlns:android="" android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="4096px"> <WebView android:id="@+id/webview" android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="1020px"></WebView> </LinearLayout>

The code is

WebView calendar = (WebView) findViewById(; calendar.setBackgroundColor(0); calendar.setScrollBarStyle(3); calendar.getSettings().setJavaScriptEnabled(true); Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(), "Loading Events Calendar", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show(); calendar.loadUrl("");

Javascript is enabled for for the webview. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


The solution I found to this is to host the calendar on my website. With an embedded width and height defined by the webpage I was able to control the action of the calendar in the webview.

This does not let the calendar, in javascript, resize itself to the screen size, but instead forces a certain perspective. If you make the width of the calendar smaller than the screen size it will fill the width of the screen size. For example if I embed the calendar at a width of 300 it will resize to 480 on my droid. However if you embed the calendar with a width of say 600, it will not resize down.

Hope this helps someone else.
