Re: Cascades Webview with reader mode?
I've seen snippets of code that remove the chrome from the window but that isn't the same with the text capabilites etc.

Thunderbuck is correct, "reader" mode is not a property of the WebView, but something they implemented on top of it in the browser. You'd have to reproduce it from scratch...

As I say, invoke the browser as a card and it would appear to the user to be within the app. Don't know for sure that it would bring Reader Mode, but I believe all browser features come over with the card.
I've got my own browser invocation issue I'm struggling with, but I'll try this out to confirm.

I've never seen a way to invoke the Browser as a card.

EDIT: just to add to that, it looks like the reason you can't invoke the browser as a card is that the browser does not EXPOSE a card to invoke. If anyone's writing an alternate browser, this could be an interesting opportunity...

Wonder what the chances are of RIM opening up some of the source for the BB10 browser? You could just lift the reader code if they were to do that. Actually, since the entire browser front end if HTML/CSS/JS anyway, maybe you could just pull the source code right out of the OS files...

As it stands now, I'm just thrilled I finally got WebView working on a sheet so I can build my little newsreader thingie I've been working on. Refining it into Reader View might be a subsequent step.
