Windows 10 Creators Update, Visual Studio 2017 with Windows SDK,
WebView.Navigating handler does not being invoked for links which is marked to open in new tab, not able to prevent opening system browser.
Tested same code on Adnroid and it works fine.
This appears to be the default, native behavior in UWP as this also happened with a new non-Forms UWP app.
However the UWP WebView provides the NewWindowRequested event so you can override this behavior. You can use a custom UWP WebView renderer in order to access the event. Hope this helps!
Yes, that would be handy, thanks!
I'm still getting used to this per-platform extensions. Anyway, kinda weird to catch logic events by the view renderer.
I see this is marked as resolved... Wouldn't it be fixed? I know I can bypass this via Renderer, but shouldn't Xamarin Forms have same behavior on each platform by default?
