The app I’m working on is a search engine where the search results are rendered in a react-native
WebView. When someone clicks a link in the search result page, I intercept it via
onNavigationStateChange and open the result page in a modal using
This works well, except when you close the modal, the underlying WebView reloads (I’m guessing it got unloaded from the DOM). Is there a way to preserve the state and scroll position of the WebView underneath while the WebBrowser is loaded up?
Update: this seems to happen to me on an iPhone X, but when I use an Android phone to reproduce, the WebView underneath does seem to preserve position.
Update 2: For comparison, I implemented a simple webview + modal as a workaround and that worked fine, so there is something about WebBrowser that interferes with the state of other WebViews
