How to use MKWebview in swiftUI application to load a web page?

By | June 30, 2024

In SwiftUI there is not much options to load web page. We have to use UIKit component to load a page. For this purpose we need to use MKWebView and it is not a standard component in SwiftUI for loading web content. However, you can achieve this by using WKWebView in SwiftUI.

Here is a simple example of how you can use WKWebView in SwiftUI to load a web screen:

  1. First, make sure to import WebKit at the top of your SwiftUI file:
import WebKit

2. Create a UIViewRepresentable struct for WKWebView:

struct WebView: UIViewRepresentable {
    let urlString: String

    func makeUIView(context: Context) -> WKWebView {
        return WKWebView()

    func updateUIView(_ uiView: WKWebView, context: Context) {
        if let url = URL(string: urlString) {
            let request = URLRequest(url: url)

3. Use the WebView struct in your SwiftUI view:

struct ContentView: View {
    var body: some View {
        WebView(urlString: "your url here")

In this example, when you create an instance of `WebView` and pass a URL string to it, it will load and display the web screen at that URL.
