First initialize the extension using WebView_Init() in your game or room start event.  Only need to call it once.  Then create a new object and place it in your room.  You can then call WebView_Create() to embed a new webview object onto your app.  You have to enter the exact position on the screen in pixels of where to position it.  The size is dependent on your app’s room scaling on the phone.  If the room is scaled up double then you will have to double up the size of the webview to, have a little play and you will know what size to use.  Im not expert on screen resolution so if you have issues with sizing and positioning please ask on the Game Maker forums.

Once the webview is embedded it will remain active and open even when you change rooms.  So you will have to use the WebView_Hide() or WebView_Destroy() when you dont want the Webview to be visible on screen.  Once created you can also change the URL, set new HTML, navigate back / forward (these are not working on all devices at the moment), get the page title.  Once you have created or changed the URL use WebView_IsLoaded() function in an alarm or timer event to execute the next code after page is loaded.

New Functions v1.7:

WebView_Navigate(“back/forward/home”) 
WebView_GetHome() returns a string containing the URL of the Home URL set
