How to Copy a Webview Link in Android Java

Here is how to Copy current web address url in Android Java

With the simple java code below, you can copy a link of current loaded website address in a webview. The url will be saved to your Android clipboard, then you can paste the link address wherever you want.

With a little modification of this code we can copy other texts too,we just need define a source in the string. But here we will only copy the current web address.

How this code works?

First, we identity the webview by its id, remember to replace this id with your own webview id, then we create a string, and the string resource is set to the webview address.

We call the clipboard manager and then executes the copy command,which copies the current web address to clipboard.

It will show a toast after copying the address.
