Ok, I think the correct documentation is here:


(note that pressing F1 in QC will give you the wrong doc)

I have a question on a note in the docs:

*Note: *Due to platform limitations overlapping the WebView 
<http://doc.qt.io/qt-5.4/qml-qtwebview-webview.html> and other QML 
components is not supported.

I guess the above means it cannot be in an Item?
Which means it cannot be in a StackView page, at least if there is 
anything else on the page besides the WebView, correct?
Can it be instantiated by Loader?
