But I dont actually want a webview to be seen or used as part of the UI. So can I just create an instance of it right before calling the method above in some way.
I have tried:
UIWebView *webView = [[UIWebView alloc]initWithFrame:CGRectZero];
[webView loadRequest:[NSUrLRequest requestWithUrl:url]];
but nothing seems to happen. So is there a method similar to the above that I am meant to use.
