Angry File Upload Button does nto work in a Webview

I need to be able to open a file upload menu from AndroidAddMember.aspx page in a web view. I found this fix but I dont think im implementing it correctly.

m0s' programming adventure: File upload in through WebView on Android

The file upload button works fine in a browser on phone and pc but once in a web view the button does not work.
I embed the page with the button in my first case statement below.
Do i need to set the web view differently in that case statement to get the code above it to work? I wrapped the new code in these brackets //+++++++++++++++++++++

Any help would be great. Thanks
//+++++++++++ New Code to fix the button issue+++++++++++++++
WebView wv;
private ValueCallback<Uri> mUploadMessage;
private final static int FILECHOOSER_RESULTCODE=1;
protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode,
Intent intent) {
if (null == mUploadMessage) return;
Uri result = intent == null || resultCode != RESULT_OK ? null
: intent.getData();
mUploadMessage = null;


public void onCreate1(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

wv = new WebView(this);
wv.setWebViewClient(new WebViewClient());
wv.setWebChromeClient(new WebChromeClient()
//The undocumented magic method override
//Eclipse will swear at you if you try to put @Override here
public void openFileChooser(ValueCallback<Uri> uploadMsg) {

mUploadMessage = uploadMsg;
Intent i = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_GET_CONTENT);
MyGreatActivity.this.startActivityForResult(Intent .createChooser(i,"File Chooser"), FILECHOOSER_RESULTCODE);



//++++++++++++++ End of new code to fix the button issue +++++++++++++++++++++
public boolean onOptionsItemSelected(MenuItem item) {
// Handle item selection
switch (item.getItemId()) {
case R.id.register:
mWebView2 = (WebView) findViewById(R.id.webview);
mWebView2.getSettings().setJavaScriptEnabled(true) ;
mWebView2.setWebViewClient(new HelloWebViewClient());
return true;
case R.id.ratewomen:
mWebView3 = (WebView) findViewById(R.id.webview);
mWebView3.getSettings().setJavaScriptEnabled(true) ;
mWebView3.setWebViewClient(new HelloWebViewClient());
return true;
case R.id.ratemen:
mWebView4 = (WebView) findViewById(R.id.webview);
mWebView4.getSettings().setJavaScriptEnabled(true) ;
mWebView4.setWebViewClient(new HelloWebViewClient());
return true;
return super.onOptionsItemSelected(item);
