Geolocation

  • Hi there,

    I am wanting to find out how it would be possible to get hold of the users Longitude and Latitude values on click of a button in my telerik application.

    Has anyone tried this? I don't need to use the map, I just need to store the values. 

    TIA

  • I have hacked it together in a Cordova project. Cordova has geolocation built in. More information here:

    cordova.apache.org/.../geolocation.getCurrentPosition.html

    Although I am sure others might have a better answer.

    HTH

    UPDATE: In fact, a little better Googling by me shows up this: http://docs.telerik.com/platform/samples/sample-geolocation/

  • Hello,

    The link to the Telerik doc mentioned above is probably the best way to go about.

    Just in case this is useful for your development, I thought you would like to know that support for geolocation is now also built into web browsers:

       caniuse.com/

       http://html5demos.com/geo

    The cordoba-plugin-geolocation plugin has the following note:

    "This API is based on the W3C Geolocation API Specification, and only executes on devices that don't already provide an implementation."

    I hope this helps.
