Geolocation widget


This widget takes your device's current location from HTML5 Geolocation. It will save the coordinates in the columns that are tied to controls with the names "Latitude" and "Longitude". These can be hidden.

  • Creator: Amberlyn Schjoll & JP Fortier
  • Type: Control Widget
  • Parameters:
    • RefreshRate (in milliseconds): the widget default is set to -1 (Disabled). The record will not change/save until the system recognizes a change in location by comparing the table record vs your current location.
      • Example: RefreshRate=5000 will check your location every 5 seconds. When a change is determined the record will be changed.
