Syntax
WINDEVUniversal Windows 10 App

Retrieving information about a device (mobile, ...) Hide the details

<Result> = GPSGetPosition([<Timeout> [, <Message>]])
<Result>: geoPosition variable
geoPosition variable containing information about the device position. If the position is invalid, the ErrorOccurred variable is set to True and the error details are returned by ErrorInfo.
<Timeout>: Optional integer or optional Duration
Maximum timeout (in hundredths of a second) for updating the device position.
  • An error occurs if the timeout ends before the position of the device is updated. This error can be detected by the ErrorOccurred variable and the error details can be returned by ErrorInfo.
  • If this parameter is not specified, the timeout is set to 1 minute.
Remark: This parameter can correspond to:
  • an integer corresponding to the number of hundredths of a second,
  • a Duration variable,
  • Versions 23 and later
    the duration in a readable format (e.g., 1 s or 10 ms).
    New in version 23
    the duration in a readable format (e.g., 1 s or 10 ms).
    the duration in a readable format (e.g., 1 s or 10 ms).
<Message>: Optional character string (with quotes)
Message of hourglass displayed when updating the position.
Remark: This parameter is taken into account only if the call is performed in the main application thread.
WINDEVUniversal Windows 10 App This parameter is ignored.
Remarks

Managing locks

GPSGetPosition blocks execution until the current device location is retrieved or until the timeout defined by the <Timeout> parameter expires.
If the function is called in the main thread of the application, an hourglass will be displayed during the function execution. The message displayed by the hourglass can be specified via the <Message> parameter.
Otherwise, the execution of secondary thread will be locked during the function execution and no hourglass will be displayed.
Remark: To find out the last known device position without timeout, use GPSLastPosition. Caution, the positioning information that was retrieved may not correspond to the current device position if the device was moved while the GPS signal was not valid for example. To find out the date and time at which the position was calculated, use the ..MeasurementDate property of the geoPosition variable.

  • To determine if a value was assigned to the Speed, Accuracy, Direction or Altitude properties of a geoPosition variable when the location was retrieved, use the SpeedValid, AccuracyValid, DirectionValid and AltitudeValid properties.
  • To reinitialize a geoPosition variable, use VariableReset.
  • The positioning information that was retrieved corresponds to the last known device position: therefore, they may not correspond to the current device position if the device was moved while the GPS signal was not valid for example. You can use the MeasurementDate property of the geoPosition variable to determine the date and time at which the position was calculated.
  • Speed, Accuracy, Direction and Altitude will be specified only if the location provider allows it (otherwise, these properties will take their default value).
