    GPS location Widget

    Asked by PanicLifeAssist on October 14, 2014 at 06:11 AM

    Hi there I am using the Gps location widget and the submit button to send your location once pressed to send the location. However this works on the preview and webmatrix but not on the apk android file when I convert the Html archive to apk through Andromo. Please assist on how to get this function running on my apk android app.

    Just to confirm that you are pertaining to the Allow/Deny button when you first load the form? This doesn't show on android phone when form is viewed is that correct? Can you please tell us the browser type and version you are currently using.

    I was testing this on android and was able to see the button to send your location. I'm using chrome version 38. Please see the image below.

    Hi there,

    I am talking about an apk file for android that would not use a brower. The apk file uses html and javascript and external access.

    Hi PanicLifeAssist,

    To confirm, you are building an application that would be downloaded directly to an android device and not a browser based application?

    If that is the case, that would have to be built into the application itself and that access would be granted once the persons agrees to the permissions when downloading the application.

    You can get more information on accessing locations using an app at this link: https://developer.android.com/training/location/index.html 

    I hope this helps. Please inform us if you need further assistance.

    Hi there it Is an android app that I use html archive (html,css, javscript etc). I do not use the java language. I basically want that send location button to work on the android app as this contains the html archive to run the app. I basically just took the javascript coding and it somehow didn’t work on the app. I see there are other methods to embed the code if that wo0uld help. Also I know the localhost page of the app that the button will be.

    Hi,

    At the moment, it is not really clear which part you need assistance with the GPS Location widget base on your original question.

    Please reiterate the details so we can provide you with the appropriate response and suggestion.

    Thanks.
