Archived:Obtaining location information in Flash Lite

Archived.pngArchived: This article is archived because it is not considered relevant for third-party developers creating commercial solutions today. If you think this article is still relevant, let us know by adding the template {{ReviewForRemovalFromArchive|user=~~~~|write your reason here}}.

We do not recommend Flash Lite development on current Nokia devices, and all Flash Lite articles on this wiki have been archived. Flash Lite has been removed from all Nokia Asha and recent Series 40 devices and has limited support on Symbian. Specific information for Nokia Belle is available in Flash Lite on Nokia Browser for Symbian. Specific information for OLD Series 40 and Symbian devices is available in the Flash Lite Developers Library.

This code snippet demonstrates how to discover the location (latitude and longitude) of the device using the Location Platform Service for Flash Lite supported from S60 5th Edition onwards.

Note.pngNote: To get the location data the device's GPS needs to be active.


// Import Platform Service Interface
// Heading of the application
heading_txt.text = "Location Information";
// Create new Service object which has location information
var location = new Service("Service.Location", "ILocation");
// Define input parameters
var inParams = {LocationInformationClass:"GenericLocationInfo"};
// Define result value
var outParams = location.GetLocation(inParams);
// Check if getting the location information was successful
if (outParams.ErrorCode == 0) {
// If no errors get Location information (longitude and latitude)
var outList = outParams.ReturnValue;
var longitude = outList.Longitude; // Contains longitudinal data.
var latitude = outList.Latitude; // Contains latitudinal data.
text_txt.text = "Longitude: "+longitude+"\rLatitude: "+latitude;
} else {
var errorId = outParam.ErrorCode;
text_txt.text = "Error: "+errorId;

Note.pngNote: This example code illustrates how to retrieve details of the specific location information using GetLocation() synchronously.


The current location (longitude and latitude) of the device is displayed.

Example application

The following sample application has been tested in the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic (S60 5th Edition, Flash Lite 3.0): File:FlashLite Finding
