Overview

This snippet demonstrates two ways of using TPositionInfoBase:

  • getting the TPosition class from TPositionInfoBase
  • showing TPosition in textual format


Note: The Location capability is included in the self-signing capabilities of S60 3rd Edition, Feature Pack 2 and newer platforms.

The following libraries and capabilities are required:
