Overview

This code snippet demonstrates how to track changes in the current location by using the Location Service API of the Web Runtime (WRT).

<td id="longitudeData"></td>
</tr>
</table>
</div>
<input type="button" value="Start tracking"
onclick="startTracking();" />
</div>
</body>
</html>

Source: script.js

var serviceObj = null;
var criteria = null;
 
window.onload = init;
 
// Initializes the widget
function init() {
// Obtain the Location service object
try {
serviceObj = device.getServiceObject("Service.Location", "ILocation");
} catch (ex) {
alert("Service object cannot be found.");
return;
}
 
// Initialize the criteria for the service object
criteria = new Object();
criteria.LocationInformationClass = "BasicLocationInformation";
}
 
// Starts the tracking
function startTracking() {
if (serviceObj == null) {
alert("Service object has not been initialized.");
return;
}
 
try {
// Define the callback function for tracking the location
var result = serviceObj.ILocation.Trace(criteria, locationDataReady);
} catch (ex) {
alert(ex);
}
}
 
// Called when Trace has got data
function locationDataReady(transId, eventCode, result) {
// On error situation, display the error message
if (eventCode == 4) {
alert("Error " + result.ErrorCode + ": " + result.ErrorMessage);
return;
}
 
var latitude = result.ReturnValue.Latitude;
displayData("latitudeData", latitude.toFixed(4) + " \u00B0");
 
var longitude = result.ReturnValue.Longitude;
displayData("longitudeData", longitude.toFixed(4) + " \u00B0");
}
 
// Displays the data in an HTML element
function displayData(elementId, data) {
var element = document.getElementById(elementId);
 
// Remove the first child node, if it's not null
if (element.firstChild != null) {
element.removeChild(element.firstChild);
}
 
element.appendChild(document.createTextNode(data));
}

Postconditions
