Bing maps connection

Hi,

Can someone elaborate on how to use BingMaps.GetLocationByPoint to return full address?

Because i tried doing that but it's giving me an error: the property expects text value but this rule returns incompatible record values.

The GetLocationByPoint function returns an object (record) with many properties. If you want the atual address, try accessing the "address.formattedAddress" property:

Label1.Text: BingMaps.GetLocationByPoint(Location.Latitude, Location.Longitude).address.formattedAddress

 By the way, when I find a new connector that I haven't used before, if I cannot find its documentation online, I use the following technique to understand the "schema" of the return object of the connector: add a button to any screen, and set its OnSelect formula to store the result in a collection:

ClearCollect(c, BingMaps.GetLocationByPoint(Location.Latitude, Location.Longitude))

After clicking the button, the result will be in a collection, which you can then use the collection viewer (in the "View" tab) to see what the shape of the returned data looks like.

HI @CarlosFigueira,

 

Thanks a lot for that reply. That schema thing was a geat help. 

But i am still getting an error: unable to parse response JObject.

I had an app that I created several months ago that used to work fine for getting the Latitude & Longitude using BingMaps.GetLocationByAddress.  It has since stopped working and when users try to use the app they are prompted for a Bing Maps login and asked for an API key...  Is there somewhere to store this information in the app so they can use it?

I wonder if my reply will still be relevant.
But you’ll need to retrieve an API key from the Bings Map Dev Center (Microsoft-account required).

The API key should be entered in the PowerApps Data Sources menu.
