Hi @johnjohn123,

Do you want to get the GPS coordinates for each submitter?

Could you please tell me that if you want to save this coordinates data in your data source?

Generally, the GPS coordinates would not display like a pop-up message, it usually display as a text string in the screen which could not be affected by user interaction. It just displays in a Label or TextInput control.

If you want to save it, you should create 2 fields to store the coordinates value, just add the corresponding field to your form, and set the Default property of the Text Input as below:

"lat:" &Location.Latitude& "," & "lng:"&Location.Longitude

Once you submit form, the coordinates values could be saved to your SQL table as well.

If you do not want to save it into your SQL table, you just need a Label or a Text Input and set the formula as above to display the  GPS coordinates.

Hope it could help you.

Best Regards,
Qi

@Nogueira1306Thanks for the help ...so this will show a popup on the user browser to allow getting the current location,, is this correct?

Yes sir

@Nogueira1306  so is there a way to always get the coordinations even if the user disable or reject the popup?

Nope... That is like the camera control, for example

@Nogueira1306  ok make sense
