Followed previous posts to set up a label (coords_Label13) that showed Latitude and Logitude using the Location function.
I created a column in SharePoint called it Site_Coords (set its properties to multiline) and set both its default and update to be the cords_label13.text .
From the app all goes well and on upload the column populates with a blob like:
ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm how do I just get -37.7085952,176.1476608 to save and show?
I expect that as the phone moves so will the GPS coordinates until such time as it is uploaded. Is it possible to take a snap shot of the Location and not have it chnaging until upload?
[I do have a column called GeoLocation but it does not show in the data source - edit fields on the form in edit mode even with data source refreshed - it doesnt show)]
Hi @Wapfunz ,
Please consider to reference this:
I followed that link and post to actually create the card I use.
What I get is per attached.
Yes the coordinates are saved and when displayed in edit mode or Detail the result is as per photo.
What would be nice is to have the leading and trailing superfluos syntax removed leaving only the cordinates.
<div class="ExternalClass350ACCB153584307A57EB44166CCA53A">-36.8672768, 174.764032</DIV>
is this possible as following that pearticular post returned what I have.
Are you still having this issue?
Have you considered using PlainText on the results? That will remove the Html and return just the inner value.
I hope that helps.
