    Get GPS Coordinates ?



      Get GPS Coordinates ?


      Is there a Get function that will get the GPS coordinates of a current location? 

      I see that there have been many requests for this a few years back, but I am wondering if FM has included this in the new versions.

      I want to be able to Get the GPS coordinates of my current location and place them in a field. 

      How can I do this?


      Any help here would be greatly  appreciated.

      I have FMPro Advanced 11.0 v3
      OS - Windows Vista on desktop, Windows 7 on laptop

          Are you able to pull up the GPS Coordinates in a web viewer? That may be sufficient and you can also use GetLayoutObjectAttribute with the "content" parameter to "scrape" the data from the viewer. It takes some work with text fuctions to extract the data from all the other web content, but it should be possible to do.
