Location fron ipad with GPS?
I am trying to create a field that gets the GPS location from the built in GPS on the ipad.
Anyone have any thoughts?
If you go here:http://www.filemaker.com/support/product/documentation.html
And you download this PDF:FileMaker Pro 12 Functions Reference
You can read all about every possible function in Filemaker.
Two new functions in Filemaker Pro 12 are under the header "Mobile Functions" on pages 184 - 185.
The Functions are:- LocationReturns the current latitude and longitude on a device such as an iPad or iPhone that is runningFileMaker Go. The location is obtained via GPS, cellular network, or WiFi.- LocationValuesReturns the current latitude, longitude, and altitude on a device running FileMaker Go. Returns thehorizontal and vertical accuracy of the values returned and the number of minutes since the valueswere returned. The location is obtained via GPS, cellular network, or WiFi.
Now you can set these values using a script attached to a button with a scriptstep of "Set Field"
Take a look at the Contacts starter solution in FMP 12.
