Location Property

Applies to TestComplete 14.91, last modified on July 20, 2021
The information below concerns legacy mobile tests that work with mobile devices connected to the local computer. For new mobile tests, we recommend using the newer cloud-compatible approach.

Description

Returns the object that provides information about the current location of the mobile device. See Geolocation Testing (Legacy).

Declaration

AndroidGPSObj.Location

Read-Only Property Object
AndroidGPSObj An expression, variable or parameter that specifies a reference to an AndroidGPS object

Applies To

The property is applied to the following object:

Property Value

The AndroidGPSData object whose properties describe the current location of the mobile device.

Remarks

The returned object may contain data about the actual / physical location of the device, or about the so-called mock location - a fictitious location used for debugging purposes. You can specify mock location data using the SetLocation method.

Example

The code below retrieves location data from the Android device's GPS sensor, posts them to the test log and shows the location in Google Maps:

JavaScript, JScript

function PostGPSLocation()
{
  Mobile.SetCurrent("Nexus 7");
  // Enable GPS
  Mobile.Device().GPS.GPSEnabled = true;
  // Obtain location data
  var Longt = Mobile.Device().GPS.Location.Longitude;
  var Lat = Mobile.Device().GPS.Location.Latitude;
  // Output the location data
  Log.Message("The device location is:");
  Log.Message("Longitude: " + aqConvert.VarToStr(Longt));
  Log.Message("Latitude: " + aqConvert.VarToStr(Lat));
  Log.Message("Altitude: " + aqConvert.VarToStr(Mobile.Device().GPS.Location.Altitude));
  Log.Message("Accuracy: " + aqConvert.VarToStr(Mobile.Device().GPS.Location.Accuracy));
  // Open Google Maps in the browser and pass the coordinates as URL parameters
  Browsers.Item(Browsers.btIExplorer).Run("http://maps.google.com/maps?q=loc:" + aqConvert.VarToStr(Lat) + "," + aqConvert.VarToStr(Longt));
}

Python

def PostGPSLocation():
  Mobile.SetCurrent("Nexus 7")
  # Enable GPS
  Mobile.Device().GPS.GPSEnabled = True
  # Obtain location data
  Longt = Mobile.Device().GPS.Location.Longitude
  Lat = Mobile.Device().GPS.Location.Latitude
  # Output the location data
  Log.Message("The device location is:")
  Log.Message("Longitude: " + IntToStr(Longt))
  Log.Message("Latitude: " + IntToStr(Lat))
  Log.Message("Altitude: " + VarToStr(Mobile.Device().GPS.Location.Altitude))
  Log.Message("Accuracy: "+ VarToStr(Mobile.Device().GPS.Location.Accuracy))
  # Open Google Maps in the browser and pass the coordinates as URL parameters
  Browsers.Item[Browsers.btIExplorer].Run("http://maps.google.com/maps?q=loc:" + IntToStr(Lat) + "," + IntToStr(Longt))

VBScript

Sub PostGPSLocation
  Call Mobile.SetCurrent("Nexus 7")
  ' Enable GPS
  Mobile.Device.GPS.GPSEnabled = true
  ' Obtain location data
  Longt = Mobile.Device.GPS.Location.Longitude
  Lat = Mobile.Device.GPS.Location.Latitude
  ' Output the location data
  Call Log.Message("The device location is:")
  Call Log.Message("Longitude: "& aqConvert.VarToStr(Longt))
  Call Log.Message("Latitude: "& aqConvert.VarToStr(Lat))
  Call Log.Message("Altitude: "& aqConvert.VarToStr(Mobile.Device.GPS.Location.Altitude))
  Call Log.Message("Accuracy: "& aqConvert.VarToStr(Mobile.Device.GPS.Location.Accuracy))
  ' Open Google Maps in the browser and pass the coordinates as URL parameters
  Call Browsers.Item(Browsers.btIExplorer).Run("http://maps.google.com/maps?q=loc:" & aqConvert.VarToStr(Lat) & "," & aqConvert.VarToStr(Longt))
End Sub

DelphiScript

procedure PostGPSLocation;
var Longt, Lat;
begin
  Mobile.SetCurrent('Nexus 7');
  // Enable GPS
  Mobile.Device.GPS.GPSEnabled := true;
  // Obtain location data
  Longt := Mobile.Device.GPS.Location.Longitude;
  Lat := Mobile.Device.GPS.Location.Latitude;
  // Output the location data
  Log.Message('The device location is:');
  Log.Message('Longitude: ' + aqConvert.VarToStr(Longt));
  Log.Message('Latitude: ' + aqConvert.VarToStr(Lat));
  Log.Message('Altitude: ' + aqConvert.VarToStr(Mobile.Device.GPS.Location.Altitude));
  Log.Message('Accuracy: ' + aqConvert.VarToStr(Mobile.Device.GPS.Location.Accuracy));

  Browsers.Item(Browsers.btIExplorer).Run('http://maps.google.com/maps?q=loc:'+aqConvert.VarToStr(Lat) + ',' + aqConvert.VarToStr(Longt));
end;

C++Script, C#Script

function PostGPSLocation()
{
  Mobile["SetCurrent"]("Nexus 7");
  // Enable GPS
  Mobile["Device"]["GPS"]["GPSEnabled"] = true;
  // Obtain location data
  var Longt = Mobile["Device"]["GPS"]["Location"]["Longitude"];
  var Lat = Mobile["Device"]["GPS"]["Location"]["Latitude"];
  // Output the location data
  Log["Message"]("The device location is:");

  Log["Message"]("Latitude: " + aqConvert["VarToStr"](Lat));
  Log["Message"]("Altitude: " + aqConvert["VarToStr"](Mobile["Device"]["GPS"]["Location"]["Altitude"]));
  Log["Message"]("Accuracy: " + aqConvert["VarToStr"](Mobile["Device"]["GPS"]["Location"]["Accuracy"]));
  // Open Google Maps in the browser and pass the coordinates as URL parameters
  Browsers["Item"](Browsers["btIExplorer"])["Run"]("http://maps.google.com/maps?q=loc:" + aqConvert["VarToStr"](Lat) + "," + aqConvert["VarToStr"](Longt));
