iOSGPSData Object

Applies to TestComplete 14.72, last modified on January 20, 2021

Description

The iOSGPSData object represents data that was obtained from the GPS sensor of the connected mobile device. You can use this object to get the current location of the device (either the actual or a mock location). See Geolocation Testing.

The iOSGPSData object is returned by the Device.GPS.Location property.

The prepared application must be running on the device.

Location Services must be enabled on the device, and your running application must have a permission to use your location. To give the application the needed permission, trigger the Location Services prompt for the application. You can do this from TestComplete by viewing the Mobile.Device("MyDevice").GPS.Location property in the Object Browser, or by running the following code from a test:

JavaScript, JScript

Mobile.Device("MyDevice").GPS.Location;

Python

Mobile.Device('MyDevice').GPS.Location

VBScript

Mobile.Device("MyDevice").GPS.Location

DelphiScript

Mobile.Device('MyDevice').GPS.Location;

C++Script, C#Script

Mobile["Device"]("MyDevice")["GPS"]["Location"];

Example

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

JavaScript, JScript

function PostGPSLocation()
{
  Mobile.SetCurrent("iPad");
  // Check whether GPS is enabled
  if (Mobile.Device().GPS.GPSEnabled)
  {
    // 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("VerticalAccuracy: "+ aqConvert.VarToStr(Mobile.Device().GPS.Location.VerticalAccuracy));
    Log.Message("HorizontalAccuracy: "+ aqConvert.VarToStr(Mobile.Device().GPS.Location.orizontalAccuracy));
    Log.Message("Course: " + aqConvert.VarToStr(Mobile.Device().GPS.Location.Course));
    Log.Message("Speed: " + aqConvert.VarToStr(Mobile.Device().GPS.Location.Speed));
    // 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));
