An iOSLocation allows the user to request location coordinates and updates from the device.
Use the Debug ↠ Location menu in the iOS Simulator to provide fake locations for testing.
In the Open event handler of the view, you will need to initialize the location like this:
' we've got our requested authorization state, start getting LocationChanged events
MyLocation.Enabled = True
' we don't have authorization yet, so ask for it
In addition to requesting authorization, you'll also need to provide a plist file specifying the message to display when authorization is requested. An example plist is below. Save it to a file called iOSLocation.plist and drag it into your iOS project to automatically include it with the app:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>NSLocationWhenInUseUsageDescription</key> <string>This app needs access to your location while running.</string> </dict> </plist>
