GeoLocation doesn't work on Business Central Cloud

Posted on by 6

Hi everyone,
I'm getting an error when i try to get Latitude & Longitude. The code looks like this shown below :




                Caption = 'GeoLocation';

                ApplicationArea = All;

                Promoted = true;

                Image = Map;

                trigger OnAction()


                    Geolocation: Codeunit Geolocation;

                    Latitude: Decimal;

                    Longitude: Decimal;

                    Msg: Label 'Latitude is %1.//Longitude is %2.';



                        if Geolocation.RequestGeolocation() then begin

                            Geolocation.GetGeolocation(Latitude, Longitude);

                            Message(Msg, Format(Latitude), Format(Longitude));



And the error I get says : /
Exception of type 'Microsoft.Dynamics.Nav.Types.Exceptions.NavNCLNotSupportedTypeException' was thrown./


Can anyone help with this. Thanks in advanced!

    Hi, on May 14th I open a ticket to MS to ask information about the error.
    Today they answer me: "The product team affirmed that the inability to open Geolocation page is based on a code defect and a work item has been created to address the issue."

    There is indeed a problem, I'm sorry I don't know the solution yet, and Microsoft's documentation doesn't say it's been deprecated, which may be a standards issue.
    codeunit 7569 "Geolocation Impl."
