In french: GPSArrêteDétection
// Enables the notification for position detection
nID is int
nID = GPSDetectPosition(DetectionProc, 1.145258, 30.968745)
// Stops the notification for position detection
<Detection identifier>: Integer
Identifier corresponding to the detection that must be interrupted. This identifier is returned by GPSDetectPosition.
The function has no effect if this identifier corresponds to no current detection.
- To stop receiving notifications, use GPSEnd.
- To stop detecting the proximity of a specific location, you also have the ability to return False in the associated procedure (procedure defined in GPSDetectPosition).
The call to this function modifies the permissions required by the application.
Required permission: ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION.
Android 11 specific case:
This function requires the ACCESS_BACKGROUND_LOCATION permission to access the device's location.
This permission allows using the function when the application is in the background.
If the application needs to use background location:
A window allows users to:
- Manually add the "ACCESS_BACKGROUND_LOCATION" permission in the Android application generation wizard.
- Explicitly request background location permission with PermissionRequest. For example:
INTERNAL PROCEDURE Callback(p is Permission)
IF p.Granted THEN
// Functions that require background location access can be used
- allow access to the device location while the application is in the background,
- allow access to the location only while the application is in use,
- deny access to the location. The user can also change these permissions at any time in the Android settings.
- Follow Google's guidelines for applications that require background location access. For more details, see https://support.google.com/googleplay/android-developer/answer/9799150. If these conditions are not met (especially user information requirements), applications may not be accepted for publication on Google Play.
- The background location permission should only be requested if the location permission has been granted. Otherwise, PermissionRequest will fail.
- If the option chosen by the user for the background location access request is more restrictive than the option chosen for the location access request, the application will be automatically restarted.
- On devices running Android 10 or earlier, if location permission has been granted to the application, the background location permission will be granted without displaying a window.
Required application feature
When this function is used, an application feature is declared in the application generation wizard.
