Here’s another in the ongoing parade of dumb questions…
OK, I have an address. I ship that address off, via an API Call, to a geocoding service from which I quickly receive latitude and longitude values. Now, I want to stuff those two lovely numbers into an Object Property of type Location so I can show it on a map.
Simple, n’est-ce pas?
But no, I am at a complete loss at how to do it. I’ve only found two ways to populate a Location property:
- Put it on a form and have the user fill in Lat & Long
- Have it auto-captured in a “Location Capture Field”. This gets the user’s location, which doesn’t help.
This must be simple, but I’ve been at it too long, and I can’t see it. I’m about to write an event processor to see if I can get to the underlying Location structure that way. Please tell me I’m missing something much easier!
