I want to store a user’s last location in a field in a table and see all user locations. How do I do that? Can you guide me in this direction?
I assume your client app is done with UI builder. In there you can get user’s location and store it in the database with an API call.
Here’s a video how to get user’s location:
And one how to save data in the database:
Hi Mark, thank you for your answer. I would, however, like to update a user’s location at a certain time, not to create a location table.
Using the API you can update user’s location at any time in any table.
Could you please describe that logic using words? Ideally with this format:
- Do X
- Do Y
- at an interval of 5 sec do this:
- set the currentLocation property in Page Data.
- Save in the “Livratori(Deliverers)” table to the currentLocation property related to deliveryBoy which is currentUser.
At least that’s what I want to happen …
I do not understand why you are loading table objects…
Well, I want to get the object to update with the new location. I don’t understand something…
Anyway, how should I proceed?
Correct me, if I misunderstand you. You want to have a user login, and then invoke a method that will determine his current location and update it in the currentLocation column.
I want to store and update at a certain time interval, in the currentLocation in the Users table the current location of a user of each onLine, and then I can see on the map the locations of the users
So? Can someone help me please?
You are almost there. I’d recommend simplifying logic for updating the location in the database. Use the “Bulk Update” object where you can specify a query identifying the object you need to update. It will be much simpler codeless logic altogether.
Using the logic you posted above are you getting the expected result?
That would be okay. I also want to attach a label to each marker. How do I do that?
Please clarify what you mean by “label” and “each marker”.
I mean an info label for marker
and I have a marker at the current location for each user
