Geolocation Options structure

The Geolocation Options object contains the following parameters:

  • enableHighAccuracy (Boolean) - By default, the device attempts to retrieve a position using the network-based methods. Setting this property to true enables ColdFusion to use more accurate methods, such as satellite positioning.
  • timeOut (Number) – The maximum time length (milliseconds) that is allowed to pass from the call to getCurrentPosition or watchPosition until the corresponding geolocationSuccess callback gets executed.
  • maximumAge (Number) - Accept a cached position whose age is no greater than the specified time in milliseconds.
