[The Win32 Location API is available for use in the operating systems specified in the Requirements section. It may be altered or unavailable in subsequent versions. Instead, use the Windows.Devices.GeolocationAPI. ]
Provides methods used to manage location reports, event registration, and sensor permissions.
The ILocation interface has these methods.
|ILocation::GetDesiredAccuracy||Retrieves the current requested accuracy setting.|
|ILocation::GetReport||Retrieves a location report.|
|ILocation::GetReportInterval||Retrieves the requested amount of time, in milliseconds, between report events.|
|ILocation::GetReportStatus||Retrieves the status for the specified report type.|
|ILocation::RegisterForReport||Requests location report events.|
|ILocation::RequestPermissions||Opens a system dialog box to request user permission to enable location devices.|
|ILocation::SetDesiredAccuracy||Specifies the accuracy to be used.|
|ILocation::SetReportInterval||Specifies the requested minimum amount of time, in milliseconds, between report events.|
|ILocation::UnregisterForReport||Stops event notifications for the specified report type.|
When CoCreateInstance is callled to create an ILocation object, it may result in a notification being displayed in the taskbar, and a Location Activity event being logged in Event Viewer, if it is the application's first use of location.
