I have an html form which contain name, longitude and latitude text field. The longitude and latitude are stored in a javascript variable. Do you know how pass only the latitude and longitude to a server, I mean via a url? Everytime I am submitting the form, the longitude and latitude are not passed into the url? Can anyone please tell me how to do that?

This is my code for both my javascript and html:

if (navigator.geolocation) {
var geolocation = {};
geolocation.latitude = 0;
geolocation.longitude = 0;
navigator.geolocation.getCurrentPosition(function (p) {
geolocation.latitude = p.coords.latitude;
geolocation.longitude = p.coords.longitude;           
}, function (error) {
alert("Failed to get GPS location");
} else {
alert("Failed to get GPS working");
function loc() {
document.getElementById("longitude").value = geolocation.latitude;
document.getElementById("latitude").value = geolocation.longitude;


<form name="photo" method="post" action="url">
<label for="name">Name:</label>
<input type="text" name="name" id="Text1" value="" />
<label for="longitude">Longitude:</label>
<input type="text" name="longitude" id="longitude" />
<label for="latitude">Latitude:</label>
<input type="text" name="latitude" id="latitude" />
<label for="image">Image:</label>
<input type="text" name="image" id="image" />
<input type="submit" value="Submit" />

Can you be more clear on your scenario and exactly what you are trying to do?

I haven't tested this but using jquery I believe you could just do this if you put id="photo" on your form:

$("#photo").attr("action", action + "add in your values here");

This modifies the action attribute of your form.

Solution 1

function loc() {
function is there to set the value in textfield, but you did not call it.
call this "loc()" function to set the value in textfield.
