Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-10338) getCurrentPosition() hangs on Android 4.2.2
Date Thu, 14 Jan 2016 01:29:40 GMT


Richard B Knoll commented on CB-10338:

It's actually working for me now on the marshmallow device. I didn't change anything, maybe
the GPS on my device was having issues. Could be that I'm not giving a timeout.

>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Plugin Geolocation
>    Affects Versions: 2.0.0
>         Environment: Android 4.2.2 (running cordova-android@5.0.0)

> Neither success or error callbacks are called after calling navigator.geolocation.getCurrentPosition().
> Stepping through the plugin with Chrome's Javascript debugger and Android Studio's Java
debugger shows that the plugin's shim code successfully executes the Geolocation 'getPermission'
check and returns back to fire the shim's success handler (line 31 [here|;a=blob;f=www/android/geolocation.js;h=82e3582e0c225340db44add8fe3ea81256dff03f;hb=57eb4dc550a3d88d3ebbb60a0d6a83d61f898dd7#l31]).
> However the next line which appears to call the platform's native getCurrentPosition()
just hangs; neither the provided success or error callbacks are called. If I try step into
that function call with the Chrome remote debugger it just jumps to the end of the executing
function (line 36 @ above link). It's as if getCurrentPosition() is a no-op. Chrome's "show
function definition" functionality isn't able to resolve the definition either.
> I wonder if the bug is somewhere in the cordova/modulemapper code? This is an area of
Cordova I am not familiar with...
