HTML5 Geolocation and Canvas IBM XPages Custom Controls Demo
07/10/2012 01:34:00 PM by Chris Toohey
After creating various HTML5 Custom Controls for my IBM XPages application development toolkit, I thought I would showcase two of these controls -- Geolocation and Canvas -- to paint a Google Map of the current user location. Bonus: works great on mobile devices too!
Here's a link to the demo, plus a qrcode for those of you wanting to try this out on a mobile device (and don't want to have to type in the full URL...):
Here's a walk-thru on the mobile demo (screencaps from my iPhone 4):
Check out the demo, and let me know what you think. I've already got a friend that's now using this technique to track location information for the current user as part of their mobile application... so the application of these controls are only limited to your specific business/application needs. And, of course, I'll be using this technique (and various others) along with my HTML5 custom controls on a currently hush-hush project that I'm working on... so stay tuned!
