FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

How to get current location latitude and longitude in Salesforce?

You need to use Google's GeoCoding API. Make a http request to the API with the required parameters and you would get the lat long as the response. More details about the API and examples are here.

What is the difference between @track and @API in LWC?

@api: It is used to expose a variable or functions publically and make properties reactive. @track: It is used to make variable private but reactive. Tracked properties are also called private reactive properties. @wire: To read Salesforce data, Lightning web components use a reactive wire service.

How do I find a location with latitude and longitude?

To find a location using its latitude and longitude on any device, just open Google Maps. On your phone or tablet, start the Google Maps app. On a computer, go to Google Maps in a browser. Then enter the latitude and longitude values in the search field β€” the same one you would ordinarily use to enter an address.
