Geolocation & memory leak

Recommended Posts

Craig Hopson    1

hi all new day new problem... ok i THINK the problem i'm having is memory leak but not shore. my script logs user location as they move, if you look at

http://chsites.co.uk/track/www/index.html

Tracking ID = 97

Send at most every (sec) = 5

Minimum Accuracy (meters) = 100000

then open your debug console (i have some notes in there still debugging) you will see that it logs every 5 seconds all good it works BUT after some time it will lock up the browser and eventually crash it

also problem 2 it will post multi times like 3 times at once how can i stop that

so to recap...

problem 1:- browser locking up after some time.

problem 2:-multi posting.

Thanks

Just looking at it quickly, it asked me if I wanted to share location every 5 seconds, it seems like after the interval period its running the whole script again.

For some more information:

https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Using_geolocation

I believe using

window.setInterval(StartTracking...)[/CODE]

[size=4]I think, I haven't played with geolocation much.[/size]
