Geolocation API with Opencage Data (NEW!)

I want to share you this simple and new idea that I know where been searching for! Here is the project link:

API FROM : Opencage data (https://opencagedata.com/api)

Thank you in advance !

Everything works for me on Android 8.1. Only, instead of the open block, I used the block pressing the button, because the map may not be initialized at the time of opening the screen

Hi, @Tijender_Singh ! :wave:

Can you please provide the .json response as text instead of image?
Also, can you please bold out the properties which you want to get?

This would help a lot :slightly_smiling_face:

Thanks! :blush:

thanks again Actech… still not getting any value… no error no response on label5

when i do like this i get the correct data.

do you know what is the issue here

If the response is an object, the block get object from JSON is not needed. Delete block get object from JSON before response.

Well, in this case, the block get object from JSON is needed. Bring it back. Should work.
