GeoCoordinateWatcher.StatusChanged Event

Indicates that the status of the GeoCoordinateWatcher object has changed.

Namespace:  System.Device.Location
Assembly:  System.Device (in System.Device.dll)

public event EventHandler<GeoPositionStatusChangedEventArgs> StatusChanged

The StatusChanged event is raised on the same thread that the GeoCoordinateWatcher object was created on.

The following example demonstrates how to handle StatusChanged events.

using System;
using System.Device.Location;
namespace ShowStatusUpdates
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)

        static void ShowStatusUpdates()
            GeoCoordinateWatcher watcher = new GeoCoordinateWatcher();

            watcher.StatusChanged += new EventHandler<GeoPositionStatusChangedEventArgs>(watcher_StatusChanged);

            Console.WriteLine("Enter any key to quit.");


        static void watcher_StatusChanged(object sender, GeoPositionStatusChangedEventArgs e)
            switch (e.Status)
                case GeoPositionStatus.Initializing:
                    Console.WriteLine("Working on location fix");

                case GeoPositionStatus.Ready:
                    Console.WriteLine("Have location");

                case GeoPositionStatus.NoData:
                    Console.WriteLine("No data");

                case GeoPositionStatus.Disabled:
