Steps to reproduce


Repro Steps:

  1. Click on “Get Latitude and Longitude” button.
  2. location permission popup appears- click on the close icon(X) at the end of the popup
  3. nothing happens because failure callback is not called.
  4. now instead of closing the popup using close icon(X) if we deny the request failure callback is called and error alert is shown
    Ideally both 3rd and 4th steps should result in same behavior calling the failure callback

Expected Results:

getCurrentPosition api should call failure callback function if the user closes the pop up using the X icon.

Actual Results:
