Hi Cameron,

Thanks for the clarifications.

I assume the [Callback] will be added on PositionOptions, PositionCallback and PositionErrorCallback interfaces.

The int issue seems to be a simple bug (and I have looked so many times in the spec .... ).


Kind regards,

While I’m trying to include an example for each feature of Web IDL, I
agree it would be useful to have some task-focussed examples such as
this one (i.e., “I want to have a named-argument like mechanism in

PositionCallback and PositionErrorCallback both need [Callback] on them
too.  If you don’t mind if both

  getCurrentPosition(function(p) { … }, …)


  getCurrentPosition({ handleEvent: function(p) { … } }, …)

work, then you can leave it as is.  If you want only the former, use
[Callback=FunctionOnly], and for the latter, [Callback=PropertyOnly].
I think the default is fine.

Also, the “int” type used as the clearWatch() argument type should be
