Hi,
I would like to write an Android application that finds my location when I click a virtual button on the screen.

Can you please let me know in detail how to write this code?

Note: I only need the source code information. I can take care of the rest (setting up Eclipse, Anroid SDK and building the app and deploying it).


Thanks,
