event.country

Description:

Gets the country name in response to a myMap:nearestAddress() call.

Syntax:

county = event.county

Example:

-- Create a native MapView (requires XCode Simulator build or device build)
-- You can create multiple maps, if you like...
--
myMap = native.newMapView( 20, 20, 300, 220 )
myMap.mapType = "standard" -- other mapType options are "satellite" or "hybrid"
 
-- The MapView is just another Corona display object, and can be moved or rotated, etc.
myMap.x = display.contentWidth / 2
myMap.y = 120
 
-- Initialize map to a real location, since default location (0,0) is not very interesting
myMap:setCenter( 37.331692, -122.030456 )
 
local function mapAddressHandler( event )
    -- handle mapAddress event here
    print( "The specified location is in: " .. event.city .. ", " .. event.country )
end
 
myMap:nearestAddress( 38.898748, -77.037684 )
 
Runtime:addEventListener( "mapAddress", mapAddressHandler )

Parameters:
