Sets a location trigger.
Can be scheduled on the device to notify when the user enters or leaves a geographic region. The identifier on region must be unique. Scheduling multiple notifications with different regions containing the same identifier will result in undefined behavior. The number of location triggers that may be scheduled by an application at any one time is limited by the system. Applications must have "when-in-use" authorization through CoreLocation.


Create location trigger and query back values:

# Create a new notification
Set Variable [$notification; Value:MBS("UNNotification.New")]
# Set Title and Body
Set Variable [$r; Value:MBS("UNNotification.SetTitle"; $notification; "Hello")]
Set Variable [$r; Value:MBS("UNNotification.SetBody"; $notification; "Greetings from FileMaker")]
# set a location trigger
Set Variable [$r; Value:MBS( "UNNotification.SetLocationTrigger"; $Notification; 37,354444; -121,969167; 50000; "Santa Clara area")]
# and query back trigger settings
Set Variable [$value; Value:MBS("UNNotification.Region"; $notification)]
Set Variable [$value; Value:MBS("UNNotification.Repeats"; $notification)]
# and schedule
Set Variable [$r; Value:MBS("UNNotification.Schedule"; $notification; "test")]
