Javascript Question

PlaceResult object returns latitude/longitude as object, not sure how to get them individually

I'm testing out the Google Places autocomplete feature here:

https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/examples/places-autocomplete

I want to get the latitude and longitude of the Place, but I'm having some troubles. When I use the following code:

var place = autocomplete.getPlace();
console.log(place.geometry.location);


I get this returned:

enter image description here

When I use it in an infoWindow like this:

infowindow.setContent('
<div><strong>' + place.name + '</strong><br>' + place.geometry.location);


place.geometry.location
is then displayed like this:


(53.539834, -113.49402099999998)


All I want to do is get the lat and lng separately.
place.geometry.location.lat
doesn't work. Not sure what else to do.

Answer

You can use it like this.

var latitude = place.geometry.location.lat();
var longitude = place.geometry.location.lng();
