Deleting a GeoPoint with the API

- (void)removeGeoPointWithGeoPoint:(GeoPoint * _Nonnull)geoPoint responseHandler:^(void)responseHandler errorHandler:^(Fault * _Nonnull)errorHandler;
func removeGeoPoint(geoPoint: GeoPoint, responseHandler: (() -> Void)!, errorHandler: ((Fault) -> Void)!)


Argument                Description
geoPoint an instance of GeoPoint to delete from the geolocation storage.


The example below demonstrates how to delete a geopoint. A geopoint is added first, then subsequently deleted.

GeoPoint *geoPoint = // the existing GeoPoint
[Backendless.shared.geo removeGeoPointWithGeoPoint:geoPoint responseHandler:^{
    NSLog(@"GeoPoint has been removed");
} errorHandler:^(Fault *fault) {
    NSLog(@"Error: %@", fault.message);
let geoPoint = // the existing GeoPoint
Backendless.shared.geo.removeGeoPoint(geoPoint: geoPoint, responseHandler: {
    print("GeoPoint has been removed")
}, errorHandler: { fault in
    print("Error: \(fault.message ?? "")")
