Returns reference number or error.


Submits a forward-geocoding request using the specified string.
This method submits the specified location data to the geocoding server asynchronously and returns. Your completion handler block will be executed on the main thread. After initiating a forward-geocoding request, do not attempt to initiate another forward- or reverse-geocoding request.
Geocoding requests are rate-limited for each app, so making too many requests in a short period of time may cause some of the requests to fail. When the maximum rate is exceeded, the geocoder passes an error back.
You need to use CLGeocoder.Close later to free the geocoder.


Geocodes an address:

$r = MBS("CLGeocoder.GeocodeAddressString"; CLGeocoder::AddressString)
