The user wrote gps coordinates, my script search the city, postcode, altitude from these coordinates, by a local database or by internet so it may take time.

I've just tested this solution, it seem to work :

on keydown thekey

   if "ecriture" is in the pendingmessages then wait for messages
   pass keydown
end keydown

on returninfield
... get the datas from the coordinates
send "ecriture tdatas" to me in 10 ## sent only if the coordinates changes
end returninfield

on ecriture tDatas
 put the selectedchunk into tposchunk
.... wrote the city, postcode et cie
 if tposchunk <> "" then select after char (word 4 of tposChunk) of fld "Table"	
end ecriture
