Sending a "String" via Bluetooth RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear all,

    I have some BT-Devices  that have no problem with pairing and sending files.
    I´d like to send only some Strings, but just got to "go over the serial-port" answers.

    The thing is:
    "Server (my Surface)" opens BT
    "My Phone (yes it´s still a WP)" says yes / or commits
    my Surface Server sends something
    MyPhone commits receiving
    End of transaction

    Maybe pairing will be deleted

    Like a NullModem.

    Been searching for some days, but much of the solutions seem to be "overweight"

    Just a Function like:
    Function: SendthruBT PairingKey??,9600,8,n,1,myStringHere  [You know what I mean]

    Could anyone help me with this issue.
    I´d appreciate, if anyone could recommend a  Bluetooth-Terminal program. Some Telnet for BT

    Thanks very much

    Raimo

  • Hi Raimo,

    Sorry for the late reply.

    Since your project is more related to VB6, it will be more appropriate to ask your question at VBForums: Visual Basic 6 and Earlier Forum.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    Regards,

  • Who do you think is going to receive those strings?  Bluetooth devices, like USB devices, expose certain services.  If your device supports a service, you can connect to it.  If your device doesn't offer a "terminal" service, then there isn't going to be anybody listening for a terminal-like connection.

  • Hello Stanly and Tim,

    sorry for the late answer
    You are both right in demanding details.

    I have a running old VB6-Programme, that was/is communicating via serial ports:

    Serial Port (eg COM1) to Serial Port(Com1); Serial<->Serial
    It works also (depending on drivers) Serial>Serial-USB and vice versa.

    But to handle communication is time-expensive and it is difficult to get the customers into the DeviceManager and then so on and forth...

    --EDIT:
    Boss wants to make it via Bluetooth

    -- End EDIT

    ---- This is Windows 7/8.1 to Windows 7/8.1

    I have Bluetooh-Communication (is it like FTDI?) and I can send sometinhg. And my Usb-Bluetooh stcik reacts. But I need somekind of Reciever. That I meant with terminal-programme.
    A listener on that prot that my bluetooth-stick is assigned

    Hope this makes it clearer

  • Hi Stanly,

    got a half week off.
    Actually I don´t need VB6. 

    Any VBNet, any C#would have done . It is all about the librariies.

    Anyway... The ongiong costs of "Certification (Bluetooth)" for commercial competition are... Quite smooth

    Thanks very much, but we´re not riding that horse.

    Greetings

    Rai
