Pairing Window
« on: November 25, 2010, 06:14:50 PM »
I'm using the wclClient can connecting to a device that has it's pin in it's friendly name. I'm pairing as follows.
Code: [Select]
Device.Address := address;

      wclClient.Transport := ctBluetooth;
      wclClient.BluetoothParams.Address := address;
      wclClient.BluetoothParams.Radio := Radio;
      wclClient.BluetoothParams.Service := SerialPortServiceClass_UUID;

      Cnt := 0;
      Res := WCL_E_SUCCESS;
      while Cnt < 3 do begin
        Res := Device.GetName(Radio, aName);
        if (aName <> '') or (Res <> WCL_E_SUCCESS) then Break;
        Inc(Cnt);
      end;

      if Res <> WCL_E_SUCCESS then
        raise Exception.Create('Unable to get device name.');

      pin := GetPinFromName( aName );

      if ( device.GetPaired( radio, isPaired ) <> WCL_E_SUCCESS ) then
        raise Exception.Create('Unabled to communicate with device');

      if ( (isPaired = false) and (Device.Pair( radio, pin ) <> WCL_E_SUCCESS) ) then
          raise Exception.Create('Unable to pair device.');

      if (wclClient.Connect <> WCL_E_SUCCESS ) then
        raise Exception.Create('Error. Connect failed.');


This seems to work 90% of the time. The onther 10% i get the pairing window prompting me for the pin. Do i need to delay before calling the connect?

Hi,

Your code looks correct. Unfortunately I can not say way it may happen without testing it in real everonment. However, there is better way: use wclAuthenticator instead of Pair method.

No, It must be true if your device requires authentication. TwclAuthenticator is one of the WCL components (available in Personal and Developer licenses).

Okay. We currently only have the lite non commerical. For now i guess i will try inserting a small delay after the pair.

By your code:

it also may appear if Name wasn't read so the PIN is empty. In this case PIN dialog may popup.

The name should be there. I scan and query the name in another operation.

I guess it's possible if the device some how went out of range or the radio connection momentarily got interrupted.
If that's the case, that's fine. Displaying the dialog to attempt a manual pairing is better than failing immediatly.

So you're saying the  problem isn't because the Device.Pair call needs a bit of time before the
wclClient.Connect?

It does look like name is empty. Check it.

Okay, i'll remove the delay and put in a trap to throw an exception if the name is blank. I'll see if that's the issue.

I added

Code: [Select]
if aName = '' then
  raise Exception.Create('Unable to get device name.');

I still see the pairing window, from time to time. I never see the exception. It appears to me windows or WCL needs some time after the pair call.

I'll just add a delay.

Well, Actualy TwclAuthenticator was designed for such usage.

WCL just uses low-leve driver. Unfortunately we can not reproduce that on our side but we will work on it to find the problem and fix.

We only have the lite version. It's really not a big deal, with a 100ms delay things seem to work out.
