How to reset the bluetooth dongle
« on: February 02, 2011, 05:02:59 PM »
I have an application in which I connect to a bluetooth device with a known address and password.  If for some reason my application should crash while still connected, the connection remains active for approximately 5 minutes before I can reconnect. 

I would like to reset the bluetooth dongle programmatically in this situation.  I've found one example that shows opening the "BTD0:" device as a file and sending a command, however, this doesn't work, or I can't get the example to work.

I know there is SOME way to make this happen, because I can mouse over to the Bluetooth tray icon, right click, stop the dongle, and then start it again.

Do you know of a way I can reset the dongle programmatically?  And if not, is there a way my application can regain control of the connected device when the application starts back up?

Thanks much
Steve

Thanks Mike.  I suspected not, but I thought I'd check with you before giving up.

Cheers!
