Connectable, Discoverable and Proximity Sender
« on: July 01, 2008, 03:14:30 AM »
Hi,

I was trying to use the Proximity Sender though a BlueSoleil drive, and Widcomm drive. When the ProximitySender_DeviceAccepted fires, I get no devices back. However, if I use MS Stack, it works.

Isn't ProximitySender works for BlueSoleil and Widcomm drive? When I try to access the Raio.Connectable() property, I got a "Feature is not supported" message. Is this related? How do I know which dongles, or drivers supported by ProximitySender.

Thank for helping,
dsum

Good day!

ProximitySender support all drivers. May not work with BlueSoleil 5.X and high.

"Feature not supported" means that the driver does not support this feature. Connectable/Discoverable completly supported only by MS drivers. Partial supported by Toshiba (read only).

I thought the WCL framework supports multiple Proximity Sender, please correctly me if I am wrong?
Wouldn't it make sense that Proximity Sender should able to work with BlueSoliel and Widcomm as well?

Does the demo version support it? I am having trouble of sending file using Widcomm or BlueSoleil API.

Yes, of course. The demo app support MassSender. What is the problem you have with BlueSoleil and WidComm? You can test it in easy way by downloading this application: http://www.fexmax.com. The application written with using the ProximitySender and works with MS/WD/BS and Toshiba (not tested with last one :) ).

Hi,

Thanks for the suggestion. I will give it a try by testing the fexmax tool.

Here is one situation where I use the WCLDemo, a BlueSoleil Drive (ver 2.3 release 060728), a class I bluetooth dongle, and a Sony Ericsson Z710i. The cellphone is paired already and has visibility to true .

In the WCLDemo, I click the "LOAD" to see the available API and click Enum to find the dongle.  After I selected the radio with no connectable or discoverable feature, I click on the Proximity Sender tab. I added a test file and click on start.

From the Proximity Sender log, this is what I get:
Started
Discovery started
Discovery complete:
(00:18:13:25:08:E4)
(00:19:632A:15:07)
Accept device (00:18:13:25:08:E4)
Accept device (00:19:632A:15:07)
Accepted devices:
Sleep started
Sleep done
Discovery started
Discovery complete:
Accepted devices:
Sleep started

There were 2 cellphones within range, including mine.

In the code, wclProximitySender_DevicesAccepted(), the wclSpamDiscoveryCompleteEventArgs return 0 device everytime.
In addition, the BlueSOleil Service main window (the program that run BlueSoleil) will automatically run when I Load the API using WCLDemo. When I start the Proximity Sender, it will freeze. Even when I click stop. it continue to freeze, forcing me to kill the BlueSoleil process.

However, if I switch the API to MS Stack, it works as excepted. So I am guessing Promixity Sender may not work with the BlueSoleil drive. Which version of BlueSoleil or Widcomm drive does ProximitySender work?

Good day!

Thank you for your very detailed report.

I will check it ut and fix the problem. The ProximitySender developed for work with all drivers. I have tested it with BS 2.3 and it worked here. I will check it again. It ssems like a bug and not like a driver problem, because ProximitySender, I repeat :), must work with BlueSoleil.

Thanks for replying my message.

In case you are interested. I also installed WIDCOMM Bluetooth Software 1.4.1 Build 6, and MS Stack.

The other problem (not related to WCL) I have is that one of my dongle like to use the BS drive instead of the WIDCOMM drive. I often have to reinstall the correct WIDCOMM drive for this particular dongle, so that at the end I can have 3 dongles on the same machine.

I hope you can solve the issue soon.

Seems to be fixed. Try to re download the library.

Hi,

Thanks, it seems like I have been running a older version. The newest one that I download works.
