Widcomm stack get remote device name
« on: May 12, 2011, 09:52:57 PM »

I'm having issues with the Widcomm stack. When my server receives a OnOBEXObjectReceived(), I call GetDeviceName() to get the name of the remote device and it returns an empty string name every time.  When I do this with the Microsoft, Toshiba, and BlueSoliel stack it works correctly.  Is this a widcomm limitation?

Unfortunately yes, it is WidComm issue. WidComm has no function for read remote device name without discovering remote devices. WCL uses internal cache where stores names for previously discovered devices. However if device wasn't discovered WidComm (and WCL) cann't read (return) its name.

For now we have no working solution or workaround for that issue but we are working on this and hope that we can find something.
