Hello,

I can discover, connect and exchange data with connected BLE devices using the .NET Bluetooth Framework. However, it would help if I could reach advertising payloads during BLE discovery (e.g. in OnDeviceFound events). Is this possible within the OnDeviceFound event handler context, or should I be looking into BeaconWatcher events (or something else I haven't come across in the documentation) in parallel with OnDeviceFound events?

Thanks,
kg

Hello,

You should use BeaconWatcher to be able to capture advertised data frames. However not all frames can be captured. Windows does not provide access to common/basic BLE frames such as frames that contains Name, MAC and other service information of the device.
