C# Bluetooth

P: n/a
Hi,

I need to create a app to at first search for BT devices around.
The thing is I cant find the right Dll to work, and the ones I found does
not have examples or it does some BTclient Exception. I was wondering if it
has some C# code for searching BT devices around that is tested and working.
I have SP2 installed so it probabaly uses MS BT Stack.
I dont want to go down to C++ yet.
Microsoft gave the Windows embendded source tools but There was no example
code or Tutorials, Im still playing with it but no progress finding a device.

Thanks !!

Hi, you can try Franson blue tools .net library. I am using it for three
months and It works perfect. It supports microsoft blue tooth stack and
WIDCOMM bluetooth stack too. Do you have any idea about of stacks ??? not
important ...

You can download using with this link www.franson.com.

Good luck.

Notes: You have to work about data Streaming and System.IO namespace too.

Ive used franson bluetools , it works, but the problem is their licence
system ...
Each new project you have to pay 150 bucks.

The problem about stack is MS megalomania hehehe. In about 2 years max every
one is gona use MS bluestack. MS is gona buy braodcom and integrate to the
MS bluestack or is gona enhance their and integrate them free to windows (
like ICQ and MSN). So Im trying not to stay with just the widcomm stack for
now and when that happens the franson bluetools is not gona be so useful
because working .NET with MS BT stack is easier.

Peace to you my friend.
