How to develop bluetooth(BLE) applications with C# Windows Form? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I want to develop a desktop application with C# Windows Form, and the main function of the application is to connect with devices and send data using bluetooth(by BLE protocal).

    I found that there are some BLE APIs in UWP framework, but it can't be used in Windows Form applications.

    Could someone give me some suggestions?

  • Hi Jeremy Zhu,

    Thank you for posting here.

    According to your question, I have found two similar cases.

    1. How can I make a Winforms app that detects nearby BLE devices and reads their characterstics
    2. [WF][C#] How to use Bluetooth LE for the Windows form?

    I hope the advices in the cases can help you.

    Best Regards,

    Xingyu Zhao

  • Hi Zhao,

    Thank you for your reply.

    I have known that I can use the third-party DLL(InTheHand.Net.Personal.dll) to develop Windows Form application. (The requested DLLs can be downloaded from here – https://32feet.codeplex.com/)

    But does Microsoft provide a library to implement it?

    I want to develop my application using Microsoft framework, if you have other suggestions, please tell me.

    Thank you.
