How to setup Windows CE 6.0 Bluetooth device invisible RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I'm starting to work with the Bluetooth Api in Windows CE 6.0. My Device is everytime visible for all other bluetooth devices. How can I set it invisible or how I can deny any coupling from a bluetooth device to my windows ce device?

    What I want to do is to use the bluetooth teethering from a smartphone to my device. So I want to connect from my WinCE 6.0 device to the smartphone and I don't want to allow a coupling startet from the smartphone to my WinCE device.

    I hope somebody can help me.

    Best Regards

  • Hi,

    I think you have a few options here. 

    You can use BthSetMode API with BTH_RADIO_MODE enumeration to do this. Refer:

    BTH_CONNECTABLE may be the right option for you to choose here.

    Somehow , the links are available for Windows Mobile 6.5 and compact 2013 , not CE 6.0 , but i believe the APIs should be present and supported.

  • Hi,

    I didn't have the function BthSetMode in WinCE 6.0 or I couldn't find it. I have no Bthutil.lib/dll and it is not part of btdrt.dll

  • Yes , you are right. I just verified and it doesn't seem to exist.
