Hi ,

I need to send pictures via bluetooth from my application on my desktop (Windows XP) to a mobile phone. Any idea how to do that? Can you give me some pointers and references where to begin? Is it possible to do it using the Windows bluetooth SDK?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.

Update:

Ok. I found this http://support.microsoft.com/kb/883259#81[^] . At the end of the page , there is a send / receive file option. I want to do pit programatically. Any guide to do it progrmatically?

I'm doing the same project as yours. What I have right now is just sending texts. I'm still trying to figure out how for images (specifically jpeg). If you ever got the solution, please share it with me. So will I on you if I get it first. Thanks.

Can you help us by giving your text sending solution?

1 solution

Bluetooth API - is a good idea
You can use next steps:
1. Enum available phone services with WSALookupServiceBegin, WSALookupServiceNext functions
2. Get OBEX File Transfer service address
3. Create bluetooth socket
4. Connect to the finded service address
5. Implement OBEX File Transfer protocol (Connect and Put commands - http://netwinder.osuosl.org/pub/netwinder/docs/nw/irda/IrOBEX12.pdf[^], http://dotcom.bluetoothsig.org/SiteCollectionDocuments/GOEP_SPEC_V12.pdf[^]) and send file through the socket
I can share own test project, but dont know how to attach it to the solution
