we are evaluating BlueTools for inclusion in a Windows Mobile 5 VB.NET application. The PDA has Microsoft bluetooth stack.
The application connects to an RS232-BT adapter, which in turn is conncted via rs-232 to an embedded microprocessor's serial port.
When the application sends a command to the microprocessor via BT, it responds with a string.
The application works perfectly by using the VB.NET SerialPort class.
We'd like to switch to bluetools because of the ability to enumerate BT devices and their services.
Now to the point: when we send a command to the microprocessor using the BlueTools APIs, only the first 2 to 4 characters of the response string are displayed. If we send another command or even an empty string, the following 4 characters are displayed, then with another command or empty string another 4 chars come up, etc., until the end of the string.
At that point, no further characters are displayed because the commands are not sent anymore. We are sure about this because some commands have visible effects (i.e. turn on leds, motors, ecc.), and nothing happens.
Manager.BlueToolsVersion.ToString = 188.8.131.528
Windows obile 5.0 with Featur Pack, Operating system 5.1.476 (Build 15704.3.5.0)
Bluetools module versions: all report 184.108.40.20604
Thanks in advance for your help.
