BluetoothManager

extends Object
java.lang.Object
   ↳ android.bluetooth.BluetoothManager

Class Overview

High level manager used to obtain an instance of an BluetoothAdapter and to conduct overall Bluetooth Management.

Use getSystemService(java.lang.String) with BLUETOOTH_SERVICE to create an BluetoothManager, then call getAdapter() to obtain the BluetoothAdapter.

Alternately, you can just call the static helper getDefaultAdapter().

Public Methods

public BluetoothAdapter getAdapter ()

Added in API level 18

Get the default BLUETOOTH Adapter for this device.

Returns
BluetoothAdapter the default BLUETOOTH Adapter

public List<BluetoothDevice> getConnectedDevices (int profile)

Added in API level 18

Get connected devices for the specified profile.

Return the set of devices which are in state STATE_CONNECTED

This is not specific to any application configuration but represents the connection state of Bluetooth for this profile. This can be used by applications like status bar which would just like to know the state of Bluetooth.

Requires BLUETOOTH permission.

Parameters
profile int: GATT or GATT_SERVER
Returns
List<BluetoothDevice> List of devices. The list will be empty on error.

public int getConnectionState (BluetoothDevice device, int profile)

Added in API level 18

Get the current connection state of the profile to the remote device.

This is not specific to any application configuration but represents the connection state of the local Bluetooth adapter for certain profile. This can be used by applications like status bar which would just like to know the state of Bluetooth.

Requires BLUETOOTH permission.

Parameters
device BluetoothDevice: Remote bluetooth device.
profile int: GATT or GATT_SERVER
Returns
int State of the profile connection. One of STATE_CONNECTED, STATE_CONNECTING, STATE_DISCONNECTED, STATE_DISCONNECTING

public List<BluetoothDevice> getDevicesMatchingConnectionStates (int profile, int[] states)

Added in API level 18

Get a list of devices that match any of the given connection states.

If none of the devices match any of the given states, an empty list will be returned.

This is not specific to any application configuration but represents the connection state of the local Bluetooth adapter for this profile. This can be used by applications like status bar which would just like to know the state of the local adapter.

Requires BLUETOOTH permission.

Parameters
profile int: GATT or GATT_SERVER
states int: Array of states. States can be one of STATE_CONNECTED, STATE_CONNECTING, STATE_DISCONNECTED, STATE_DISCONNECTING,
Returns
List<BluetoothDevice> List of devices. The list will be empty on error.

public BluetoothGattServer openGattServer (Context context, BluetoothGattServerCallback callback)

Added in API level 18

Open a GATT Server The callback is used to deliver results to Caller, such as connection status as well as the results of any other GATT server operations. The method returns a BluetoothGattServer instance. You can use BluetoothGattServer to conduct GATT server operations.

Parameters
context Context: App context
callback BluetoothGattServerCallback: GATT server callback handler that will receive asynchronous callbacks.
Returns
BluetoothGattServer BluetoothGattServer instance
