Win10 receive file from bluetooth device

  • Hi at all,

    I have to implement a file transfer (pictures) from a mobile phone to a Win10 computer.
    I've look the examples "btfiletransfer" in C++ and "picturetranfer" in QML but they don't work.

    Do you have already use bluetooth to receive file in Win10?
    Do you have some advice?

    Thank you.

  • Take a look at qtconnecetivity examples.
    I am currently using "btscanner" as a basic bluetooth application.
    It did not work well "out of box" and it is not well documented.
    btscanner "only" inquires for nearby bluetooth devices and does rudimentary "pair".
    My next qtconnecetivity example will be "chat" (?) which seems to implement actual transfer of data via bluetooth.

    In general - bluetooth applications are based on "bluez" library , one of the most underdocumeted resource and "everybody is using it ".


  • Thank you @AnneRanch
