How to transfer files between computer and mobile device using bluetooth

Posted By: Syed Shakeer Hussain     Posted Date: August 01, 2010    Points: 2   Category :Others
What is Bluetooth? How can I have it on my computer?

Bluetooth wireless technology is a communication technology that allows two devices to communicate wirelessly. Most of the notebooks are nowadays equipped with bluetooth. For those notebooks or computers that don't, you can use a bluetooth dongle to add the functionality and it just costs you around $5. Although higher price range bluetooth dongles are available but it makes no sense of buying them if you just plan to connect your mobile device to the computer. Look for one that has Bluetooth v2.0 + EDR (Enhance Data Rate) supporting speeds of upto 3Mbps and with Vista support. You can easily have one of that kind in just $5.

Setting up bluetooth to work on your computer

Just Insert the bluetooth dongle in the USB.
It should get detected by your Operating System and should be ready to use. In case it is just detected as a new hardware, you need to install drivers for it that came with your bluetooth dongle (You can try Google to find the drivers).
Once drivers are installed, a bluetooth notification icon will appear in your system tray.
Right Click on it to access Settings (This may vary with your bluetooth dongle).
Make sure you have turned Discovery On (It allow others to see your computer).
Switch On the bluetooth on the mobile device.

How to create a windows mobile (Smart Device) .Cab installer

A Cab file is the default setup format for Windows CE and Windows Mobile devices (similar to windows .msi files). You probably already have installed several application using .cab files, and are familiar with the concept. One point which is often unknown is that .cab files are processed by wceloader.exe, and it can only install one .cab file at a time. That means we cannot have nested .cab files. It doesn't mean we cannot have .cab files contained by another .cab, but the contained .cab files will not be installed during the installation of the container .cab. We should install it manually after the container .cab file installation has been completed.

There are two ways to create a cabinet (.Cab) file. The traditional one, and the friendly VS Smart Device Cab project which doesn't require additional coding, but which also relies on the traditional one at low-level.

Bluetooth Printing Guide using Windows Mobile Pocket Pc

FieldSoftware Products printing products use the Bluetooth "Serial Port Profile" (SPP). Unfortunately, there is no standard method to find your Bluetooth printer and begin printing... each device contains a Bluetooth stack/driver that determines the steps. There are two main stacks currently available... one from Microsoft and one from WIDCOMM/Broadcom. Below are step-by-step instructions for printing with the Microsoft and WIDCOMM stacks. Note that these may change for different versions of the Bluetooth stacks or for different manufacturers. Consult the documentation for your device for specific details on your device.

Identifying your device''s Bluetooth stack: There is no sure steps to identify a Bluetooth stack on a device. Below are steps for identifying current WIDCOMM and Microsoft stacks at the time this page is published. Note that these may not identify earlier or later versions of the same BT stacks.

Device detection: standard & mobile web applications


I would like to host standard web pages as well as mobile web pages on a single website/virtual directory.


Is there a simple way of sniffing out the machine type and then presenting either web or mobile application depending on the device?

Or is there a better solution other than creating separate website?

Many thanks

Wireless Web: Microsoft Mobile Internet Toolkit Lets Your Web Application Target Any Device Anywhere


If you've built Web sites using ASP.NET, you'll welcome the Microsoft Mobile Internet Toolkit (MMIT). MMIT extends the Visual Studio .NET IDE you already know by providing new controls for handheld devices letting you easily develop applications for wireless devices. This means you can write less code while adapting it to more devices. Not only does MMIT integrate with Visual Studio .NET, it extends ASP.NET as well. This article gives you the background you need to write, test, and deploy a site with MMIT and make all your code able to target specific devices for a custom fit.

Detecting mobile device user agents in ASP.NET (Android)



Last week Android updated their software (changed the display from 480px to 800px) so all the mobile tweaks we made for our apps are no longer work on Droid Phones.

I would need to identify the User Agent(e.g. Android) and switch style sheets depending. (We don't want to redirect to another page, just switch style sheets).

Anybody know any lightweight solution ?

Thanks in Advance.

(we were using 480px pixels to identify if the user was coming from iPhone or Android and switched stylesheets accordingly.  If I changed it to 800px some desktop monitors and the iPad would see the mobile version and not the desktop version. Not good.)



Backbutton on mobile device


I have a mobile web application published at www.tofilmfest.ca/tiffwidget.  It has one form where you input criteria for what you're looking fork, and another one that displays the results.  The results form displays two backbuttons for returning to the input page and they work fine.

The problem is when you return to the input page using the HARDWARE backbutton on your mobile device.  When you do this, the input page reappears, but is no longer functional -- you have to refresh it to get it working again.  The functional software backbuttons use redirection to return to the input page.  Can anybody think of a workaround that will enable the input page to remain responsive irregardless of how you return to it?

baton files and schemas - transfer protocols

Anyone here ever hear of "baton files"?  We're supposed to use them in an ETL project.  It's apparently an old mainframe trick - you transfer the big, fat data file first foo.csv, and when that's done you transfer a tiny baton file, foo.baton (or other suffix).  The baton file's mere existence tells you the big file has finished transfering in, which might otherwise be hard to tell.  For extra credit the baton file can contain useful information like a rowcount and/or some aggregates or checksums of the accompanying data. OK, I 've seen that before, but apparently there's a second part of this kind of protocol, where they also send along a table schema in SQL.  We have one project suggesting that this be checked against our table formats every time, in production, in case the sender unexpectedly changes format (and yet is good enough to send us the changed and accurate schema!). Anyone ever hear of this second part, and can you say what the origin might be? And do you think it's a good idea? Thanks. Josh
