Detailed Description

The QBluetoothServiceInfo class enables access to the attributes of a Bluetooth service.

QBluetoothServiceInfo provides information about a service offered by a Bluetooth device. In addition it can be used to register new services on the local device. Note that such a registration only affects the Bluetooth SDP entries. Any server listening for incoming connections (e.g an RFCOMM server) must be started before registerService() is called. Deregistration must happen in the reverse order.

QBluetoothServiceInfo is not a value type in the traditional sense. All copies of the same service info object share the same data as they do not detach upon changing them. This ensures that two copies can (de)register the same Bluetooth service.

On iOS, this class cannot be used because the platform does not expose an API which may permit access to QBluetoothServiceInfo related features.

Member Function Documentation

QBluetoothServiceInfo::QBluetoothServiceInfo()

Construct a new invalid QBluetoothServiceInfo;

QBluetoothServiceInfo::QBluetoothServiceInfo(const QBluetoothServiceInfo &other)

Construct a new QBluetoothServiceInfo that is a copy of other.

The two copies continue to share the same underlying data which does not detach upon write.

QBluetoothServiceInfo::~QBluetoothServiceInfo()

Destroys the QBluetoothServiceInfo object.

QVariant QBluetoothServiceInfo::attribute(quint16 attributeId) const

Returns the value of the attribute attributeId.

See also setAttribute().

QList<quint16> QBluetoothServiceInfo::attributes() const

Returns a list of all attribute ids that the QBluetoothServiceInfo object has.

bool QBluetoothServiceInfo::contains(quint16 attributeId) const

Returns true if the QBluetoothServiceInfo object contains the attribute attributeId, otherwise returns false.

QBluetoothDeviceInfo QBluetoothServiceInfo::device() const

Returns the address of the Bluetooth device that provides this service.

See also setDevice().

bool QBluetoothServiceInfo::isComplete() const

Returns true if the QBluetoothServiceInfo object is considered complete, otherwise returns false.

A complete QBluetoothServiceInfo object contains a ProtocolDescriptorList attribute.

bool QBluetoothServiceInfo::isRegistered() const

Returns true if the service information is registered with the platform's Service Discovery Protocol (SDP) implementation, otherwise returns false.

bool QBluetoothServiceInfo::isValid() const

Returns true if the QBluetoothServiceInfo object is valid, otherwise returns false.

An invalid QBluetoothServiceInfo object will have no attributes.

QBluetoothServiceInfo::Sequence QBluetoothServiceInfo::protocolDescriptor(QBluetoothUuid::ProtocolUuid protocol) const

Returns the protocol parameters as a QBluetoothServiceInfo::Sequence for protocol protocol.

An empty QBluetoothServiceInfo::Sequence is returned if protocol is not supported.

int QBluetoothServiceInfo::protocolServiceMultiplexer() const

This is a convenience function. Returns the protocol/service multiplexer for services which support the L2CAP protocol, otherwise returns -1.

This function is equivalent to extracting the information from QBluetoothServiceInfo::Sequence returned by QBluetoothServiceInfo::attribute(QBluetoothServiceInfo::ProtocolDescriptorList).

bool QBluetoothServiceInfo::registerService(const QBluetoothAddress &localAdapter = QBluetoothAddress())

Registers this service with the platform's Service Discovery Protocol (SDP) implementation, making it findable by other devices when they perform service discovery. Returns true if the service is successfully registered, otherwise returns false. Once registered changes to the record cannot be made. The service must be unregistered and registered again with the changes.

The localAdapter parameter determines the local Bluetooth adapter under which the service should be registered. If localAdapter is null the default Bluetooth adapter will be used. If this service info object is already registered via a local adapter and this is function is called using a different local adapter, the previous registration is removed and the service reregistered using the new adapter.

void QBluetoothServiceInfo::removeAttribute(quint16 attributeId)

Removes the attribute attributeId from the QBluetoothServiceInfo object.

If the service information is already registered with the platforms SDP database, the database entry will not be updated until registerService() was called again.

int QBluetoothServiceInfo::serverChannel() const

This is a convenience function. Returns the server channel for services which support the RFCOMM protocol, otherwise returns -1.

This function is equivalent to extracting the information from QBluetoothServiceInfo::Sequence returned by QBluetoothServiceInfo::attribute(QBluetootherServiceInfo::ProtocolDescriptorList).

See also setServiceUuid() and attribute().

void QBluetoothServiceInfo::setAttribute(quint16 attributeId, const QVariant &value)

Sets the attribute identified by attributeId to value.

If the service information is already registered with the platform's SDP database, the database entry will not be updated until registerService() was called again.
