Pairing a bluetooth device (and some more stuff)

Recommended Posts

jazzor

Hi guys, girls, and wizards of AutoIt :)

Im in need of automation for my htpc:

I want it to search for and automatically pair with a specific bluetooth device (a Wiimote in this case) using the default Windows bluetooth radio, and then start another program (GlovePie).

With closing the other program, i want the script to remove the paired device and then exit.

Because I never worked with the WinAPI in Autoit, I don't have any clue on how to get this started :-/

I found some threads of MKISH who does a really good job, but honestly I dont understand that much of the code.

As I'm very interested in learning and getting better in AutoIt, I'm not searching for anyone coding this thing for me, I'm searching for the right direction and maybe your help :)

Thanks in advance! :D

Hi, and welcome to the forum!

So you want your pc to pair up with the wiimote and start an application, and if this application closes, unpair.

That it?

If so, start by using some code from the post you pointed out, make your own gui as you'd like

by then, someone with expertise on that area might give some input as to how to make the api calls.

In any case, better come back with some code for people to look at and give some input.

People don't normally create the code for the user from scratch.
