Description - Write a VB.NET class/s based on a Bluetooth component I will supply which keeps track of bluetooth devices which are in range.
Detail - I am writing an application which has multiple forms all of which need to be notified of new bluetooth devices appearing in range AND also get a list of all current devices.
Proposed solution - A parent class is created which exposes some events (e.g. NewDeviceFound) and some methods (e.g. GetDeviceList) which can be instantiated by any class/form. The parent class will be responsbile for keeping a list of inrange devices AND removing them. So I guess some peiodic scanning will be required of devices already found to ensure they are still there.
Lanugauge - VB.NET only. Result must be a usable class, not some code on a form
Testing - You must supply an MDI app that can be used to launch multiple forms all containing the listener and showing some signs of monitoring in realtime what new devices are appearing.
Bluetooth component - You will NOT be required to write low level bluetooth code. This will be provided by a 3rd party. <[url removed, login to view]> I will supply the component to the winning bidder.
Requirements - Anyone taking this job will need to have good experience of Bluetooth, a couple of bluetooth devices (e.g. a phone).
Methods/properties/events - It is not clear the exact number that will be needed. This detail will come out in testing. It is expected that the coder will produce additional code as required to fully meet the requirement. However this work will be reasonablly constrained.
Delivery - I would like to see the code as it progresses so that feedback can be given from the early stages to save revision work later.
