    where would you use this functionality ? Usually you should ask users for making the connection, or before sending anything out..

    Hi Yucca,
    I am doing a Bluetooth chat application.I have made it in such a way that the the application has menus like start receiver, connect and send message.
    If one of the user starts the receiver, the other user have to connect to it by the notifier plugin.I think its an awkward method,coz the users doesnt know who started the receiver and who want to connect to it.So i just want to remove this and make the application so that the user can chat without any connect or start receiver inputs.
    I want to make the connections to be made in the background so that the user doesnt worry about it.I hope u understood my problem
    Thanks for your reply
    I hope to hear from you

    I think there might be problems on the auto connection, at least one party must start connecting and select the device before anything can be done. Anyway, you could make the application to start listening when it is started, and then cancel listening, when user selects the "connect" menu option. this way only one user would need to do anything.

    Then , you could play around with the security settings to either enable or disable the query-dialog shown when accepting the connection request in the listening end.

    I think you can just call and start the receiving server, right after finalizing all construction tasks. So have a look what function is called with the menu option, and copy them into the end of your construction function.
