BluetoothGetDeviceInfo function

The BluetoothGetDeviceInfo function retrieves information about a remote Bluetooth device. The Bluetooth device must have been previously identified through a successful device inquiry function call.

Syntax

DWORD BluetoothGetDeviceInfo(
  HANDLE                hRadio,
  BLUETOOTH_DEVICE_INFO *pbtdi
);

Parameters

hRadio

A handle to a local radio, obtained from a call to the BluetoothFindFirstRadio or similar functions, or from a call to the SetupDiEnumerateDeviceInterfaces function.

pbtdi

A pointer to a BLUETOOTH_DEVICE_INFO structure into which data about the first Bluetooth device will be placed. For more information, see Remarks.

Return Value

Returns ERROR_SUCCESS upon success, indicating that data about the remote Bluetooth device was retrieved. Returns error codes upon failure. The following table lists common error codes associated with the BluetoothGetDeviceInfo function.

Return code Description
ERROR_REVISION_MISMATCH
The size of the BLUETOOTH_DEVICE_INFO is not compatible. Check the dwSize member of the BLUETOOTH_DEVICE_INFO structure.
ERROR_NOT_FOUND
The radio is not known by the system, or the Address member of the BLUETOOTH_DEVICE_INFO structure is all zeros.
ERROR_INVALID_PARAMETER
The pbtdi parameter is NULL.

Remarks

The Bluetooth device for which data is obtained must have been previously identified through a successful device inquiry function call.

In the BLUETOOTH_DEVICE_INFO structure pointed to by pbtdi, the dwSize member must be equivalent to the size, in bytes, of the structure. The Address member of the BLUETOOTH_DEVICE_INFO structure must contain the Bluetooth address of the remote device.
