Requires: Base Development System (Windows)

Creates a service for a Bluetooth server and returns a Bluetooth channel the server can use to listen for inbound connections.


address is the address of the Bluetooth server. An example of a Bluetooth address is 00:07:E0:07:D7:50.
uuid identifies the service. You can assign duplicate UUIDs, but National Instruments does not recommend assigning duplicate UUIDs. If a Bluetooth client requests a UUID that multiple services use on a Bluetooth server, the server uses the first UUID it encounters. The UUID must be in GUID format. An example of a UUID in GUID format is B62C4E8D-62CC-404b-BBBF-BF3E3BBB1374.
error in describes error conditions that occur before this node runs. This input provides standard error in functionality.
service description contains the name and description of the service uuid indicates.
name is the name of the service.
description is a short description of the service.
listener ID is a network connection refnum that uniquely identifies the listener.
channel returns the channel assigned to the listener.
error out contains error information. This output provides standard error out functionality.
