Tizen Native API  5.5
Bluetooth HID Host

Bluetooth HID(Human Interface Device) API provides functions for connecting to Bluetooth HID such as keyboards and mouse.

Required Header

#include <bluetooth.h>

Overview

In HID Profile, there are two roles - Host and Device. The Host is a device that uses or requests the services of a HID. The Device is a device that provides the service of human data input and output to and from th This API only supports Host role.

Related Features

This API is related with the following features:

It is recommended to design feature related codes in your application for reliability.

You can check if a device supports the related features for this API by using System Information, thereby controlling the procedure of your application.

To ensure your application is only running on the device with specific features, please define the features in your manifest file using the manifest editor in the SDK.

More details on featuring your application can be found from Feature Element.

Remarks:
This function must be called before Bluetooth HID Host starts.
You must free all resources of the Bluetooth service by calling bt_hid_host_deinitialize()
if Bluetooth HID Host service is no longer needed.
Parameters:
[in]connection_cbThe callback called when the connection state is changed
[in]user_dataThe user data to be passed to the callback function
Returns:
0 on success, otherwise a negative error value.
