MergEXT -How to stop scanning using MergBLE

Post by michaeldaleyjl » Thu Feb 11, 2016 3:41 am

Started scanning with mergBLEScanForPeripheralsWithServices.
Tried stopping the scan with mergBLEStopScanningForPeripherals, but the scanning continues.

What am I doing wrong?

That's a good question...

One thing to consider is there are various asynchronous things going on here so the call to stop the scan may happen while there are some mergBLEDidDiscoverPeripheral messages in the pipeline so they may come in after. So one thing to test is if it stops eventually rather than immediately.

Cheers

Monte....after 30 minutes, the scanning continues and my observation is it does not stop. I need a way to stop it, to start a new scan with different UUIDs, so i was relying on it stopping. It appears that the stop scanning is not working.

Do you have an function that is opposite of the Initialize function that could be used to stop all activities immediately?

Hmm... OK... have you checked if it is throwing an error?

Code: Select all

try
  mergBLEStopScanningForPeripherals
catch e
  answer e
end try
