Hi all,
I am writing a small bluetooth application to search for devices. However, the bluetooth adapter instance is always null. See the code below.



And the manifest file is


Message in the LogCat is null pointer exception at line 20 (refer BluetoothDemo.java)

What could be the reason?

Thanks in advance!

Are you running this code on your phone or on the adapter? I don't think that the adapter has bluetooth.

Also, you code could use some rearranging - you check adapter for null twice while you you could check just once, and you should not use adapter (lines 20-22) unless it is non-null

I tried running it on an emulator as well on the phone. Every time I try on the phone, it ends up with the message

The application has stopped unexpectedly. Please try later.

Yeah, i wrote it twice. it was a typo...the actual source has only one check.

By the way, BluetoothAdapter class is used to check if bluetooth is supported in the device.
 
If you send is by car it's a shipment, but if by ship it's cargo. This tiny ad told me:
