    Av and Blue tooth

    cabnetdesigner@yahoo.com

      At Devcon we learned that you could control the audio volume and even do a count thru filemaker using blue tooth buttons on a head set ect.. Is there anyway that you could enter a value viva blue tooth into a field.   Like from a lazier.  Hope Hope  This would be of great value.

          You can get input from a Blue-Tooth device, if this device is setup to be a HID device profile.

          In other words, it operates as a Human Interface Device - meaning that if a human could enter an input, then it can go into a field. That is how barcode scanners and RFID scanners work, like the ones I showed at my session about FileMaker Go 14 Crazy.

          You can use a Blue-Tooth keyboard to get input into a field. Depending on what you need, you can, with a Blue-tooth audio controls, like the ones you find on headsets, capture that input and script what it should mean.

            So the dimensions sent from a lazier measuring devise probably would not work

              It is possibly to get output from a laser distance measurement instrument like some of Leica's models. However, that would take some more work in order to make that happen...

                The Leica's are what I am working with, how difficult is it to get info from them

                  There are 2 ways; a native app, that can send data to FMGO or a device, that translate SPP into HID. Not a beginners task, but possible to do.
