PySide6.QtBluetooth.QBluetoothDeviceInfo.address()
Return type

PySide6.QtBluetooth.QBluetoothAddress

Returns the address of the device.

Note

On iOS and macOS this address is invalid. Instead deviceUuid() should be used. Those two platforms do not expose Bluetooth addresses for found Bluetooth devices and utilize unique device identifiers.

See also

deviceUuid()

PySide6.QtBluetooth.QBluetoothDeviceInfo.coreConfigurations()
Return type

CoreConfigurations

Returns the configuration of the device. If device configuration is not set, basic rate device configuration will be returned.

PySide6.QtBluetooth.QBluetoothDeviceInfo.deviceUuid()
Return type

PySide6.QtBluetooth.QBluetoothUuid

Returns a unique identifier for a Bluetooth device without an address.

In general, this uuid is invalid on every platform but macOS and iOS. It is used as a workaround for those two platforms as they do not provide Bluetooth addresses for found Bluetooth Low Energy devices. Every other platform uses address() instead.

setDeviceUuid()

PySide6.QtBluetooth.QBluetoothDeviceInfo.isCached()
Return type

bool

Returns true if the QBluetoothDeviceInfo object is created from cached data.

PySide6.QtBluetooth.QBluetoothDeviceInfo.isValid()
Return type

bool

Returns true if the QBluetoothDeviceInfo object is valid, otherwise returns false.

PySide6.QtBluetooth.QBluetoothDeviceInfo.majorDeviceClass()
Return type

MajorDeviceClass

Returns the major device class of the device.

PySide6.QtBluetooth.QBluetoothDeviceInfo.manufacturerData()
Return type

Returns the complete set of all manufacturer data.

Some devices may provide multiple manufacturer data entries per manufacturer ID. An example might be a Bluetooth Low Energy device that sends a different manufacturer data via advertisement packets and scan response packets respectively. Therefore the returned hash table may have multiple entries per manufacturer ID or hash key.

PySide6.QtBluetooth.QBluetoothDeviceInfo.manufacturerData(manufacturerId)
Parameters

manufacturerIdquint16

Return type

PySide6.QtCore.QByteArray

Returns the data associated with the given manufacturerId.

Manufacturer data is defined by the Supplement to the Bluetooth Core Specification and consists of two segments:

  • Manufacturer specific identifier code from the Assigned Numbers Company Identifiers document

  • Sequence of arbitrary data octets

The interpretation of the data octets is defined by the manufacturer specified by the company identifier.

Note

The remote device may provide multiple data entries per manufacturerId. This function only returns the first entry. If all entries are needed use manufacturerData() which returns a multi hash.

PySide6.QtBluetooth.QBluetoothDeviceInfo.manufacturerIds()
Return type

Returns all manufacturer ids attached to this device information.

PySide6.QtBluetooth.QBluetoothDeviceInfo.minorDeviceClass()
Return type

quint8

Returns the minor device class of the device. The actual information is context dependent on the value of majorDeviceClass() .

PySide6.QtBluetooth.QBluetoothDeviceInfo.setCached(cached)
Parameters

cached – bool

Used by the system to set the cached flag if the QBluetoothDeviceInfo is created from cached data. Cached information may not be as accurate as data read from an active device.

isCached()

PySide6.QtBluetooth.QBluetoothDeviceInfo.setCoreConfigurations(coreConfigs)
Parameters

coreConfigsCoreConfigurations

Sets the CoreConfigurations of the device to coreConfigs. This will help to make a difference between regular and Low Energy devices.

PySide6.QtBluetooth.QBluetoothDeviceInfo.setDeviceUuid(uuid)
Parameters

uuidPySide6.QtBluetooth.QBluetoothUuid

Sets the unique identifier uuid for Bluetooth devices, that do not have addresses. This happens on macOS and iOS, where the CoreBluetooth API hides addresses, but provides UUIDs to identify devices/peripherals.

This uuid is invalid on any other platform.

deviceUuid()

PySide6.QtBluetooth.QBluetoothDeviceInfo.setManufacturerData(manufacturerId, data)
Parameters
Return type

bool

Sets the advertised manufacturer data for the given manufacturerId. Returns true if it was inserted, false if it was already known.

Since Qt 5.14, different values for data and the same manufacturerId no longer replace each other but are accumulated for the duration of a device scan.

Parameters

name – str

Sets the name of the device.
