Bluetooth and WSAQUERYSET for Set Service

Bluetooth uses the WSAQUERYSET structure to facilitate the discovery of devices and services in the Bluetooth namespace, NS_BTH.

The WSASetService function uses the WSAQUERYSET structure to register or remove service instances in the Bluetooth namespace. The following table lists member values in the WSAQUERYSET structure.

MemberRequired value (input)Output
dwSizeMust be set to sizeof(WSAQUERYSET). Used as a versioning mechanism.None.
dwOutputFlagsNot used.None.
lpszServiceInstanceNameOptional, but recommended. Used to construct the Bluetooth ServiceName attribute.None.
lpServiceClassIdRequired. GUID corresponding to the service class. This value should correspond to a GUID from the Bluetooth Assigned Numbers document for known profiles, or a unique application-generated UUID for applications that are not profile based. Used to construct a ServiceClassIdList attribute sequence with this as its only member.None.
lpVersionNot used.None.
lpszCommentOptional. Used to construct the Bluetooth ServiceDescription attribute.None.
dwNameSpaceNamespace in which to constrain the service. Must be NS_BTH.None.
lpNSProviderIdNot required.None.
lpszContextNot used.None.
dwNumberOfProtocolsNot used.None.
lpafpProtocolsNot used.None.
lpszQueryStringNot used.None.
dwNumberOfCsAddrsNumber of addresses to register. Must be 1.None.
lpcsaBufferRequired if lpBlob has not been populated with a raw SDP stream. Pointer to a CSADDR_INFO structure with its LocalAddr.lpSockaddr member pointing to the SOCKADDR_BTH where the server is listening for connections. The getsockname function can be used to return the SOCKADDR_BTH structure for a bound socket. Information in the lpcsaBuffer member is used by the system to construct the Bluetooth ProtocolDescriptorList SDP attribute. The protocol and port provided in lpcsaBuffer must be unique (not previously registered), and are used to index the record for subsequent calls to delete. Used to construct the Bluetooth ProtocolDescriptorList attribute of the SDP record.None.
lpBlobOptional. Pointer to a BLOB structure that points to a BTH_SET_SERVICE structure, enabling the client to provide a Bluetooth-specific structure containing a binary SDP record constructed by the application. If lpBlob is provided to the WSASetService function, all other members of the WSAQUERYSET structure except dwSize and dwNameSpace are ignored. See Bluetooth and BLOB for more information. Submitting a binary SDP record is necessary in many cases, because a limited number of SDP attributes can be converted from the WSAQUERYSET structure, and strings are converted only to default language UTF-8 encoding. If the optional BLOB and BTH_SET_SERVICE structures have been provided on input, along with the ULONG version and HANDLE values which must be pointed to by BTH_SET_SERVICE, the version is updated to contain the BTH_SDP_VERSION value for the Bluetooth Windows Sockets provider, and the handle is provided, which is required to subsequently delete the record.


Note  To remove a service, the only required members in the BTH_SET_SERVICE structure are the pSdpVersion and pRecordHandle members.
