bluemon --- DBUS interface to bluemon(1)


This manual page documents briefly the DBUS interface to bluemon(1)


Bluemon exposes 2 signals and 1 method. The bluemon process is registered on the system bus as cx.ath.matthew.bluemon.server. The exposed object is /cx/ath/matthew/bluemon/Bluemon and the exposed interface is cx.ath.matthew.bluemon.Bluemon. The signal interface is cx.ath.matthew.bluemon.ProximitySignal and have the names Connect and Disconnect which both have 1 parameter, which is the string representation of the bluetooth device ID which has been connected or disconnected. The method has the signature Status(IN STRING address, OUT STRING address, OUT BOOLEAN status, OUT UINT32 level). The in parameter may be blank in which case the first connected device will be returned. If status is true (device is connected) then the address and level will correspond to the device address and the reported link quality. Otherwise they will set to the address asked for and -1 respectively.
