How to use "characteristic.write(value)"

  • What i want is when the Lopy ble received a string then reply a string.
    so i think i need to use "" and "characteristic.write(value)" in class GATTCCharacteristic.
    How to use them?

  • @jmarcelino
    Thank you,it works now. The lightBlue get the reply in reads.

  • @DongYin
    There you set reply value using characteristic.value(b'Your reply') so next time your client (the other device) reads it will get your reply.

    Thank you for explain .These are my codes.

    from network import Bluetooth
    #from machine import Pin
    #TestButton = Pin('P23', mode=Pin.IN, pull=Pin.PULL_UP)
    bluetooth = Bluetooth()
    bluetooth.set_advertisement(name='LoPy', service_uuid=b'1234567890123456')
    def conn_cb (bt_o):
        events =
        if  events & Bluetooth.CLIENT_CONNECTED:
            print("Client connected")
        elif events & Bluetooth.CLIENT_DISCONNECTED:
            print("Client disconnected")
    bluetooth.callback(trigger=Bluetooth.CLIENT_CONNECTED | Bluetooth.CLIENT_DISCONNECTED, handler=conn_cb)
    srv1 = bluetooth.service(uuid=b'1234567890123456', isprimary=True)
    chr1 = srv1.characteristic(uuid=b'2234567890123456', value=6)
    def char1_cb(chr):
        print("Write request with value = {}".format(chr.value()))
        if chr.value() == b'\xdd' :
            print("reply here")
            #reply here
    char1_cb = chr1.callback(trigger=Bluetooth.CHAR_WRITE_EVENT, handler=char1_cb)

    so, how to use CHAR_READ_EVENT at #reply here .

  • That is one way to do it, where the LoPy connects to a service and characteristic on the other device.

    In that case you'd usually setup a NOTIFY callback on the LoPy with:

    characteristic.callback(trigger=Bluetooth.CHAR_NOTIFY_EVENT, handler=YourFunctionHere)

    When the other device writes to the characteristic you'll get a notification that the value has changed and you can then it.

    After that you can characteristic.write(b'Your Reply') if you're reusing the same characteristic.

    As I said this is just one of the ways to do it. Another would be to do the opposite, have the other device connect to the LoPy and accept a write from the other device (via a Bluetooth.CHAR_WRITE_EVENT event callback) and then reply to a read from it (a Bluetooth.CHAR_READ_EVENT event). For that you could use something like the GATTSCharacteristic example:
