Hi Cypress Community,

   

I am working with a Client/Central-Server/Peripheral set up using 2 pioneer kits where I have the server sending notifications to the Client. 

   

Using the CySmart Tool and dongle and I can easily enable notifications on all the characteristics that I have set using the BLE circuit block.

   

When I try using the Client/Central pioneer kit to writeCharacterisitc values to ([01:00]) the various characteristics on the Server/Pheripheral pioneer kit, only the first one is enabled and the second returns an CYBLE_ERROR_INVALID_OPERATION. Even if I call the same function twice the first one is enabled and the second returns that error. It also doesn't even matter what handle I set.

   

I know it is not the Server/Peripheral side because the Dongle can enable notifications perfectly fine.

   

Any thoughts?

   

Thank you.

I believe you are writing 01:00 to CCCD's of the characteristic.

   

Can you try calling CyBle_ProcessEvents() after every characteristic write of individual CCCDs? Try enabling them from the main loop, not from the Event handler of the BLE component.

        Hello roit, Yes you're correct I'm writing 0100 to the CCCDs value. I do have them being enabled in the main loop and have tried cyble_processevents after each one as well. It's a very strange problem. The cysmart dongle setup has no problem which is frustrating .

Can you attach your project ZIP here so that forum members can give it a look?

John,

   

Can you replace the 'CyBle_GattcWriteCharacteristicDescriptors' API with following in your 'EnableFootPedalNotification' function?

   

apiResult = CyBle_GattcWriteCharacteristicDescriptors(cyBle_connHandle, &writeReqParam_FootPedal);

   

Similarly in 'EnableFootPedal2Notification'.

   

Also, I believe that 0x0025 and 0x0029 are the attribute handles of the CCCD of the Characteristics that you want the notification to be enable on.

In the BLEclient.c , the connection event stores the param as connHandle. Should I change it there too?

   

And yes you are correct, the 0x0025, 0x0029 are the attribute handles for the CCCD of those characteristics.

No need to change the connHandle value.

   

It is preferable to use cyBle_connHandle wherever it is required, as it is updated by the component directly.

So I tried changing the connHandle with cyBle_connHandle and I still receive the INVALID OPERATION error.

John,

   

Do you have a BLE sniffer with your? I am trying to see what kind of BLE activity happens on the second notification.

   

I don't have the server side of your project so I cannot test the changes. Can you try the following:

   

As you already know the attribute handles, you don't need to do Service discovery after connection.

   

Remove the 'apiResult = CyBle_GattcStartDiscovery(connHandle);' from the 'CYBLE_EVT_GAP_DEVICE_CONNECTED' event and move 'deviceConnected = TRUE;'  from 'CYBLE_EVT_GATTC_DISCOVERY_COMPLETE' to 'CYBLE_EVT_GAP_DEVICE_CONNECTED'.

   

The reason I am asking is because Creator 3.1 had some issue with Custom service discovery, just want to make sure that does not create a problem.

I tried using a co-workers BLE sniffer but had trouble getting it to sniff my projects packets. I might have to retry.

   

I posted the Server's project.

   

 

   

Thank you so much for your help by the way.
