    The Bluetooth setPin method is defined as

    public boolean setPin (byte[] pin)

    RunMethod for "setPin" requires an Object so the parameter cannot be a byte array

    Error description: Cannot cast type: {Type=Byte,Rank=1, RemoteObject=True} to: {Type=Object,Rank=1, RemoteObject=True}

    If job.RunMethod("setPin", Array As Byte(pinBytes)) Then
    Word: )

    Is this the correct way to turn an array of bytes into an object?

    ' Note    Dim job As JavaObject - then set to bluetooth device
    Dim pinBytes() As  Byte = Array As Byte(0x31,0x32,0x33,0x34)

    If job.RunMethod("setPin"Array As Object(pinBytes)) Then
    Log("set pin returned true")
    Log("set pin returned false ")
    End If
    This code does run without an exception but always returns false!

    Your code is correct (though you are not turning it into an object, you are adding it to an array of objects).
