    Hi everyone,

    I have the question as described in the subject.

    I have this code in manifest:

    AddReceiverText(sBT, <intent-filter>
    <action android:name=
    <action android:name=
    And this code in StartService

    If StartingIntent.Action = "android.bluetooth.device.action.ACL_CONNECTED" Then
            bIn = 
    Else If StartingIntent.Action = "android.bluetooth.device.action.ACL_DISCONNECTED" Then  
            bIn = 
    End If

    It works perfect and detects bluetooth connection and bluetooth disconnection.
    The problem is that Android 8.1 kills the service after some time and to face that I use the StartServiceAt. My question is if there is a way to distinguish if the service was started from bluetooth connection/disconnection or from StartServiceAt in order to run different code in each case...

    Thanks in advance

    startingintent.action will probably never ACL_CONNECTED or ACL_DISCONNECTED

    Edit: Once again you were correct DonManfred. Thanks.
