    Nice work :)
    Pity I don't have bluetooth on my device, I'm still struggling to get IR to work with a Microchip.

    My personal opinion, not a pull down :sign0188:
    The text on your web site is a bit big though.

    Looks great!
    Two tips:
    1. Users with WM6 devices should use the Serial2 library instead (no nead for any other dll).
    2. Instead of all the Button??_Click subs you could do something like:
    Code:
    Sub App_Start
     ...
     
    For i = 3 to 75
       AddEvent(
    "Button" & i,Click,"KeyPad")
     
    Next
    End Sub
    Sub KeyPad
     [SIZE=
    2][COLOR=black]serial.Output (sender.Text)
     label1.Text = strlabeltemp & 
    sender.Text
    End Sub
    [/COLOR][/SIZE]

    Detecting bluetooth

    Is there an effective way to determine if the phone the program is running on has bluetooth?

    If I open a serial connection on say, port 8, is there an effective way to determine if the bluetooth module is responding?
