Default Send any data to PC via cable?

Please Login to Remove!

There is a question.
I want to send some data to my desktop machine(PC) via the cable.and I want to know if we can do it and implement this function.
In my opinion,the desktop manager software can sync the data with other words,the desktop software can get the data from BB via cable,so I think we can write an application to send data from BB to desktop via cable.but I don't know how to do it.
So whehter it can do this or not?if yes,how to do?
Thanks for your attention.

Hi Confach,

Yes, you can transfer the data from PC to RIM device & vice-a-versa. Just go through the sample application "syncdemo".
At device-side: syncdemo.
At desktop-side: Desktop.dsw with Desktop.dll.

In this approach, u r required to write a dll at the desktop side, which will have the data collection logic. This dll will be get called by the Intellisync application of Desktop Manager at the time you collect the RIM device. (You can see the dll entry in the "Add-in module Configuration" window, after pressing "Configure Add-ins..." in Intellisync). On the other hand, you are reuired to write the device side application similar to the "syncdemo", which will accept the data arrived from desktop.

Another approach is to send via USB. Your desktop app initiates a connection via USB and your device is listening for a USB connection. Your device then writes data to the USB port. Check out the "USBDemo" sample app.
