Detailed Description

This class provides several helper functions to generate properly formatted GAP Advertising and Scan Response data payloads.

Note:
See Bluetooth Specification 4.0 (Vol. 3), Part C, Section 11 and 18 for further information on Advertising and Scan Response data.
Advertising and Scan Response Payloads
Advertising data and Scan Response data are organized around a set of data types called 'AD types' in Bluetooth 4.0 (see the Bluetooth Core Specification v4.0, Vol. 3, Part C, Sections 11 and 18).
Each AD type has it's own standardized 'assigned number', as defined by the Bluetooth SIG: https://www.bluetooth.org/en-us/specification/assigned-numbers/generic-access-profile
For convenience sake, all appropriate AD types have been encapsulated into GapAdvertisingData::DataType.
Before the AD Types and their payload (if any) can be inserted into the Advertising or Scan Response frames, they need to be formatted as follows:
  • Record length (1 byte)
  • AD Type (1 byte)
  • AD payload (optional, only present if record length > 1)
This class takes care of properly formatting the payload, performs some basic checks on the payload length, and tries to avoid common errors like adding an exclusive AD field twice in the Advertising or Scan Response payload.
