Description

This unit defines an implementation of TTetheringCustomStorage that uses an INI file for persisting the pairing information of a tethering manager between sessions.

You can use this unit in your tethering-enabled applications to provide persistence for pairing information for your application.

To use this unit:

  1. Create a tethering-enabled application. See Adding App Tethering to Your Application.
  2. Add a new unit to your project with the code below. You can name this new unit TetheringIniFileStorage.pas.
  3. In the unit of your project that contains the TTetheringManager component:
    1. Add a reference to the TetheringIniFileStorage unit.
    2. Select your TTetheringManager component and, on the Object Inspector, double-click the OnRequestStorage event.
    3. Implement its event handler as follows:
AStorage := TTetheringIniFileStorage.Create(TPath.GetDocumentsPath + PathDelim + 'file.ini');
Notes:
  • The path to the INI file in the code above is just an example.
  • To use system path functions such as GetDocumentsPath, include a reference to the System.IOUtils unit in your uses clause.

Your TTetheringManager component now persists its data to the specified INI file. For more information, see TTetheringCustomStorage.
