I have a working BLE project, but need to add test routines for regulatory testing, namely the CyBle_StartReceiverTest and CyBle_StartTransmitterTest. I added calls to these routines and the routines are defined in the generated BLE_Stack.h file, but the source is not found. Also a right click on the BLE icon in the top design produces a datasheet with these routines listed and how they work.

I updated the components to the latest, I've done a clean build in the application and the stack. I've removed the generated file folders in the application. I'm building debug code.

The BLE part is 4.1 and the Component major/minor version is 3/66

I'm building on Windows 64 bit version 1909Screenshot 2021-12-02 121117.png

I'm working on a version of the project that I can share. I've also contacted support directly, but have not heard anything back.

Hello.

Just a suggestion...
The component in schematic is named BLE (not CyBLE).  But s/w is calling CyBLE...
I'd suggest dropping the Cy in the s/w and just use the BLE... name.

Hi,

That will not cause any issue in this case because all these API's will be predefined in library files so no need to drop Cy while calling these API's in project.

Hello.

Sorry, but I find your statement confusing.  At first you say is doesn't matter, then you say need to drop Cy.  Which is it?

I agree the API's will be auto-generated, but they will also have the prefix of the component name.  The Cy has to be dropped.

I tested this just now and I get the same error as nmay, "undefined reference".  Conclusion: drop the Cy.

Hopefully nmay will respond with their results.

Hi,

Sorry for the confusion created by my post. In Psoc creator if you right click on the ble component and open datasheet you can see that API's starting with CyBle so you have to use as it is how they have mentioned in the datasheet and no need to drop Cy or use prefix of the component name while using these API's in project.

Please can you share your project where you are facing this issue so that we can reproduce it at our end.

Hello.

I stand corrected wrt the BLE component and, shame on Cypress for making the BLE component unique.

From BLE Component datasheet:
Note: All BLE Component API names begin with CyBle_. This is a unique feature of the BLE
Component, and allows only one instance of the Component to be placed in your design.

This deviates from all other components when they are renamed in the schematic.  For example, in my sample project attached, I renamed the TCPWM_1 to GEN.  When built, it throws the "undefined reference" error.  The error goes away when the I use the GEN_ prefix in software.  And that's how all components with API's have behaved in my experience.  Evidently, the BLE component is unique with this aspect.

I also experimented with BLE component re-naming, and it does not matter what the name is in the schematic.  The API's will always use the CyBle_ prefix correctly.  Contrary to your last statement about the component name, I was not successful to use the schematic component name in place of CyBle_ prefix.  Maybe I was doing something wrong?  Maybe this is something you can also try.

Thank you PratikshaV for enlightening me on this component (which I've never used before).

Back to the original question from nmay:
  I guess, somewhere along the way, there is a missing Include file(s), or the directory path to the file(s) is not correct.  I was able to build the BLE Mouse example project and inserted the function call CyBle_StartReceiverTest without any issues.
