Can WiFi be enabled/disabled programmatically in BB10?

Hi,

 

I would like to know whether there's an API that allows developers to enable/disable WiFi programmatically.

 

Thank you very much

Regards

Not sure, but you certainly  won't be able to override user settings. If the user has set WiFi  to off, then its off [otherwise there would be a security hole]. You are also unlikely to be able to turn it off as you could interfere with other apps [again a security hole].

 

In terms of what you can do, look at the QNetworkConfigurationManager class.
