TSL ASCII 2 Software Development Kit – for Xamarin .NET Standard Development
(Please login to download this file.)
Icon 2.1.0 November 28, 2022

This release provides compatibility with the Google 2022 API requirements for Android (API Level 31).

The sample project in the SDK release has been updated to use the Tsl.AsciiProtocol v1.6.0 NuGet package – which is required when targeting API level 31+.

When Android 12+ or later is targeted, the following permissions must be both declared in the AndroidManifest.xml and obtained at runtime:

  • Manifest.Permission.BluetoothConnect
  • Manifest.Permission.BluetoothScan

Until these runtime permissions are obtained from the user, no Bluetooth® devices will be available.

We provide an example of how to obtain these permissions in the Sample.Connections.Forms.Android sample project.

Icon 2.5.0 October 21, 2022

The TSL Android SDK has been updated to meet the Google Play Android 12 (API level 31) requirement that comes into effect on November 1, 2022.

If your app is targeting API level 31+ then you will need to update your app to use the Rfid.AsciiProtocol library  (v3.0.0), included in the latest SDK.

You will also need to update your app to issue a request for Bluetooth® permissions, where appropriate.

The latest SDK contains updated Sample Projects to demonstrate one way to do this – all built against the latest API Level 33.

In addition, 3 Sample projects (Inventory, ReadWrite and ConfigureBarcode) have been re-written to demonstrate the use of the SDK in the latest Android Studio, Basic Activity app template.

This release also addresses a null pointer error that occurred when running previous Rfid.AsciiProtocol libraries (v2.5.0 or lower) on Android 12+ devices.

Icon 1.6.1 July 8, 2021

The v1.6.0 release of the TSL iOS SDK is here! With a new FindTag Sample project (implemented in Swift/SwiftUI) and an updated framework supporting ASCII Protocol 2.5, this release is a significant upgrade to our iOS SDK.

New commands include:
TSLFindTagCommand (for series 21xx Readers) - controls the Reader's tag finder operation
TSLBlockPermalockTransponderCommand - to allow tags to be block permalocked
TSLAutorunCommand - allows the SD-Card's 'auto.txt' file to be read, written or deleted.

The latest TSLAsciiCommands framework is now available in the new XCFramework format for Xcode 12 users. We have also audited the API to improve type-safety in Swift apps.

Finally, the included documentation has been completely overhauled and now provides a fresh, modern look, an updated 'Getting Started' section, improved enum type documentation and both ObjC and Swift interfaces for all commands.

*The v1.6.1 update provides XCFramework ObjC project compatibility and minor documentation updates.

Icon 1.2 July 18, 2019

The v1.2 release of the TSL cross-platform, Xamarin SDK (for PCL-based projects) is now available. This release uses the Tsl.AsciiProtocol PCL library v1.3.6 (available via NuGet) which contains many new features including:

  • Full support for ASCII Protocol 2.5 - including the new FindTagCommand to simplify the implementation of tag finding.
  • USB support for UWP-based projects
  • A new connection mechanism (AsciiTransportsManager) while retaining ReaderConnectionManager to maintain full backwards compatibility with existing projects.
  • Sequencing of synchronously executed ExecuteCommand() calls to eliminate cross thread "Command is already executing" exceptions
  • New Bluetooth pairing support via the BluetoothSecurity class
  • HostBarcodeHandler a helper class to initiate a barcode scan on the terminal from reader trigger for supported terminals

The Sample Projects, in this release, have all been updated to demonstrate USB support for UWP Apps and fix minor bugs. The new, cross-platform, .NET Standard SDK will be released shortly and we recommend that it is used for all new projects.
