Programming details

Languages: C++, Visual Basic Script (VBS), CMD batch
Description: The program uses a series of internal services and commands in Windows to create and manage hotspots, and also to detect connected devices, identified with a device name, IP address and MAC address. A detailed technical manual will be released sometime in the future.

Additional behavioral details

The program detects changes about the state of the activated hotspot and the number of connected clients by procesing outputs of Command Prompt commands.

These commands will be executed silently at the following refresh rates:
- 2 seconds when a hotspot is activated and the tab displayed is 'Connected clients'
- 5 seconds when a hotspot is activated and the selected tab is not 'Connected clients'
- 7 seconds when the application is minimized to System Tray.

For each refresh you could see flashes (300ms - 1 second) of Command Prompt appearing in the list with running processes (1 or 2 instances) in Task Manager. This behaviour is normal. In the new versions to come this aspect of functionality will be also improved.
