Android Question

Android: Turn On/Off WiFi Hotspot Programmatically on Android Marshmallow (6.0)

I have come across this thread (Android: How to Enable/Disable Wifi or Internet Connection Programmatically) which is very similar to what I wanted to ask. I have tried the solution provided by an answer posted by Ashish Sahu (http://stackoverflow.com/users/1780737/ashish-sahu) which seems to work perfectly on other Android versions aside from Marshmallow (6.0).

Is there anyway to toggle and setup a WiFi Hotspot on Android Marshmallow? I tried using mHotspot (http://www.mhotspot.com/) which can do the job on Android Marshmallow but I just don't know how to implement it.

Thanks in advance.

        }

        new wifiControllerTask(this, v2, false, context).execute(new Void[0]);
    }
}

Also, in main Activity you should call like this:

    WifiAPController wifiAPController  = new WifiAPController();
    wifiAPController.wifiToggle("mHotspot", "12345678", wifiManager, context);

Don't forget about permissions:

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_WIFI_STATE" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.CHANGE_WIFI_STATE" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_SETTINGS" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.CHANGE_NETWORK_STATE" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE" />
