I need to get the name of the currently connected Wi-Fi hotspot, e.g. "BT OpenZone"
I have been told it can be done with CaptiveNetwork specifically CNCopyCurrentNetworkInfo
My code so far:
// Get the dictionary containing the captive network infomation
CFDictionaryRef captiveNtwrkDict = CNCopyCurrentNetworkInfo(kCNNetworkInfoKeySSID);
// Get the count of the key value pairs to test if it has worked
int count = CFDictionaryGetCount(captiveNtwrkDict);
NSLog(@"Count of dict:%d",count);
You need to find out which networks are available, and then pass them into CNCopyCurrentNetworkInfo. For example:
CFArrayRef myArray = CNCopySupportedInterfaces(); CFDictionaryRef myDict = CNCopyCurrentNetworkInfo(CFArrayGetValueAtIndex(myArray, 0));
...and you can then use the kCNNetworkInfoKeySSID on the dictionary you've got back (myDict) to find out the SSID. Don't forget to release/manage memory appropriately.
