nRF24 Windows 10 IoT Core Test Harness

After modifying the Raspbery PI nRF24L01 shields I built a single page single button Universal Windows Platforms(UWP) test harness (using the techfooninja RF24 library) to check everything was working as expected.

I used a couple of Netduinos and Raspbery PI devices to as test clients.

public sealed partial class MainPage : Page
{
   private const byte ChipEnablePin = 25;
   private const byte ChipSelectPin = 0;
   private const byte InterruptPin = 17;
   private const byte Channel = 10;
   private RF24 radio;

   public MainPage()
   {
      this.InitializeComponent();

      this.radio = new RF24();

      this.radio.OnDataReceived += this.Radio_OnDataReceived;
      this.radio.OnTransmitFailed += this.Radio_OnTransmitFailed;
      this.radio.OnTransmitSuccess += this.Radio_OnTransmitSuccess;

      this.radio.Initialize(ChipEnablePin, ChipSelectPin, InterruptPin);
      this.radio.Address = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes("Base1");
      this.radio.Channel = Channel;
      this.radio.PowerLevel = PowerLevel.Low;
      this.radio.DataRate = DataRate.DR250Kbps;

      this.radio.IsEnabled = true;

      Debug.WriteLine("Address: " + Encoding.UTF8.GetString(this.radio.Address));
      Debug.WriteLine("Channel: " + this.radio.Channel);
      Debug.WriteLine("DataRate: " + this.radio.DataRate);
      Debug.WriteLine("PA: " + this.radio.PowerLevel);
      Debug.WriteLine("IsAutoAcknowledge: " + this.radio.IsAutoAcknowledge);
      Debug.WriteLine("IsDynamicAcknowledge: " + this.radio.IsDynamicAcknowledge);
      Debug.WriteLine("IsDynamicPayload: " + this.radio.IsDynamicPayload);
      Debug.WriteLine("IsEnabled: " + this.radio.IsEnabled);
      Debug.WriteLine("IsInitialized: " + this.radio.IsInitialized);
      Debug.WriteLine("IsPowered: " + this.radio.IsPowered);
   }

   private void Radio_OnDataReceived(byte[] data)
   {
     string dataUTF8 = Encoding.UTF8.GetString(data);

     Debug.WriteLine(string.Format("Received: {0}", dataUTF8));
   }

   private void buttonSend_Click(object sender, Windows.UI.Xaml.RoutedEventArgs e)
   {
      this.radio.SendTo(Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes("Duino"), Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(DateTime.UtcNow.ToString("yy-MM-dd hh:mm:ss"))) ;
   }

   private void Radio_OnTransmitSuccess()
   {
      Debug.WriteLine("Radio_OnTransmitSuccess");
   }

   private void Radio_OnTransmitFailed()
   {
      Debug.WriteLine("Radio_OnTransmitFailed");
   }
}

The Raspberry PI could reliably receive and transmit messages.
