    The problem here is that one must click a button to display the alert. What if I want to display the alert programmatically when some event happens. for example, I discover a Bluetooth device? The alert tells the user info about the device and asks if a connection is desired, If a YES is clicked, a BLuetooth method is called to connect to the device.
