Questions:

I am connecting different devices with wifi hotspot AP programatically in my android app, How can i detect the clients being connected and disconnected and to the wifi hotspot AP i turned on programmatically ? Is there any callback event in Android API to give information regarding the connection or disconnection events of individual devices ?
Thanks in advance.

How to&Answers:

I think you need to use WifiP2pDevice
There you can check for available devices, and also if they are connected or not.

Try looking here at the available methods here

EDIT:

This Android Wifi Hotspot Manager Class have sample code to scan /proc/net/arp and ping each known client to detect livelihood.

You can implement that logic in a loop to emulate a Wifi Client disconnect event from driver.
