I hadn't been able to "1 click" dial a phone number since paradox 7 - 16 bit. Since then, I went cable modem (no more modem anyway) and in the last week developed a quick "dialer" of sorts (if focus is on a record with a valid phone number, a "Dial" pushbutton appears).

It works - but it's pretty ugly. My big problem is that for each tone (pair) to be played, OLE launches the media player - "plays" 1 number, exits, then must launch again to play the second number, etc.

My question then: Does anyone know how to or if its even possible to launch the media player once - then pass the tones to it (wav files) with appropriate waits in between? (-And when done - then close the media player-)

Thanks.

Have you tried writing the WAVs to a playlist, then loading the playlist into the media play. Seems like it could be done, though I haven't researched it. I assume the Windows phone dialer is not an option.

In case the Windows Dialer IS an option, this code 'should' work.



Uses Tapi32
tapiRequestMakeCall(stNumber CPTR, stDummy1 CPTR, stDummy2 CPTR, stDummy3
CPTR) cLong
endUses

if tapiRequestMakeCall("613-728-7180","","Corel","") <> 0 then
msgStop("ERROR!","Could not dial phone!")
endIf

Langley, 1st, thanks for putting me onto the "playlist" path. There are definitely some advantages to it and one (suprising) disadvantage - speed. Launching the wav player via OLE and playing successive 60 mSec tunes is much faster! The playlist files themselves are very easy to work with and I do intend to continue playing with them.

Also, thanks for the syntax on the tapi code. I immediately put a copy in my "Hints" table.

Thanks again.
