Is there a way of dialling a phone number from a MIDP 1.0 midlet. The J2ME API says the following for the "Input Constraints" section for javax.microedition.lcdui.TextField API :
The user is allowed to enter a phone number. The phone number is a special case, since a phone-based implementation may be linked to the native phone dialing application. The implementation may automatically start a phone dialer application that is initialized so that pressing a single key would be enough to make a call.
I tried creating a form and adding a TextField to it with an intial phone number, but it behaves like a normal text box with the Edit option.
I would appreciate any help on this. Sample could would be of greatest help.
The input constraint PHONENUMBER leads to the access of the phonebook on some phones when the textfield is clicked by the end user. In order to call a phone number the MIDlet the phone has to be MIDP 2.0 compliant which supports the platform request API to call phone numbers, open web browsers etc.
