    Can one place a call via WRT?

    Hello,

    I want to write a WRT widget which places a call. At the native level, you could call DialNewCall() with the NetworkServices capability. I don't see the equivalent with the WRT. Is there an API on WRT for this?

    Thanks for your time and consider.

    Sincerely,
    John

    Hello,

    While I want to place a call programmatically, an API isn't required strictly. I believe Apple does this via a URL protocol. That would work too.

    Using the tel:number schema works from the browser to make calls, I am not sure if the same will work directly from the widget or not. Another approach could be launching the native phone application to handle the call. You can launch a native application using this

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers,

    Hello Mayank,

    Thanks for the reply. The tel protocol was exactly what I was looking for.

    Just a point of clarification for others that may read this post. There isn't a dialer application per say. So, widget.openURL(url) is a better choice then openApplication() for placing a call. See http://kerncomputing.blogspot.com/20...-with-wrt.html
