Note.pngNote: This API is not part of the public SDK. It can be found in the SDK API Plug-in.


The following code can be used to dial VoIP, video, or voice calls using the AIW API:

TAiwDialDataV1 data;
TAiwDialDataV1Pckg dataPckg( data );
// CallType can be Voice, VoIP, or Video
TAiwCallType callType(EAiwVoice);
data.SetCallType( callType );
TAiwNameBuffer name(_L("Callee"));
data.SetWindowGroup( CCoeEnv::Static()->RootWin().Identifier() );
TPtrC8 ptr;
ptr.Set( dataPckg );
TAiwVariant variant( ptr );
TAiwGenericParam param( EGenericParamCallDialDataV1, variant );
CAiwGenericParamList& paramList = serviceHandler->InParamListL();
paramList.AppendL( param );
//Make call
serviceHandler->ExecuteServiceCmdL( KAiwCmdCall, paramList, serviceHandler->OutParamListL() );

This works fine in S60 3rd Edition and S60 3rd Edition, FP1 devices, such as the Nokia N95, but ExecuteServiceCmdL fails with error code -6 KErrArgument in the Nokia N95 8GB.


Use the 3rd Party Telephony API or Phone Client Dial APIs (part of API Plug-in package) instead of AIW (part of API Plug-in package) in the N95 8GB. This issue is expected to be fixed in future releases of the N95 8GB.
