Using custom database to dial with IP Office

Using custom database to dial with IP Office

Using custom database to dial with IP Office


I've designed a custom database, and have a TAPI function which dials a number from the database on the click of a button.

The code I use, according to the forum for the design platform, just uses the default phone software on the PC. The problem is that is pops up microsoft's phone dialer. This is a pain, I just want it to pop IP Office.

Does anyone know anything about this? Is there any setting to make IP Office the default phone software to use?



RE: Using custom database to dial with IP Office


If you use the standard dialer functions that a lot of the programming languages have (Access?) then you get the microsoft dialer.

I have succesfully created a dialer script with ActiveX controls, specifically from http://allen-martin-inc.com/ (I don't work for Allen-Martin)

Good Luck

RE: Using custom database to dial with IP Office


Thanks for your reply. That clears things up a little.

I'm actually using Lotus Notes, which uses the same functions, although slightly different syntax of course, as VB.

I don't know anything about ActiveX, although I'm going to try. Any pointers in the right direction would be welcome though.
