    Default Help for a UK based novice: Using a soft-dialler with alpha.

    Slide1.JPGSlide2.JPGSlide3.JPG

    Hi, I am no developer/programmer, just an ok user of a desktop version. I am trying to develop a button that will dial a softphone system installed on my laptop. This is how I've gone about it, but I'm getting stuck.

    I've followed the path of (a) opening the program (3cx) and then (b) getting the information into a variable called 3cxhomev2. It's part c that is beyond me. I want to use that variable result (a character field that contains a telephone number) in the soft dialler to dial that number. Can anyone show me the light or advise if I'm on the right path?

    Martin,

    just type anything in the box in part c, then convert the action to xbasic. Finally replace the string in quotes after sys_send_keys with you variable name. end result will look like sys_send_keys(3cxhomev2)

    Jon, many tanks for the advice. This along with a bit of help locally solved the problem. I now have alpha dialling on my extension off the screen click.
