Dialing Phone Number with Extension

I am using JDE with the Simulator for the 8300 phone.


I have been successful at dialing a phone number from my application but was wondering if there was any way to add an extension to the number I am dialing?  I didn't see any way to do it using the PhoneArguments class.

Re: Dialing Phone Number with Extension

There are a couple of things you could do here.  You could input commas in the number to pause after dailing, followed by the number for the extension.  Or you can use the PhoneCall.sendDTMFTone(s) methods to inject the extension into the call.
