Showing name of the Contact only

Hello

 

I am making a demo app in which i want to call a number from my application. I am successfully doing it. I am just passing the number from my app to the in built application which makes the call. But i want that the in built application should not show the dialled number but should only show the name of the contact stored in my app.

Is it possible to show only the name of the contact ?

 

Thanks in advance.

Re: Showing name of the Contact only

you can add the contact to the address book, this will enable the native phone app to show its other data

Re: Showing name of the Contact only

yes, the problem still exists. i circumvent it by waiting 2 seconds until deleting the call log, but other people report that they still have problems with this approach.

 

you can display what you want in your app. if you want the native app to display stuff you'll have to do some turns.
