mute and turn mute off

Hi all.

Does anyone have an idea/insight in what is happending when during call user presses Mute from the menu (or by using the mute button on the device).

 

I am wondering if there is a special implementation of menuItem Mute because it is automagically altered into 'turn Mute off'. How is that done? Is the MenuItem changed when after receiving the Mute order or what?

 

If yes, then is there a way to listen to mute button pressed event?

(or can i just implement a key listener - there is a mute key that i can intercept?)

 

Thanks

Re: mute and turn mute off

mute disables the microphone (for example to ask your coworker)
afaik mute is only a function of the menu, there is no shortkey for it (other then the speaker).
you can read the status depending on the available menu item (or simply toggle a boolean).

Re: mute and turn mute off

Sorry, I was not clear enough on the issue.

 

You can observe what I am talking about by making a call. Then (in call) you can either

a) use the mute button (on 8110 it's on its top)

b) use MenuItem Mute

 

What is strange?

 

Well when I use a) MenuItem changes to 'turn mute off'

 

So, there must be a way to know when a) is done.

 

How is that done?
