Can headless app initiate a phone call?

I am working on a telephony-based app and would like to initiate a call from the headless part of the app. I am using the following code

 

    QVariantMap map;
    map.insert("number", QString("+12345678999"));    // required
    InvokeRequest request;

    QByteArray requestData = bb::PpsObject::encode(map, NULL);
    request.setAction(QString("bb.action.DIAL"));
    request.setMimeType(QString("application/vnd.blackberry.phone.startcall"));

    request.setData(requestData);

    m_invokeManager->invoke(request);

 The code doesn't work when used from the headless part though it works from a regular, UI part of the app. I have all the available phone permissions selected.

 

Is it possible to initiate an call from a headless application?

No, that is not supported.  You'll need to initiate it from your UI application.
