How to initiate a call without a prompt on OS 10.3?

[ Edited ]
0 down vote favorite

I am trying to start a phone call without triggering a prompt for the user. I am trying to do this from C++.

 

This wasn't possible in 10.2 or prior (as far as i know) but on the Momentics 2.1 release summary of what is new in 10.3 it states that one can now "start an outgoing phone call without prompting the user":

 

https://developer.blackberry.com/cascades/momentics/

 

The problem is, I looked at the permissions documentation https://developer.blackberry.com/native/documentation/cascades/dev/tools/app_permissions.html#availa... and there isn't any new permission listed there as new in 10.3 to handle this.

 

Does anyone know if making a programmatic 'prompt-less' call is really possible in 10.3? If so, what is the required permission?

maybe a controlled permission (you have to apply for) that is not on the page yet?

That shouldn't have been listed yet.  Sorry for the confusion, I'll have that page updated accordingly.

Mark, Is it possible to initiate a call without a prompt on 02 10.3? Are you considering it to fix in future releases?

This is not supported in 10.3 or 10.3.1.

Thank you for your prompt reply.

 

We would like to come out of that user prompt.

 

Can we acquire special privilege (by signing with Blackberry) in achieving it?

Can you please throw more lights on this?

 

Thanks again.
