Without using any third party OCX's...

I want to use TAPI via Visual Basic to answer the phone.  All the examples I've come across use the TAPILINE control.  Can anyone provide me with an example of how to answer the phone without using this control?

This source code is great only it doesn't answer incoming calls, just makes outgoing calls.  From what I can see anyway, let me know if u c other wise.
