VOIP/SIP - "sip:" calls from a form

Hi,

I want to be able to make SIP-calls from a form.
How do I do that? change the hyperlink somehow or VB-code under a button?!?
I have a field called tblCustomers.SipTelNr

When I enter in MSIE:
"sip:0031226111111@sip.xs4all.nl", it works just fine...

- Using the program Eyebeam from Counterpath, Http://www.xten.com
- XP Pro Sp2
- Office 2k3

Hello,

Wild guess, but if it works in IE, Windows knows about it. Hence, this line of VB should as well:

    FollowHyperlink "sip:0031226111111@sip.xs4all.nl"
    FollowHyperlink Me.SipTelNr   ' using the current number...

Easy to add to a click event of  a button...

Hope this works!

HI,

The nexts thing works, but with Windows error:

Private Sub Command176_Click()
Application.FollowHyperlink Me.SIPCallto
End Sub

The error:
Opening "Sip:0031226111111@sip.xs4all.nl"

Hyperlinks can be harmfull to your computer and data
To protect your computer, click only those hyperlinks from trusted sources.
Do you want to continue?

It gives a less pleasant sound on my headset,...
Is there a way to get rid of this error or make the SIP programme trusted somehow?!?

Sorry, no. That is as far as my knowledge of hyperlinks goes. Perhaps you could send out a 20pt pointer question linking back to this one in some more generic web TA? Perhaps "browser issues" or "windows security"? I'm afraid I don't even know which would be best...
Good luck!

I had a second look at this product. In the "eyeBeam v1.5 User's Guide" I found this:

    E.2 From the Command Line
    You can start eyeBeam from a DOS prompt. You may need to add
    eyeBeam.exe to the PATH. Then type:
        eyebeam.exe
    To start eyeBeam from a DOS prompt and immediately dial a number, type:
        eyebeam.exe -dial=sip:<number>

This means that if you have your number in Me.SipTelNr, this should work:

    Shell "<path>eyebeam.exe -dial=sip:" & Me.SipTelNr

This would bypass the Outlook dll and the "hyperlink" warning message...

now eyebeam reacts directly as well,... within a second its making a call...!
thanks mate!

+++++++++++
For the record,
made a little change to the code: (Without "sip:")

Private Sub Command12_Click()
Shell "C:\Program Files\CounterPath\eyeBeam 1.5\eyebeam.exe -dial=" & Me.SipTelNr
End Sub
