Does anybody have a simple sample that will do the following:

Identify the TAPI devices that I have,
Be able to select a specific device
and make a call through that device.

I have the UI built and I have a simple make call but I want to be able to do the top two items of my request. Here is the sample code:

Declare Function tapiRequestMakeCall Lib "tapi32.dll" _
         (ByVal stNumber As String, ByVal stDummy1 As String, _
         ByVal stDummy2 As String, ByVal stDummy3 As String) As Long

'Following function receives a phone number to dial.

Function DialNumber (PhoneNumber)

Dim Msg As String
Dim RetVal As Long

' Send the telephone number to the modem.
RetVal = tapiRequestMakeCall(PhoneNumber, "", "", "")
If RetVal < 0 Then
Msg = "Unable to dial number " & PhoneNumber
End If

End Function
