Hi,

How can I initiate a call to a certain skype-user from within my application (Delphi 7 pro)?
In my application you can store customers and their skype-name.
By pressing a button I want that skypename to be called (including startup Skype if it isn't active).

Regards,
Stef

well, as a first step, go to http://share.skype.com/directory/development/ and check out the resources.
then, import the skype activex control and you should be able to do something like this:

skype1.placecall(user_handle)

i've taken this from here: http://forum.skype.com/viewtopic.php?t=47585 - it's php, but com/activex is the same no matter the language :)
