How to invoke outgoing call screen?
I am going to invoke a phone call by using Invoke.invokeapplication(), but this one seems cannot invoke the default call screen, after I run it, it doesn't show anything at all.
Anyone has idea about this?

You need to post more information. How about a code snippet?

m_callMenuItem = new MenuItem("call" , 0,0)
        public void run()
              Invoke.invokeApplication(Invoke.APP_TYPE_PHONE, new    PhoneArguments (PhoneArguments.ARG_CALL, "555-5555"));


I mean, after I run this code, the screen doesn't change at all, seems like nothing happened. I am expecting it will be like a normal phone call, and call screen will pop out....

How could I make that? or it is not possible to make a call from our own application just like making a call as a default way..

Have you checked for exceptions? Have you checked Application Permissions (phone)?

What version of JDE, and which simulator are you using?

Have you placed a breakpoint to make sure the Invoke statement is being executed?

Ah..solved...thanks Dougsg38p.

the problem is I have not checked the application permissions.

I'm trying to invoke this line inside a class that implements PhoneListener :

Invoke.invokeApplication(Invoke.APP_TYPE_PHONE, new PhoneArguments(PhoneArguments.ARG_CALL, "555-5555"));
it says "Calling" but nothing happens

any ideas what am I doing wrong?
