Phone Call

Non-Visible component
Category Requires Version
Social API 19, Android 4.4 - 4.4.4 KitKat 2


A non-visible component that makes a phone call to the number specified in the PhoneNumber property, which can be set either in the Designer or Blocks Editor. The component has a MakePhoneCall method, enabling the program to launch a phone call.

Often, this component is used with the ContactPicker component, which lets the user select a contact from the ones stored on the phone and sets the PhoneNumber property to the contact's phone number.

To directly specify the phone number (e.g., 650-555-1212), set the PhoneNumber property to a Text with the specified digits (e.g., "6505551212"). Dashes, dots, and parentheses may be included (e.g., "(650)-555-1212") but will be ignored; spaces may not be included.
