Using TAPI in Visual Basic 2005 Express RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am brand new to TAPI and am not sure whether it is even supported in Visual Basic 2005 or not. I need to develope a program that will call a phone number from a textbox and play a recorded sound file to the number/line. Am I investigating in the right technology or is there something better or more recently developed that will work for this problem?

    Thanks in advance

  • If I recall correctly TAPI is based upon COM.

    VB 2005 allows the use of almost all COM components without any problems.   SO you would simply need to add the reference to appropriate COM Components and then use them.

    I think most of the samples I'd seen seem to relate to VB6 samples but these should be able to be used with little or no modification in 2005.
