Detect Telephone ring in visual studio RRS feed

  • Question

  • heloo every1.

    im trying to develop a small program which counts the number of calls i missed when im away at work, in visual studio 2008. All i want is the counter (x) to be incremented everytime my modem detects a phone ring. (just as windows fax shows a pop up saying that "ur phone is ringing. click here to answer as fax" every time it gets a ring).

    My computer is connected to a modem via serial port.

    for this i tryed many ways. but whenever i try to use My.Computer.Ports.OpenSerialPort("COM1") it says an error "access denied to com port 1". i read somewhere that openserialport dosnt work if its connected to modem.

    can some1 suggest a better alternative or link me to a correct page. PLZ....

  • Hello,

    This forum is about Visual Studio extensibility (macros, add-ins, SDK packages) and your question seems unrelated to that. Try in a .NET programming forum or one related to TAPI, etc.

  • Hi,

    I am moving your thread to "Where is the Forum for..." Forum, for your question is little related to Visual Studio Extensibility, and you will get more information there.

    Thanks,
    Nancy
