CiscoIPPhoneExecute priorities

Answered Question
Feb 2nd, 2007

Hi all,

I'm trying to make an application that would occasionally make the phone dial a particular extension. Now, it works fine if the phone is not doing anything when I "push" it the command.

What would happen if I "push" the command to the phone while it's in the middle of a call? Can I somehow "queue" the commands on the phone, so that they are executed after the current call ends?

Just in case that matters, I'm trying to switch off the MWI indicator of the phone. Is there any other way to do it, without making the phone dial the MWI OFF number?

Thank you, any help would be appreciated (and rated).



I have this problem too.

The Cisco IP Phone developer guide says that priority 1 will cause it to be queued, and processed later when not busy, right?

Does it? I've looked through the "Developing Cisco IP Phone Services" book, and it doesn't say anything about priorities at all. Could you give me a link to the guide please?

Thank you.

Thank you.

It says that "The Priority attribute is only used for HTTP URLs. Internal URIs always execute immediately.". But I guess I can still make my first Execute request asking the phone to navigate to a page with another Execute request, which would then dial the number.

I haven't tried that yet, hope it'll work as it's supposed to on both 7940's and 7960's.
