Dial URI Delay

Unanswered Question

Is there a way to code a delay into the dial string of the Dial URI? I need to add a 1-2 second delay in two places in the dial string. I have tried commas in the example below (old school), but that doesn't seem to have any effect.

<ExecuteItem Priority="0" URL="Dial:5120,,101#,,042#"/>

My other option here is to use TAPI, but I'd rather not have to do that if I can avoid it.

Also, can somebody clarify the difference between Dial and EditDial?

don't blame you wanting to avoid tapi. how about using the KEY: URI? that way, you can dial the number a key at a time, inserting pauses where you want to. of course, every key will be a separate CiscoIPPhoneExecute, but at least you'll be able to get the delay you need (and probably more!)

Sending a DIAL: to a phone causes it to dial the number sent. EDITDIAL pops up a dialog on the phone that allows the user to edit the number before dialing it.
