Works fine. But you can't just point to Yahoo! Finance or something. You need to have a web server that will return XML objects that the phone will understand... this XML code can be based upon data this server gets from some outside web page.
Information on the XML objects that can be interpreted by the phones is at:
Also, the phone needs to be able to get to the web server that is going to return the XML code.
I have been to that URL, however if you go to pages 24 - 29 it does NOT work. Guess my point is that if you are going to list the url as a place to go as an example it would be nice if the example actually worked.
I understand that some pages may have to be parsed, however, I would believe that some wouldn't. Is there any listing of pages that would work by just pointing to them because they have the proper XML format already?
Thanx in advance......
As I see we have had several people post here in the last day - The first place I would point you is to the internal files that ship with CM - these will give you the basics - after that, look at the SDK available for download from the Cisco web site (http://www.cisco.com/warp/customer/570/avvid/voice_ip/cm_xml/cm_xmldown.html) After that it's a matter of designing your own - it takes coding in either perl or xml and then just working on it until it's done - most of the files I have located out on the web are not available for viewing as this is a budding industry and many (ok most) people do not want to give away their effort for somebody else to use and sell.
I have not had much success in pulling information from websites other then the weather (which was a perl script my husband wrote for me). Like most of you, I would love to see other examples of code to see what can be done, but alas, we are all in this business for the money when it comes right down to it. If anybody has comments or assistance please post and let us all know.
While this does not pull anything from another website, there is a posting at http://www.adagetechnologies.com/downloads.asp which is the "Getting Started with the Cisco IP Phone 7960/7940" manual. All of the sample code is there.
You'll need to run this on IIS.
Wow, thank you so much for posting this information, now if I could only get the download to work to look at - but again - thank you for passing on a good example to look at!!
