We would like to see the Information > Contact view be a little more helpful. If you could actually dial the phone number through TAPI from there it would be very helpful. Also being able to email the from there as well.
thanks

Hi,
For the email, this could be added easily but for dial how this works in Windows?

In most cases you just have to initialize the TAPI service providers found on the computer. Here is a sample project... http://www.codeproject.com/KB/IP/devangpro.aspx
You could only pay attention to the dialer, but a point of interest would be having settings to set local and long distance prededing strings and proceding strings... for instance:

local dialing parameters Long distance dialing parameters
----------------------------- ----------------------------------------
precede : ___________ precede:_______________
procede : ___________ procede:_______________

so for instance if you have to dial 9 to get out of the building you would enter 9 in the precede. and in the US we have to dial 1 for long distance so you would enter 91 in the precede box... then it would be able to handle dialing a typical phone entry like 555-555-5555. It would actually dial as 9+1+555-555-5555
some businesses have long distance codes so in the procede you would enter something like ppp1234 where p stands for pause and 1234 is the long distance code that must be dialed
