TelephonyCallGroup.hold()

This API is available on Firefox OS for internal applications only.

The hold() method of the TelephonyCallGroup interface puts the entire conference call on hold, i.e. every TelephonyCall object within it.

Syntax

myTelephonyCallGroup.hold()

Parameters

None.

Returns

Void.

Examples

// Create your Telephony object
var tel = navigator.mozTelephony;

// Make two calls; assume they are both answered
var call1, call2;
tel.dial(number1).then(call => call1 = call);
tel.dial(number2).then(call => call2 = call);

// Add both calls to the conference call
// Two entries will appear in conference.calls (call1, call2)
// but nothing in tel.calls
var conference = tel.conferenceGroup;
conference.add(call1, call2);

// say we had a hold conference button...
holdButton.onclick = function() {
  conference.hold()
};

// ... and a resume conference button
resumeButton.onclick = function() {
  conference.resume()
};
