TelephonyCall Redirect 1

Non-standard
This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.

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

The TelephonyCall interface of the Web Telephony API represents one telephone call, providing information about the call and offering mechanisms for controlling it and detecting changes to its status.

Properties

TelephonyCall.disconnectedReason Read only
A DOMString indicating the reason why the call was disconnected (either because there was an error somewhere, or the call ended or wasn't answered.)
TelephonyCall.emergency Read only
A Boolean indicating whether the number being called is an emergency number.
TelephonyCall.group Read only
A DOMString indicating the TelephonyCallGroup (multi-person call) the call belongs to, if any.
TelephonyCall.id Read only
A DOMString indicating the phone number corresponding to the call.
TelephonyCall.secondId Read only
A DOMString indicating the second phone number in the case of a CDMA network where you have a 2nd waiting call.
TelephonyCall.mergeable Read only
A Boolean indicating whether the current call can be added into a TelephonyCallGroup (multi-person call.)
TelephonyCall.serviceId Read only
A DOMString Indicating which service the call comes from.
TelephonyCall.state Read only
A DOMString indicating the status of the call.
TelephonyCall.switchable Read only
A Boolean indicating whether the current call can be switched between "connected" and "held" states.

Event Handlers

TelephonyCall.onalerting
A function to be called when the call alerts, while awaiting a connection with a carrier.
TelephonyCall.onconnected
A function to be called once the call is connected.
TelephonyCall.onconnecting
A function to be called after dialing, while awaiting acceptance by the remote party.
TelephonyCall.ondialing
A function to be called when the call begins dialing the number.
TelephonyCall.ondisconnected
A function to be called after the call has finished disconnecting.
TelephonyCall.ondisconnecting
A function to be called when the call begins to disconnect.
TelephonyCall.ongroupchange
A function to call when the call's TelephonyCallGroup (and therefore TelephonyCall.group property) changes.
TelephonyCall.onholding
A function to be called when an instruction has been issued to put the call on hold.
TelephonyCall.onheld
A function to be called when the call has been held.
TelephonyCall.onresuming
A function to call when a previously held call resumes.
TelephonyCall.onstatechange
A function to be called when the state of the call changes.

Obsolete properties

TelephonyCall.error Read only
A DOMString indicating a returned error when a call does connect successfully. This is being obsoleted as the error messages being returned were confusing, replaced by the more semantically effective TelephonyCall.disconnectedReason.
TelephonyCall.number Read only
A DOMString indicating the phone number corresponding to the call. Replaced by TelephonyCall.id in Firefox OS 2.0+.
TelephonyCall.secondNumber Read only
A DOMString indicating the second phone number in the case of a CDMA network where you have a 2nd waiting call. Replaced by TelephonyCall.SecondId in Firefox OS 2.0+.

Obsolete event handlers

TelephonyCall.onerror
A function to be called when the call does not succeed due to error. This is being obsoleted as it is very similar to TelephonyCall.ondisconnected, but semantically more narrow and therefore not as useful.
TelephonyCall.onincoming
A function to call when an incoming call is detected.

Methods

TelephonyCall also inherits methods from the EventTarget interface.

TelephonyCall.answer()
Answers an incoming call.
TelephonyCall.hangUp()
Hangs up the call.
TelephonyCall.hold()
Allows you to put a call on hold.
TelephonyCall.resume()
Allows you to resume a call that was previously put on hold.

Examples

// Telephony object
var tel = navigator.mozTelephony;

// Place a call
tel.dial("123456789").then(function(call) {
  call.number;
});

// Receive a call
tel.onincoming = function (e) {
  var incomingCall = e.call;

  // Get the id/number of the incoming call
  console.log(incomingCall.id);

  // Answer the call
  incomingCall.answer();
};
