lineGetNewCalls function (tapi.h)

The lineGetNewCalls function returns call handles to calls on a specified line or address for which the application currently does not have handles. The application is granted monitor privilege to these calls.

Syntax

LONG lineGetNewCalls(
  HLINE          hLine,
  DWORD          dwAddressID,
  DWORD          dwSelect,
  LPLINECALLLIST lpCallList
);

Parameters

hLine

Handle to an open line device.

dwAddressID

Address on the given open line device. An address identifier is permanently associated with an address; the identifier remains constant across operating system upgrades.

dwSelect

Selection of calls that are requested. This parameter uses one and only one of the LINECALLSELECT_ Constants.

lpCallList

Pointer to a variably sized data structure of type LINECALLLIST. Upon successful completion of the request, call handles to all selected calls are returned in this structure. Prior to calling lineGetNewCalls, the application must set the dwTotalSize member of this structure to indicate the amount of memory available to TAPI for returning information.

Note  If the size parameters in the structure are not correct, there is a possibility that data could get overwritten. For more information on setting structure sizes, see the memory allocation topic.
 

Return value

Returns zero if the request succeeds or a negative error number if an error occurs. Possible return values are:

LINEERR_INVALADDRESSID, LINEERR_OPERATIONFAILED, LINEERR_INVALCALLSELECT, LINEERR_RESOURCEUNAVAIL, LINEERR_INVALLINEHANDLE, LINEERR_STRUCTURETOOSMALL, LINEERR_INVALPOINTER, LINEERR_UNINITIALIZED, LINEERR_NOMEM.

Remarks

An application can use lineGetNewCalls to obtain handles to calls for which it currently has no handles. The application can select the calls for which handles are to be returned by basing this selection on scope (calls on a specified line, or calls on a specified address). For example, an application can request call handles to all calls on a given address for which it currently has no handle. The application is always given monitor privilege to the new call handles. Also, when opening a line, an application uses this function to become aware of existing calls.

The application can invoke lineGetCallInfo and lineGetCallStatus for each call in the list to determine the call's information and status, respectively. It can use lineSetCallPrivilege to change its privilege to owner.
