    Embed "Phone Call" button in a web page

    I want to have a button on a web page call another PC using Windows Live
    Messenger. Casey's blog,
    http://settings.messenger.live.com/a...reateHtml.aspx was really
    helpful to show how Messenger could be embedded in a web page. I would like
    to embed a larger size "Make a phone call" icon from Messenger in a web page
    to create a simple "click" to make a call to my profile exclusively! Is the
    code for displaying the "Make a phone call" icon available?

    Thank you in advance for any direction you can provide.

    Greetings,

    Well - you could use the msnim protocol handler.

    In other words, you make a link like this:
    <a href="msnim:voice?contact=yourliveid@xxxxxx">Have a voice conversation with me on
    Messenger</a>

    You are incredible! So, now I want to have the end user's browser on a UMPC
    hit my webpage with your really cool script linked to a button. The UMPC user
    has Messenger going in the background but I don't want it to come in front of
    the brower...just stay hidden behind the page. Is this possible as well?

    Thank you!

    Hi,

    Nah I'm afraid not (with Messenger anyway). All the fun scripting stuff was locked down many
    years ago because of abuse from worms and other malware.

    Re: Embed "Phone Call" button in a web page

    Then would you have the href code to "end" and "answer" a voice call similar
    to what you provided to initiate an MSN phone call? I could make the web
    page work with these 3 links. Thanks again!

    Re: Embed "Phone Call" button in a web page

    Hi,

    I'm afraid they're just for inviting - the only thing you can do that I haven't mentioned is
    replace "voice" with "add", "video" or "chat", which starts the associated action with the
    contact.
