Embed "Phone Call" button in a web page

#1
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/applications/CreateHtml.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.

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!

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.
