Dialing - a more customizable route
Authored by: jamesellissteven on Mar 26, '04 04:36:21AM

This didn't work for me - I got a message from Internet Connect saying:

"The Connection has failed because you have not entered a telephone number"

I double checked and the field did contain a telephone number. Any ideas?

Dialing - a more customizable route

I got the message that "The connection has failed because you have not entered a telephone number".

By the way, what would the script look like if I just wanted to dial the phone number through the speakers?

Panther AppleScript bug
Authored by: sreubart on Aug 11, '04 03:07:43PM

There's just one problem with this--it doesn't work in Panther. Last year I wrote a RealBASIC program to let my users easily select from a list of our ISP's access numbers. It then uses AppleScript to send the number over to Internet Connect for dialing.

This worked beautifully in Jaguar, but broke in Panther. For some reason Panther has the telephone number field (and a couple of others) in Internet Connect set as read-only, so you can't put any values into that field. So it complains that you haven't entered a phone number.

I've found a couple of other people who have had the same problem, so I reported it to Apple's bug reporting system 3 months ago. It's still in the "open/verify" status, so at least it appears that they are testing a fix. I hope I don't have to wait for Tiger to see it fixed!
