Further information about the sample.


TPhoneDialerForm is the main form that represents the main window of the sample. It contains the following components:


  • The sample uses TListBox to display a set of items with the carrier information.
  • The sample uses TButton to activate different IFMXPhoneDialerService methods.
  • The sample uses TEdit to create an edit box to enter the phone number to which the user is going to call.

When you run the application, there are four TListBoxItems, two TButtons and a TEdit box. If you click the Get Carrier Info button, the four TListBoxItems are filled with the carrier information. Moreover, if you want to make a phone call, you have to introduce the phone number into the TEdit box under the Telephone Number label and click on the make Call button.
