    Hi,

    Ultimately, I’d like to make TAPI to start a phone call on our desk phones. I know GW supports the dial method from the address book, but it would be quite useful to select a number in a message or subject, right click and Dial.

    I think I can grab selected text by doing an Copy to Clipboard and I guess manipulate it from there, but I wondered if I could just grab the selected text?

    Thanks,
    Tim

    You can use GroupWise Token API to copy selected text to the Clipboard then Formativ utilities method to return text value from the Clipboard. See the Formativ Language Guide for more information.

    Code below copy selected text from message body to clipboard and show in a message box.

      
      groupwise.EditCopy
      msgbox utilities.FromClipBoard
