Button To Open Mobile Dialer?

Post by 1uv3 » Wed Aug 14, 2019 11:33 am

Hi All,

I have been at this for over an hour so figure I'd ask for some assistance. The concept is simple:

Add an image to the skin.
When the image is clicked on the mobile devices dialer opens with preloaded number.

Voila!

I have tried adding the basic html that I would typically use on a website

Code: Select all

<a href="tel:123-456-7890"><img src="/damn/image/wont/show.png"></a>
but the image doesn't show regardless if it's absolute path or folder path.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

I also tried uploading the tour to my server thinking that maybe the image was not showing due to some dumb chrome policy but that didn't work either. The code is good, copied it directly from my website which when clicked on while using my mobile device works as expected, just doesn't work in the tour.

Was able to use a workaround that did the trick :-)

UPDATED VIDEO LINK

DAMNIT!!!!!!

I just spent literally about an hour writing out how I did this......was in between life and writing here on the forums.....after I was ALL DONE AND PRESSED SUBMIT..... everything vanished and I had to log back in!!!! HAha!!!!1 :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

This time I am creating a video :-) and here she is......
https://youtu.be/7l-oBpcJGtQ

This is the code I used from my website:

Code: Select all

<font size="7"><a href="tel:+1-800-555-1212">O</a></font>
Take note of the O that is the link. I used the O because my icon is round so as long as it covers most of the phone icon then it's good to go. Just needed to adjust the size of the O letter to fit over the icon.

Hi,

Doing well down under, working on the house and other things.

Yeah, I've lost a couple of posts like you did, pain in the butt.

Thanks for the video good to see how you've done it.

cheers,

Tony

Hi Guys,
You can use a GoTo URL action.
The small rectangle has the action:

Source: Mouse Click
Action: Go to URL
URL: tel: +441206734111
Target: _self

Tested on the Mac, open Facetime, iPhone opens the dialer.
