Conference

The following code snippet shows how to merge calls into a conference.

  • For an conference via consultation, it assumes existence of a held primary call and an active consult call. Execution of the code snippet would be triggered by an explicit user action (e.g., pressing of a Merge button).
  • For a single-step conference, it assumes existence of an active primary call and another call attempt initiated by the logged-in user. Execution of the code snippet would be triggered by connection of the second call.


public void MergeCalls(List<Call> calls) {

Call conferencingCall = FindConferencingCall(calls, null);

if (conferencingCall == null)

return;


List<Call> callsToMerge = new List<Call>();

foreach (Call call in calls) {

if (call.id != conferencingCall.id && call.state != CallState.Disconnected) {

callsToMerge.Add(call);

}

}

conferencingCall.mergeConference(callsToMerge);

}


private Call FindConferencingCall(List<Call> calls) {

Call bestCall = null;

DateTime bestTime = DateTime.Now;


foreach (Call call in calls) {

if (call.state != CallState.Disconnected && call.state != CallState.Unknown) {

foreach (CallParty cp in call.parties.Values) {

switch (cp.phoneType) {

case PhoneType.Trunk:

return call;

case PhoneType.DialOut:

return call;

case PhoneType.AccessNumber:

return call;

case PhoneType.Phone:

case PhoneType.Softphone:


if (bestCall == null) {

 bestCall = call;

 bestTime = call.startTime;

}

else if (call.startTime < bestTime) {

bestCall = call;

bestTime = call.startTime;

}

break;

}

}

}

}

return bestCall;

}


To remove a participant from a conference, the removeParty method from Call should be used as follows:

void RemoveFromConference(string callId, string partyId)

{     
Call call = AgentPlace.call(callId);
if (call != null)
{
CallParty party = call.parties[partyId];
if (party != null)
{
call.removeParty(party);
}
}

}


To leave a conference (remove oneself from a conference), use the drop method from Call:

public void drop();


To end a conference, use the endConference method from Call:

public void endConference();
