Question:

Can any one suggest me how to integrate Skype into SalesLogix windows client?

Answer:

If it is just outgoing calls, this can help you get started http://www.codeproject.com/KB/cs/skypecontrolapicsharp.aspx You will have to use a .net extension, but it should still be possible.

A quick and easy way would be to add the following to the script:

Sub SkypeCall(ByVal PhoneNumber)Dim shell    Set shell = CreateObject(“WScript.Shell”)    shell.Run “callto:” & PhoneNumber, 1, false    Set shell = NothingEnd Sub

Then you can create the phone numbers as hyperlinks or add buttons to pass the phone numbers to this sub like:

SkypeCall txtPhoneNumber.Text

There is an ActiveX COM Object on the Skype website which I have used successful within SalesLogix a few years ago:
