Can I use another application (wget) to make the HTTP call, as this wouldn't launch the IE window?

Question:

I'm trying to write a little script to launch an external appliaction from SalesLogix.

To give some backgound: We have a 3CX Phone system, so the built-in dialler does not work. 3CX does have a function for this which I have implemented using WebOpen to launch a webpage with the URL which triggers the call.

The downside of this is that it also launches a IE window. Can I use another application (wget) to make the HTTP call, as this wouldn't launch the IE window?

 

Answer:

why don't you use the xmlHTTP object to call the URL without having to open a Browser?

An Example:

Dim objHTTP
Dim yourURL

yourURL = "http://:5484/PbxAPI.aspx?func=make_call&from=204&to=203&pin=123"

Set objHTTP = CreateObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP")
objHTTP.open "GET", yourURL, False ' I am making the call Synchronous so that you could get any Error Codes
objHTTP.send

if objHTTP.status <> 200 then
msgbox "An Error has ocurred: " + objHTTP.status + vbCRLF + objHTTP.statusText
End If

Set objHTTP = Nothing
