Device IDs

Other TAPI phone functions use a handle to an open phone device to identify the open phone device. The only functions for phone devices that take a phone device ID parameter (as opposed to a phone handle) are the phoneGetDevCaps and phoneOpen functions. An application can retrieve the phone's device ID by using the function phoneGetID with the phone handle as a parameter.

An application can also obtain device IDs for various device classes associated with an opened phone by invoking phoneGetID. See Device Classes for device class names.

This function takes a phone handle and a device class description. It returns the device ID for the device of the given device class that is associated with the open phone device. If the device class is "tapi/phone," the device ID of the phone device is returned.

In contrast with line devices, for which the basic line services provide the equivalent of POTS, no minimum guaranteed set of functions is defined for phone devices. While each phone device provides at least the functions and messages described in this section, they do not offer any actual operations on the physical phone device.
