The Answer method answers the offering call.

Function Answer()
 As Boolean



Return Values

If the function succeeds, the return TRUE, otherwise return FALSE. Use ErrCode property to get the error code if return FALSE.


When a new call arrives, applications with an interest in the call are sent a OnNewCall event to provide the new call handle and to inform the application about the call's state

In some telephony environments (like ISDN), where user alerting is separate from call offering, the application can have the option to accept a call prior to answering or to reject or redirect the offering call.
