The Redirect method redirects this call to the specified destination address.

function Redirect(BSTR DialableAddr) As boolean


the destination address. This follows the standard dialable number format.

Return Values

If the method succeeds, return TRUE, otherwise return FALSE.


Call redirect allows an application to deflect an offering call to another address without first answering the call. Call redirect differs from call forwarding in that call forwarding is performed by the switch without the involvement of the application; redirection can be done on a call-by-call basis by the application, for example, driven by caller ID information. It differs from call transfer in that transferring a call requires the call first be answered.

After a call has been successfully redirected, the call typically transitions to idle.
