magicJack add local area code

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I got tired of forgetting to add the area code when dialing local numbers with magicJack.

Here is a simple solution... just configure for your area code and start it when magicJack starts

Note that this works either when you are using a handset or if you are typing into the softphone. It keys off of a pause after entering exactly 7 digits and prepends the area code before magicJack performs the dial operation.

; mjAddLocalAreaCode.au3
;
; AutoIt program to add local area code automatically when 
;   dialing a local number with magicJack
;
; Requires Autoit from http://www.autoitscript.com

$sMyAreaCode = "111"  ; Change to your area code
$iSecondsToWait = 2.5 ; Number of seconds to wait with 7 digits entered 
                      ;   before deciding you are done entering numbers
                      ;   make this too short and you may still be dialing
                      ;   make it too long and mj may dial the 7 digit #

While WinExists("magicJack")
    If StringLen(DialString()) = 7 Then AddPrefixIfLocal()
    Sleep(100)
WEnd

Func AddPrefixIfLocal()
    ; Wait a configurable number of seconds and if the dial string has not
    ; changed, prepend the local area code to the dial string
    $sStart = DialString()
    Sleep($iSecondsToWait * 1000)
    If DialString() = $sStart Then
        ControlSetText("magicJack", "", "Edit1", $sMyAreaCode & $sStart)
        ControlSend("magicJack", "", "Edit1", "{End 1}")
    EndIf
EndFunc   ;==>AddPrefixIfLocal

Func DialString()
    ; Get and return the current dial string from the magicJack softphone
    Return ControlGetText("magicJack", "", "Edit1")
EndFunc   ;==>DialString

Where's your vorpal sword, son?

Wrap the main loop in another one and then drag a shortcut to this code and magicJack into your startup folder:

; mjAddLocalAreaCode.au3
;
; AutoIt program to add local area code automatically when
;   dialing a local number with magicJack
;
; Requires Autoit from http://www.autoitscript.com

$sMyAreaCode = "111" ; Change to your area code
$iSecondsToWait = 2.5 ; Number of seconds to wait with 7 digits entered
;   before deciding you are done entering numbers
;   make this too short and you may still be dialing
;   make it too long and mj may dial the 7 digit #

While True
    While WinExists("magicJack")
        If StringLen(DialString()) = 7 Then AddPrefixIfLocal()
        Sleep(100)
    WEnd
    Sleep(500)
WEnd

Func AddPrefixIfLocal()
    ; Wait a configurable number of seconds and if the dial string has not
    ; changed, prepend the local area code to the dial string
    $sStart = DialString()
    Sleep($iSecondsToWait * 1000)
    If DialString() = $sStart Then
        ControlSetText("magicJack", "", "Edit1", $sMyAreaCode & $sStart)
        ControlSend("magicJack", "", "Edit1", "{End 1}")
    EndIf
EndFunc   ;==>AddPrefixIfLocal

Func DialString()
    ; Get and return the current dial string from the magicJack softphone
    Return ControlGetText("magicJack", "", "Edit1")
EndFunc   ;==>DialString

snicker-snack!

The magicJack virtual phone application has just been updated and now uses Qt, therefore, the script above no longer works. Worse, the UI uses nonstanard windows components and everything is a Qwidget control that does not respond AutoIt control functions.

If anyone has had success in automating a Qt interface, please let me know.
