Make a Call on Icenium using PhoneGap

In this post we will take a look on making a call using PhoneGap in a Hybrid application creating using Icenium. Let us create a view like following to make a call,


Above view can be created using following code snippet,

<div data-role="view" id="callview" data-title="Make a Call">
<h1>Call this number!</h1>
<div id='Div1'>
<label for="txtName" style="display: inline-block;">Enter Phone Number to Call:</label>
<input type="text" id="Text1" value="" />
<a id="A1" data-role="button" data-click="callfunction" data-icon="action">Make A Call</a>

On click of Make a Call button a call can be done as following,

function callfunction() {

var phntocall = document.getElementById('txtPhoneNumber1').value;
window.location.href = "tel:" + phntocall;


In above code snippet we are reading phone number. After that using tel: to make a call. It will open native Call application with configured phone number to make a call.
