Hi,

I am writing an app that requires the following two things in separate tabs:

- address book
- phone keypad (with the green thingy to make a call and everything)

My two questions are:

1/ how to I get the AddressBook IN the tab and not appearing on top of the tabBar as it currently happends with ABPeoplePickerNavigationController?

2/ is there a framework to get the standard iPhone dialer in one of my tabs (could not find reference to such a framework so far)?

Thanks

Cheers,

Pierre

Not sure about the first question, but your best bet for the second is to load the number into the actual phone application. Mind you that the dialer is an application not a framework.

Thx KoolStar.

To make my first question more specific. For now the ABPeoplePickerNavigationController appears as a modal view and hides the TabBar. I would rather have it appear in non-modal view so that the Tab buttons would still be accessible. Did not find the way to do it.

As for the dialer, the idea would be to reproduce the iPhone dialer in a tab and not only send a number to the original iPhone dialer. I was thus wondering if there was a way to benefit from a framework rather than having to redraw all the buttons and do it again.

Thanks

Hi Pierre

I know it was a long time ago, but...
did you find a solution for your 2nd question ?


2/ is there a framework to get the standard iPhone dialer in one of my tabs (could not find reference to such a framework so far)?

Again the dialer is an application not a framework.

Is there a code example of an application that do a dailer ?

I am thinking to make a viewcontroller with dialer view
and catch the events when user clicking on the numbers,
then to make a call command.

Are you familiar with a similar code example ?
