How to Make a Call in Windows Phone

Today, when I created an app in Windows Phone 8, I had the requirement to to make a call in Windows Phone.

Code of xaml.cs

  1. private void PhoneCall_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)  
  2.        {  
  3.            PhoneCallTask phoneCallTask = new PhoneCallTask();  
  5.            phoneCallTask.PhoneNumber = "9717098666";  
  6.            phoneCallTask.DisplayName = "Dhananjay";  
  7.            phoneCallTask.Show();  
  8.        }  
Code of XAML
  1. <Button x:Name="PhoneCall" Content="Button" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="247,464,0,0" VerticalAlignment="Top" Click="PhoneCall_Click"/>  
But while running an application, I encountered an error.

The error was:  “An unhandled exception of type 'System.UnauthorizedAccessException' occurred in”.


After some time I solved the error. I simply checked this Windows Phone Project by enabling (checking) the option ID_CAP_PHONEDIALER in the WMAppManifest.xml file of the Windows Phone Project to enable the option.


After that, I again ran the application and made a call.
