Syntax object.WaitForCall [Description], [InitString]



Initializes the modem to automatically answer an incoming call and opens a status dialog box until a connection has been established. This method does not check to see whether a modem is actually connected to the serial port; it simply transmits the Hayes "AT" command to get the modem's attention, then transmits the "ATS0=1" command to place the modem in answer mode. If the command fails for any reason, no error is returned. The procedure continues to the next statement only after the status box is dismissed (either because the modem established a connection, the user canceled, or the dialog box timed out).


Description Argument Type: String
Specifies a message to be displayed in the Waiting for Call dialog box.

InitString Argument Type: String
Specifies an initialization string to be sent to the modem before waiting. If this argument is omitted, Reflection uses the default initialization string configured for the modem.
