Project Setup

The steps to create all sample projects within Visual Basic are as follows:

  1. Run Visual Basic.

  2. From the Project menu, select “Add Form.” Choose the plain “Form” option from the dialog that appears, and hit “Ok.” A blank dialog box will appear for you to fill in with your form components.

  3. Add the TeleTools ActiveX to the project, from the Visual Basic Project menu, select “Components”. From the Components dialog box, on the Control tab, put a check mark by the “ExceleTel TeleTools v3.7” line. From the Components dialog box, click the OK button. You should now see the TeleTools component(s) in your Visual Basic General Toolbar.

  4. Add the etTTConst.bas file. It contains definitions for interpreting information from telephony devices. Select “Add File…” from the Project menu. Navigate to the Program Files\ExceleTel\TeleTools\3.7\bin\ActiveX directory and select the file, then press “Ok.”

 The TeleTools controls will be visible in the Tool Box. Look for the following icons:





You are now ready to add the TeleTools controls to your form(s).

Be sure to review the information in the sections Creating Controls Design-Time, Creating Controls at Run-Time and Why Serial Numbers Are Important section. This will explain how to use the AboutLoadSerialNumber properties to set the AboutSerialNumber properties.

 Before using a TeleTools control it must be enabled. This is done by setting the Enabled or EnableControl property to True.
