The SetCallInstanceData API is used when an application is transmitting call instance data with a phone call. This API procedure is used by the transmitting end of a call to specify the actual byte values of the call's instance data. Call instance data can be ASCII or raw binary data and its format is dictated by the application. Call instance data that is part of a phone call can be used for whatever reasons the application requires. Generally, an application should associate no more than 512 bytes of instance data with any phone call in order for UDP network packets to remain as small as possible. However, there is no maximum limit imposed on user defined call instance data.

Generally you would call this procedure when the event callback sends you the SipOutgoingCallInitializing or the SipOutgoingTransferInitializing event indication.

The zero based phone line to access.
Type: array< System..::.Byte >[]()[]
A reference to the application's call instance data. This data will be sent to the receiving end of the call.

Return Value

If the function succeeds, the return value will be SipSuccess.

If the function fails, the return value will be one of the following values as specified by the VoipMediaEngine..::.TELEPHONY_RETURN_VALUE data type.

Return ValueDescription
This value is returned by telephony API procedures to indicate general API failure. This error value is used as a "catch all error". If you receive this error, check to make sure that all parameters specified in the API procedure call are correct. Particularly, verify that pointers to memory regions are valid. This error return value is only used if a mapping to another specific error value does not exist.

(API return value)

One of the telephony API procedures was called by application software and was passed a pointer to an invalid memory address. Normally this error will occur when application software passes NULL pointer values to the telephony API. For managed code applications, you should never see this error unless your process space has exhausted memory.

(API return value)

Application software specified an invalid telephony handle in one of the API procedures. This usually indicates memory corruption on the part of application software.

(API return value)

Application software called a telephony API procedure and specified an invalid phone line. Phone lines are numbered starting from zero. This error is most commonly returned when attempting to access phone lines in excess of the max number of lines supported by the telephony engine.

(API return value)

This error informs an application that it has called an API procedure that can not be executed during the current call state.
