Skype For Business - Javascript Integration - Help Required RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are using Skype for business in our organization which is connected to our own Lync Server. I am a .NET developer and would like to get your help for one of our requirements.


    Based on our requirement, we would like to open a user chat window/user call window from a web page when user clicks on a button/link in the custom web page. User can click on any Skype users listed in the web page which are dynamically populated from database, to open a chat/call window. We have Skype for business client installed in all our machines and just wanted to open the skype windows just like outlook does.


    I have tried Skype.ui to open a chat window but the browser is showing that Skype client is not installed in the machine and failed to open Skype chat window. Infact I have the Skype client installed and running in my machine.


    Any help would be appreciated.


    Thank you

  • Thank you for your time.

    I have checked the Lync Select Dial and seems good. But I am looking for custom implementation in my own web page. I have posted the same question in the Skype for Business Developer forum that you provided. Hope I will get some help from there.
