Additional information for triggering phone, SMS and e-mail in SAPUI5 applications.

  • iOS does not trigger a phone call if the phone number contains "*" or "#".

  • You can add multiple recipients for a text message in Android phones by separating recipient numbers with ";".

  • According to RFC 2368 you can set multiple subscribers for the e-mail application by separating each with ","; however, this still depends on the application. Outlook, for example, uses ";" as separator.

  • You can use the sap.m.URLHelper.redirect method to use custom URL schemes:

  • If you just want to get a URI back without a redirect, you can use normalize methods which have the same parameter as trigger methods, for example:

     * These methods do not redirect but return URI scheme back as string.
     * All parameters are optional
    sap.m.URLHelper.normalizeTel( [Telephone Number] );
    sap.m.URLHelper.normalizeSms( [Telephone Number] );
    sap.m.URLHelper.normalizeEmail( [Destination Email], [Subject], [Default Message Text], [CC], [BCC] );
