NAME ^

Polycom::Contact - Contact in a Polycom VoIP phone's local contact directory.

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Polycom::Contact;

  # Create a new contact
  my $contact = Polycom::Contact->new(
      first_name => 'Bob',
      last_name  => 'Smith',
      contact    => '1234',
  );

  # The contact can be interpolated in strings
  # Prints: "The contact is: Bob Smith at 1234"
  print "The contact is: $contact\n";

  # The contact can also be compared with other contacts
  my $otherContact = Polycom::Contact->new(first_name => 'Jimmy', contact => '5678');
  if ($otherContact != $contact)
  {
    print "$otherContact is not the same as $contact\n";
  }

  # Or, of course, you can simply query the contact's fields
  my $first_name = $contact->first_name;
  my $last_name  = $contact->last_name;

DESCRIPTION ^

The Polycom::Contact class represents a contact in a Polycom SoundPoint IP, SoundStation IP, or VVX phone's local contact directory. This class is intended to be used with Polycom::Contact::Directory, which parses entire contact directory files, extracting the contacts, and enabling you to read or modify them.

CONSTRUCTOR ^

new ( %fields )

  use Polycom::Contact;
  my $contact = Polycom::Contact->new(first_name => 'Bob', contact => 1234);

Returns a newly created Polycom::Contact object.

In all, each Polycom::Contact object can have the following fields:

  first_name       - first name
  last_name        - last name
  contact          - phone number or URL (required)
  speed_index      - speed dial index (1 - 9999)
  label            - label to show on speed dial keys
  ring_type        - distinctive incoming ring tone (1 - 22)
  divert           - phone number or URL to divert incoming calls to
  auto_reject      - automatically reject calls from this contact (0 = no, 1 = yes)
  auto_divert      - automatically divert calls from this contact (0 = no, 1 = yes)
  buddy_watching   - include in the list of watched phones (0 = no, 1 = yes)
  buddy_block      - block from watching this phone (0 = no, 1 = yes)

Of those fields, the contact field is the only required field; without a unique contact field, the phone will not load the contact.

ACCESSORS ^

first_name

  my $fn = $contact->first_name;
  $contact->first_name('Bob');  # Set the first_name to "Bob"

last_name

  my $ln = $contact->last_name;
  $contact->last_name('Smith');  # Set the last_name to "Smith"

contact

The phone number, extension, or URL of the contact. This field must be present (i.e. not blank) and must be unique.

  my $num = $contact->contact;
  $contact->contact('1234');  # Set the contact number to 1234

speed_index

The speed dial index for the contact (1 - 9999).

  my $sd = $contact->speed_index;
  $contact->speed_index(5);  # Set the speed index to 5

Contacts that have a speed dial index specified are listed in the phone's speed dial menu and are mapped to unused line keys for quick access.

label

The label to show on speed dial keys (e.g. "Manager").

  my $lb = $contact->label;
  $contact->label('Sales');  # Set the label to "Sales"

ring_type

The distinctive incoming ring tone for this contact (1 - 22).

  my $rt = $contact->ring_type;
  $contact->ring_type(2);  # Set the ring type to 2

The ring type number must correspond to a ring type listed in the Settings > Basic > Ring Type menu on the phone. When an incoming call is received from the contact, the specified ring tone will play instead of the default ring tone.

divert

The phone number or URL to divert incoming calls to.

  my $divert = $contact->divert;
  $contact->divert(2345);  # Set the divert phone number to 2345

auto_reject

Specifies whether to automatically reject calls from this contact (0 = no, 1 = yes).

  print "Calls from $contact will be automatically rejected" if ($contact->auto_reject);
  $contact->auto_reject(1);  # Enable auto reject

auto_divert

Specifies whether to automatically divert calls from this contact (0 = no, 1 = yes).

  print "Calls from $contact will be automatically diverted" if ($contact->auto_divert);
  $contact->auto_divert(1);  # Enable auto divert

buddy_watching

Specifies whether to include this contact in the list of watched phones (0 = no, 1 = yes).

  print "$contact is in the watched list" if ($contact->buddy_watching);
  $contact->buddy_watching(1);  # Add this contact to the buddy list

buddy_block

Specifies whether to block this contact from watching this phone (0 = no, 1 = yes).

  print "$contact is blocked from watching" if ($contact->buddy_block);
  $contact->buddy_block(1);  # Prevent this contact from watching this phone

METHODS ^

is_valid

  if (!$contact->is_valid)
  {
      print "$contact is invalid.\n";
  }

Returns undef if the contact is invalid (i.e. it has no contact value specified), or 1 otherwise.

delete

  my @contacts = $dir->search({first_name => 'Bob'});
  $contacts[0]->delete;

Removes the contact from the directory it belongs to (see Polycom::Contact::Directory). If the Polycom::Contact object was created from scratch, rather than from an existing contact directory object, then calling delete has no effect.

diff ( $contact2 )

  my @differences = $contact1->diff($contact2);

Returns an array of contact field names that do not match (e.g. "First Name", "Speed Dial").

SEE ALSO ^

Polycom::Contact::Directory - A closely related module that parses the XML-based local contact directory file used by Polycom SoundPoint IP, SoundStation IP, and VVX VoIP phones, and can be used to read, modify, or create contacts in the file.
