Installing a VADTools design component into your 3CX Voice Application Designer toolbox

The 3CX Voice Application Designer is an innovative tool for creating IVR (Interactive Voice Response) Applications, or Voice Applications.  It is a familiar drag-and-drop experience that Visual Studio developers will get the hang of pretty quick.

Additionally, there are new 3rd party components released by BlueVoice, that are distributed though www.UtahVoIPStore.com

I thought I’d post a quick introduction to it, by showing how to install a component into you designer tool box.  In this example I am using the CommandLine component, which lets you call the command line from your voice application.


First, copy the ZIP file that came with your component to the root folder of your VAD project.

Now extract the zip file into the root directory.

The component will be in the root directory and the Libraries directory will have a new DLL file.

Open your VAD project and right-click on the project in project explorer to add the new component to your project.

Navigate to the root folder of your project and select the new component.

The component is now ready for you to use in your toolbox.
