    None of the XML objects includes an onscreen checkbox.  If you had 3 options to select, possibly you could have a series of 3 screens (CiscoIPPhoneText objects) which custom softkeys corresponding to the options.
    For #2, the Idle URL functionality may be what you are looking for.  It allows you to configure a service URL which is executed whenever the phone becomes idle - this will occur once the phone boots up, but also after each call.

    The phones only render the special XML objects defined in that SDK.  They have no ability to process HTML/javascript or other kinds of markup.  If something besides the XML objects is sent, the phone just renders it as plain text.
    As for launching a service only once upon bootup that may be tricky.  About the only approach I can think of would be to monitor the device using CTI (TAPI or JTAPI), which will give you events when the phone goes in- or out-of-service.  The application could then send an XML command to the phone to launch the service when it sees it come in-service.  However, this requires writing a more complex application, and there are performance impact implications if monitoring a large number of phones.

    Hi All,
    I am able to load xml onto the cisco IP phone using cisco unified communication manager express. I have two questions related to this:
    1. Is there a way to add checkbox in the xml pages. Because I understand from the documents is that it cant udnerstand html. What I am trying to do is, display a page on phone with checkboxes and user selects few and press a button I should be able to dial some number.
    2. Is there a way of loading the url on the front screen of the phone. I mean a service url gets displayed on the front screen when the phone gets booted up.
    Thank in advance.

    Thanks for your reply.
    Is it possible with Javascript/asp pages? When I tried with a Javascript page, it just displays the source of Javascript on the  phone, wont really interpret it.
    I am not looking for an application to be displayed at idle time, but an application to be launched after the phone bootsup in the main screen.
