Dim CallReason As String = "In order for this program to dial phone numbers, your permission is required. The next screen will ask for that permission. If you deny permission, then this program can not dial phone numbers for you"

Sub DialNumber(PhoneNum as String)
    Dim PC As PhoneCalls
    Dim RP As RuntimePermissions
    If RP.Check(RP.PERMISSION_CALL_PHONE) = False Then        'if no existing phone call permission
        MsgboxAsync(CallReason,"Call Permission")        'explain why this apps needs call permission
        Wait For MsgBox_Result (Result As Int)

        RP.CheckAndRequest(RP.PERMISSION_CALL_PHONE)        'prompt for permission
        Wait For Activity_PermissionResult (Permission As String, AskResult As Boolean)
        If AskResult = False Then    'user did not give permission
            Return    'abort dial
        End If
    End If

    StartActivity(PC.Call(PhoneNum))     'dial number
End Sub
