How to show dialog to the user to change settings to allow app to make and manage calls after the user selects "Don't ask again"

I am trying to show the permission dialog even if the user selects "Don't ask again" when they click a button using the below code. But this doesn't seem to work. Please help

Dim context As JavaObject
context.InitializeStatic("anywheresoftware.b4a.BA")
context = context.GetField("applicationContext")
Dim settings As JavaObject
settings.InitializeStatic("android.provider.Settings.System")
settings.RunMethod("putInt", Array As Object(context.RunMethod("getContentResolver", Null), _
"READ_PHONE_STATE", 1 ))

It is not possible to show the dialog. You need to ask the user to enable the permission in the device settings.

You can help user to change settings. For example,
B4X:
Dim Intent As Intent
Intent.Initialize ("android.settings.APPLICATION_DETAILS_SETTINGS", "package:" & Application.PackageName)
StartActivity(Intent)

Semen Matusovskiy, you are right. But using your code, the user should click on permissions to go to that screen. I am looking for an option to go to App Permissions screen directly.
