call problem with power apps

hi everyone, 

 

I want to create a bouton on power app to call a phone with the Launch("tel://my phone number") command. 

but in my phone number there is an "#" sign and i think power apps cut the phone number just before the #. 

for example : in power apps the button is triggered by on select : Launch("tel://123456,1,123#,456") and when i clic on the button the caller is opened and i can read on it 123456,1,123. it miss the #,456

 

this phone number call an automatic answering machine.

 

can somebody help me ? 🙂

Have you tried something like this?:

Launch("tel://123456,1,123"&Char(35)&",456")
