useCallFrame(): DailyCall

This hook manages a call frame instance in order to embed Daily Prebuilt. When manually managing call frame instances in React, it's easy to run into issues, like Error: Duplicate DailyIframe instances are not allowed, specifically in React's Strict Mode. useCallFrame() helps prevent that.

optionsDailyFactoryOptionsContains all factory properties that are passed to createFrame(). Check DailyCall properties for details.
shouldCreateInstanceFunctionOptional callback function with a boolean return to control when the call frame instance should be created.
