Trying to write something in the macro language. or Asterisk, in the .conf files

is there a case or switch statement for this ?

can you show me a good lanuage reference
http://www.voip-info.org/wiki/view/Asterisk+cmd+Goto
this site is ok, but the search engine not smart.

What I want to do is somethign like

 IF extension = 300
         if arg2:2:5 = "505   set flag =1
         if arg2:2:5 = "533   set flag =2
         if arg2:2:5 = "544   set flag =3
 end if

or as a case
if extension = 300
switch(arg2:2:5)
     case 505 : set flag =1 break
     case 533 : set flag =2 break
     case 544 : set flag =3 break
else
     set flag=3
end

Will accept suggestions. how to do it better

The Lanuage looks like this
exten => a,n,Set(FLAG1=1})
exten => a,n,GotoIf($ARG2}" = "1"]?acontext)
BLA BLA BLA

Dialplan has no switch or case statements.

Alternatively, you can use AGI with PHP and get the job done quite easily.

I use this:

Something like this maybe...

exten => s,n,ExecIf($[${ARG2:1:3} = 500]?Set(FLAG=0))
exten => s,n,ExecIf($[${ARG2:1:3} = 501]?Set(FLAG=1))
exten => s,n,ExecIf($[${ARG2:1:3} = 502]?Set(FLAG=2))

exten => s,n,GotoIf($[${FLAG} = 0]?label0)
exten => s,n,GotoIf($[${FLAG} = 1]?label1)
exten => s,n,GotoIf($[${FLAG} = 2]?label2)
exten => s,n,NoOp(Condition not met.  Hangup!)
exten => s,n,MacroExit()

exten => s,n(lable0),........
exten => s,n,MacroExit()
exten => s,n(lable1),........
exten => s,n,MacroExit()
exten => s,n(lable2),........
exten => s,n,MacroExit()

Here is yet another approach that I use sometimes:

[globals]
CASE505=1
CASE533=2
CASE544=3

[acontext]
..
exten => s,n,Set(flag=${CASE${ARG2:2:3}})

It is a very compact way of doing multiple cases, but is weak regarding default values where, say, ARG2 doesn't match any of the expected cases. I'm sure that extra code could be added to assign a default value to flag if needed.

I notice that the question also asks how to construct an if-then-else block. I would do it like this:

[acontext]
..
exten => _X.,n,Gotoif($[${EXTEN} = 300] ? match)
; Is not 300
exten => _X.,n,Noop(Extension does not equal 300)
exten => _X.,n,...
exten => _X.,n,Goto(done)
; Is 300
exten => _X.,n(match),Noop(Extension does equal 300)
exten => _X.,n,...
;
exten => _X.,n(done),...

[selectcase]

exten => s,1(select case),NoOp(Case ${ARG2:1:3})
exten => s,n,GotoIf($[${ARG2:1:3} <> ""]?case${ARG2:1:3}:select case)
exten => s,n,Hangup()

exten => s,n(case500),NoOp(500)
exten => s,n,Hangup()

exten => s,n(case550),NoOp(550)
exten => s,n,Hangup()

exten => s,n(case580),NoOp(580)
exten => s,n,Hangup()

I did not try the

But Looked great,
