I can't get my head round the asterisk gotoif/else. I'm using the 'n' numbering, but i want to do something like this:
switch (MyVar)
{
    case 1: exten => s,n,(dial1),Dial(SIP/VoIPProvider1/${dialednum},30,g)
    case 2: exten => s,n,(dial2),Dial(SIP/VoIPProvider2/${dialednum},30,g) 
    case 2: exten => s,n,(dial3),Dial(SIP/VoIPProvider3/${dialednum},30,g)
}
carry on with lots more stuff..

Open in new window

i.e. i don't want to execute a hangup() after each branch, i have a lot of other stuff common to case 1,2,3 i want to add.

I am not totally sure I understand your question but does this snip it help --

[case-like-structure]

exten =>  s,n, GoToIf(MyVar = 1? Provider1,1)
exten =>  s,n, GotoIf(MyVar  = 2? Provider2,1)
extern=>  s,n,GoToIf(MyVAr  = 3? Provider3,1)
extern => s,n,playback(silence/2&sorry-cant-let-you-do-that)
extern=>  s,n,HangUp()

extern => Provider1,1,NoOP()
extern => Provider1,2,Dial(SIP/VoIPProvider1/${dialednum},30,g)
extern => Provider1,3,GoTo(Folowup,1)

extern => Provider2,1,NoOP()
extern => Provider2,2,Dial(SIP/VoIPProvider1/${dialednum},30,g)
extern => Provider2,3,GoTo(Folowup,1)

extern => Provider3,1,NoOP()
extern => Provider3,2,Dial(SIP/VoIPProvider1/${dialednum},30,g)
extern => Provider3,3,GoTo(Folowup,1)

extern => FollowUp,1,NoOP()
extern => FollowUp,n,PlayBack(silence/2,Well-You-Got-Here-Now What)
extern => FollowUp,n,Hangup()

I'm doing as you suggested, but I'm getting " Sent to invalid extension 'Provider1'
here's my extensionts.conf:
exten => s,n, GoToIf(${STAT(e,/home/silas/csharp/DialPlanBranches/B1/ChooseMe.txt)}=1 ? Provider1,1 )
exten => s,n, GoToIf(${STAT(e,/home/silas/csharp/DialPlanBranches/B2/ChooseMe.txt)}=1 ? Provider2,1 )
exten => s,n, GoToIf(${STAT(e,/home/silas/csharp/DialPlanBranches/B3/ChooseMe.txt)}=1 ? Provider3,1 )
exten => s,n, GoToIf(${STAT(e,/home/silas/csharp/DialPlanBranches/B4/ChooseMe.txt)}=1 ? Provider4,1 )
exten => s,n, GoToIf(${STAT(e,/home/silas/csharp/DialPlanBranches/B5/ChooseMe.txt)}=1 ? Provider5,1 )

exten => Provider1,1,Dial(SIP/VoIPProvider/${dialednum},30,g)
exten => Provider2,1,Dial(SIP/VoIPProviderSipgate/${dialednum},30,g)
exten => Provider3,1,Dial(SIP/VoIPProvider/${dialednum},30,g)
exten => Provider4,1,Dial(SIP/VoIPProvider/${dialednum},30,g)
exten => Provider5,1,Dial(SIP/VoIPProvider/${dialednum},30,g)

I don't want to sound ungrateful, but your code:
extern=>  s,n,GoToIf(MyVAr  = 3? Provider3,1)

Open in new window

the syntax is slightly wrong!!! it should be:

extern=>  s,n,GoToIf(MyVAr  = 3?: Provider3,1)
extra colon when only one if-then!!!

Open in new window

That was throwing my dialplan out. I am very grateful for seeing the 'named extenstion' way of branching, and you do remember things a bit better when you have to work for them!

Sorry,

    I haven't had to write a dial plan context in a few months. Was working from memory.

    Glad you got it working.
