[asterisk-users] ODBC dialplan looping problem

Thanks for the reply Doug!

How might I incorporate this into my dialplan?

Sorry, learning as I go....

On a side note, any idea how to strip off the # at the end of a string?  ${EXTEN:0:6} doesn't do the trick.

Is this even possible?

Why don't you use read instead?  This is what I have:


exten => s,n,Answer(500)
exten => s,n,Read(get-room-num,conf-getconfno)

; *********************************************************
; Get conference room number, if number entered is 99999 **
; jump to verify.                                        **
; *********************************************************

exten => s,n,NoOP(${conf-getchannel})


Do some mysql magic here


exten => s,n,GotoIf($["${conference.room}" != ""]?s-process,1:s-notexist,1)
