Description:I suppose that it should be more useful to use the hint feature in extensions.conf as an application instead of a parameter in dialplan. so it can be used in an AGI program.


this app. can be something like:
Hint(exten,chann,status) or Hint(exten,chann).

What should happen when you call this application?

my problem is:
1- when you have a generic dialplan which is managed through an AGI program, you lose the hint feature of *. (isn't it right?)
2- some sip devices wrongly show their channel state to *. like my ata(audiocodes) which shows always it's state as "Down" but everything works fine. i want to generate my own state for that device.

btw, lack of a clear way to have an accurate call presence in * to work with known devices like snom, cisco, polycom is the main problem.

You want to add an hint with an application call instead of adding an extension?

- when i have just one AGI program to dial an extension instead of an entry foreach extension in extensions.conf, is there a better way to add a hint for an extension?
what i think is the ability to add it by calling an application.
