Description:Currently as a conference user or admin there isn't a way to find out how many are currently in this conference.  The user/admin menu should have an option for this.  The attached patch adds an option "3" to the user/admin menus that calls count_exec.

Do you have a disclaimer on file?

Next time, when reporting a bug, please specify the CVS version on which ya've made the patch.
Try to attach your patch as a .txt format, so windows 2000 can read your patch faster.

I have submitted a disclaimer.  Please let me know how to attach a patch as a .txt format, is it just adding a .txt extension?

By: brc007 (brc007) 2005-02-14 22:53:55.000-0600

Yep, simply add .txt to the filename when you upload files. The reason is so that the file will open in the browser, rather then start a download.

We need to know the prompts to be updated for this one as well.  Should it play a message like "there are currently <foo> callers in the conference"?

By: fineberg (fineberg) 2005-02-16 03:33:15.000-0600

That prompt is already handled by the MeetMeCount application as called by count_exec.  The only prompt that would be needed is an additional option on conf-adminmenu and conf-usermenu to say "press 3 for the number of users in the conference"

There is already an option 3.  Please move this to option 4.

Oops, you are correct, my tree was out of date.  New patch attached.

Can we get that prompt recorded so we can go ahead and merge this?

Maybe both patch, this and bug ASTERISK-3152 should be put together

I'm sorry but I don't know how to get a prompt file for this.  Could someone point me in the right direction and I'll take care of it if I can?  Thanks.

at http://thevoice.digium.com you can get prompts, or I think the wiki maintains a list of prompts that need to be recorded so that they can be done in bulk.

By: fineberg (fineberg) 2005-03-05 14:12:34.000-0600

Thanks, I'll follow up on those.

By: fineberg (fineberg) 2005-03-13 13:23:20.000-0600

Sorry it took so long but I added the needed prompts to the wiki page for Prompts for patches http://www.voip-info.org/tiki-index.php?page=Asterisk+Sound+Files+for+Patches

I think that should be stay has an option.
And recording the new prompt with hard-coded (for 4...) in the conf-usermenu isn't a good idea.

And why are you using count_exec instead of ast_conference.users?

By: fineberg (fineberg) 2005-03-28 17:31:23.000-0600

I'm sorry, I don't know what you mean by:

"I think that should be stay has an option."

as for recording a prompt with a hard coded "4", I don't know how to get around that as the existing prompt is already recorded that way.

And as to why to use count_exec, that way I don't need to reproduce any of the code that speaks the cound to the correct channel as I would if I got the count myself from ast_conference.users.

Are the prompts done on this one yet?

By: () 2005-04-18 17:41:23

Why not just have the ability to say the number instead of recording it? We already have a three recorded, so the prompt would be : "To hear the number of users currently in this conference" + "press 3" (which is already recorded). So all you would have to do is call this, or even specify in a config file somehow.


pressound = press3.gsm

Is this ready minus the prompt sounds?  If so, can someone please take ownership and get the prompts?

By: Olle Johansson (oej) 2005-06-05 17:24:39

Any updates to this issue?


By: Michael Jerris (mikej) 2005-06-19 12:11:11

It appears OP has lost interest in this.  If anyone is willing to take responsibiliry for this please re-open.
