Description:This is not major, but since there is no option for a caller to press an extension and have it handled in a macro, i tried assigning a channel variable to a macro argument.  It will not work, i have tried many things, it says its setting it but the following noop shows an empty variable.  So.
; Lets say ${ARG2} is 601
Set(_SOMEVAR=${ARG2} - CLI says setting SOMEVAR to 601
NoOp(${SOMEVAR}) - displays ""

i test it, and it's ok in 1.2.4 and trunk:

exten => s,1,Set(_SOMEVAR=${ARG1})
exten => s,n,NoOp(${SOMEVAR})
exten => s,n,Dial(${ARG1},,t)

   -- Executing Dial("SIP/", "SIP/8386||t") in new stack

Can you please try to assign from ${ARG2} since that was what I was using, instead of ARG1... I was running plain 1.2.4 and could produce every time.  Weird.  Please let me know your results and if you dont have problems i will ask to close this and i will look into it

no problem with ${ARG2}, tested in 1.2 and brunch

mike240se:  are you sure you have an ARG2?  Are you perhaps mistaking the macro name as ARG1 (it isn't)?  A sample dialplan (including Macro call) would help.

Since no one else is seeing this problem, I am going to upload a sample of my dialplan asap.

Reopen if/when you have an extensions.conf to upload.
