[Freeswitch-users] Dialplan/PHP esl variable problem.

I believe that it's only sync in outbound mode. Maybe it would be easier to do what you want in outbound mode instead?

ESL execute is async, so you will need to wait for the correct event to be returned, that tells you it's finished. EXECUTE_COMPLETE I think the event is called..

Actually if execute is async the Wiki is wrong:


execute($app[, $arg][, $uuid])

Execute a dialplan application, and wait for a response from the server. On socket connections not anchored to a channel (most of the time inbound), all three arguments are required -- $uuid specifies the channel to execute the application on.

Returns an ESLevent object containing the response from the server. The getHeader("Reply-Text") method of this ESLevent object returns the server's response. The server's response will contain "+OK [Success Message]" on success or "-ERR [Error Message]" on failure.

See the examples below for information on how to get a uuid to use when calling execute().

executeAsync($app[, $arg][, $uuid])

Same as execute, but doesn't wait for a response from the server.

This works by causing the underlying call to execute() to append "async: true" header in the message sent to the channel. "

As you can see there is a specific executeAsync call documented. Are they both actually async?

That aside, does this code look OK?

$esl = new ESLconnection('localhost','8021','ClueCon');

$event = $esl->events('plain', 'ALL');
$event = $esl->filter("Unique-ID",$uuid);

sleep (2);

$event = $esl->execute("play_and_get_digits","4 11 1 5000 # ivr/ivr-please_enter_the_phone_number.wav ivr/ivr-that_was_an_invalid_entry.wav target_num \d+", "$uuid");

//$foo = $uuid . ' target_num';

while ($event->getType() != 'CHANNEL_EXECUTE_COMPLETE' ) {

$event=$esl->sendRecv("api uuid_getvar $uuid target_num");
