I want to make a real time program that shows the inbound calls. The problem is that i don't know where to get the call status, like hold, calling or answered.

Asterisk has a Variable ${CALLERID(num)} to get the number but don't know where to get the rest of the info.

Hope the above will help


To get information from Asterisk you can use the Asterisk Manager Interface (AMI), there are some information about it available at the-asterisk-book.com and voip-info.org. Then I am sure you can monitor the status of peers, channels and if they are calling or answering.

I hope this will help you.
