  • LaunchCmd()


    Lua   → VBScript


    This function calls (launches) a given command, i.e. launches any given application.

    Please see the Introduction chapter for some usage instructions.


    Please note: the Lua Beta Testing versions of SwyxWare (13.1x) do not limit any file/command access. In the final release version file/command access will only be permitted in the SwyxWare CPE (customer premise equipment) version. Within the cloud versions (SDC and SwyxON) file/command access will not be permitted.


    -- LaunchCmd
    -- Calls/launches the given command
    -- Parameter:
    --  sCommand        command to be called
    -- Return:
    --  boolean         true, false or nil
    --  string          output of command
    function LaunchCmd ( sCommand )
        PBXScript.OutputTrace ("------> LaunchCmd ( " .. sCommand .. " )")
        local bReturn = false
        local sReturn = ""
        local file = io.popen(sCommand)
        if file ~= nil then
            sReturn = file:read('*all')
            local tReturn = {file:close()}
            bReturn = tReturn[1]
        PBXScript.OutputTrace ("bReturn = " .. tostring(bReturn))
        PBXScript.OutputTrace ("sReturn = " .. sReturn)
        PBXScript.OutputTrace ("<------ LaunchCmd")
        return bReturn, sReturn


    Please note that this command will be launched on the SwyxServer machine. No windows will be opened, and no user input can be made. So only start command line applications which do not require any user input.


    As the call routing is executed by the Swyx Server service, the command will also be executed by the Swyx Server service. That means, it is executed by the Windows user, the Swyx Server service is running under (usually this is the local SwyxServiceAccount user).


    If your command contains back slashes, you need to exscape them. So instead of "DIR C:\Announcements\*.WAV" you need to pass "DIR C:\\Announcements\\*.WAV".


    This function makes use of the Server Script API function PBXScript.OutputTrace() to write trace information into the SwyxServer trace file.
