  • CurHour()


    Lua   → VBScript   SwxWare v13.10


    The function returns the current hour (01-24) according to the script user's location.


    local nHour = CurHour()


    or if being used directly within a GSE property dialog, e.g. in a Say Number block to directly announce the current hour to the caller:





    This function returns a number value.


    This function can be called at any time within the call routing script.


    The current time will be requested making use of the Server Script API function PBXUser.Now(). This ensures that the location configuration (time zone) of the script user will be considered.



    The CurHour() function can be used for a neat little example:


    Lets assume you want to greet every caller with a nice welcome announcement. But this should not be one static annoucement, but a little bit more dynamic:


    • in the morning it includes "Good morning, and welcome to..." 
    • over the day it includes "Good day, and welcome to..."
    • in the evening it includes "Good evening, and welcome to..."

    You can use the Choose Announcement block, to setup all three announcement and use the CurHour() function to differentiate between them:
