jQuery Plug-in: Touch Swipe Events

by Jamie Carl | December 18, 2015 at 9:33 am
I have just created a cool little jQuery plug-in that I wanted to share.  This plug-in simplifies detection of touch swipe actions on mobile & touchscreen devices by doing all the heavy lifting for you.  It has parameters to set thresholds for minimum distance the swip must travel as well as minimum time the swipe must take to be considered a swipe event.

The definitive guide to asterisk DND with the Cisco SPA5xx SIP Phone

The Problem

When someone calls through to our receptionist and she tries to transfer the call to another phone that just happens to be on DND, she gets a busy tone (as expected) and the call fails.  The problem is that the BLF on our attendant console is still GREEN, indicating the phone should be available, so she doesn't know that the phone is on DND until she tries to call it.  
What we would like to have is the BLF on the attendant console to go RED when the phone is set to DND.
