Is it possible to have a BLF Hint showing recording state for an extension?

is there a possible hint, that an extension could subscribe to (with BLF button) showing recording status of current conversation?

(FreePBX, A* Ver. 11.21.0)

The short answer is “No”.

The longer answer is “Not yet, but you could add something like that with some custom programming.”

There is a spot in the current system contexts where the recording file name is interrogated and whether a recording is desired is checked, so adding a flag to a custom hint at that point might work. If you put in some code there that sets up a special hint on a ‘per extension’ sort of basis, you could track it across an enterprise.

Be sure to turn the flag off when the call is shut down, and you’re reasonably golden.
