Map audible alarm only on 'ping' objects warn or down



Trying to modify 'An icon AA' into a custom file, to only alert on if a ICMP/PING Sensor has gone down, but im hitting walls as filter_type's etc dont work here.

<!--Status Icons: Status and Audible Alert (If Alarms > 0)-->

<div class="map_object map_icon <#sensor type="colorclassofstate" prefix="map_iconcolor_" id="<@objectid>">" id="<@itemid>" objectid="<@objectid>" subid="<@subid>" style="<#mapobject type="topleftcoordinates" subid="<@subid>" mode="<@editmode>">">
<#mapobject type="objectgrip" mode="<@editmode>">
<#mapobject type="htmlbefore" subid="<@subid>">

    <#objectstatus name="warnsens" id="<@objectid>" filter_type="ping">
    <#objectstatus name="downsens" id="<@objectid>" filter_type="ping">
<div id="alarmsound"></div>
<script type="text/javascript">

  function playalarm() {
    if($('#audiblealarm').length <= 0) {
      $("#alarmsound").empty().append('<audio id="audiblealarm"><source src="/sounds/beep.ogg" type="audio/ogg" /><source src="/sounds/beep.mp3" type="audio/mpeg3" /></audio>');
    var audiblealarm = document.getElementById("audiblealarm");

  var errors1="<#objectstatus name="downsens" id="<@objectid>" show="textraw">";
  var errors2="<#objectstatus name="warnsens" id="<@objectid>" show="textraw">";
  var errors=errors1*1.0+errors2*1.0;

	if (errors > 0) {
		setTimeout(playalarm, 2000);

We'll have a web developer take a look at this :) Bear with us!

Asked the developer about it and unfortunately, it's not possible to do it. You could only use the down state sensor table and check the content of it via JavaScript. Unfortunately, we can't support that because it will be rather complicated to develop :/
