Tasker is making this simple task complicated.

I am doing a "Send Intent" action within a task and I need the extra 1 and extra 2 to be a string concatenated to a number variable concatenated to another string.

In most languages it'd be something like

extra1 = "str1:" + integer + "str2"

It'd be easier if there were spaces between the strings; it'd just be str1 %integer str2, but there are no spaces to separate things out.

How do I accomplish this?

  • In which language does Tasker "scripts" work? – Grimoire Jul 11 '16 at 7:54
  • @DeathMaskSalesman Tasker scripts are Tasker's own special language. – Dan Hulme Jul 11 '16 at 12:57
  • @DanHulme Oh, I see. Then I can't help, sorry. – Grimoire Jul 11 '16 at 14:15
  • I found that Tasker supports javascript snippets, I opted to do most of my coding in that. Tasker's coding setup is painful at best. – Slight Jul 14 '16 at 21:25

Set a new variable with To field as %var1%var2%anyvarname
