I am currently doing an automation in Tasker wherein I can open URLs on browser one by one. So far, I have successfully opened URLs by putting the URL list in a text file and have Tasker access it. My problem is, I want to know if each URL has been successfully or better, get the site content? How do I do this? Even if a site has been successfully opened, HTTPR still returns -1. I don't understand why. I also don't know how to use HTTP Get. I'm using Android Emulator by the way. Please help! Thanks!


There's a nice German tutorial on AndroidPIT (same page using Google Translate), explaining this in detail. Moreover, you might want to check with the Q&A How to check success status of opened URL in Tasker?.

  • To prove your assumption, check my profile – and find out you've hit the mark: today - 3y7m makes something around June 2012 :) As for the second part: I've never worked with this, so I prefer to refer to the suggested duplicate :)
