Version: 5.9.2 Tasker (Post Serg R * # 93627176)

Officialchange history
version information

There are 3 official stable versions of Tasker:
- version for Android ≥ 5.0
- version for Android 4.x
- version for Android<4.0 (i.e., Androids 2.3 and below, for clarity, we assume that there are no longer any Android 3.x).
Only the Android version ≥ 5.0 is being developed, the rest are frozen. Laid-up apk - the standard version of the Google Play store, uses Google Play Licensing technology to verify the license (starting with version Tasker 5.5).
If you have problems with the license, you can a) just buy Tasker and forget about them; b) use version 5.2.bf2 from the "Past versions" section.
Breaking Tasker is not recommended, there are a lot of opportunities in all can not be verified, so you'll never know, running hacked version or not. The topic has gained a lot of experience with hacked versions, it is very negative.
In the version name after the number there may be a suffix .bf with numbers, for example, version 5.2.bf1. bf means bugfix, i.e. update of the stable official version, in which there is nothing new, only bugs are fixed. The suffix .bf and the number after it are considered part of the version number.
There are no "mods" / "Rusks" for the program. Tasker requires neither.
In addition to stable versions of Tasker, there are beta versions, you can install them from the Google Play store by subscribing to the Android App testing beta program - Google Play Beta testing on the Tasker program page on Google Play. Beta versions have the suffix b after the number, for example, 5.1b. Links to beta versions in the topic header are not published. The beta versions themselves in this thread.not discussed, their support and advice-answers are handled directly by the developer. In this topic, the Tasker developer does not appear, so with all questions on beta versions, contact the developer through official channels, for example, on the official Tasker forum.
Up to version Tasker 5.1 inclusive (including versions for Android<5.0) two versions of the program were simultaneously released: an option for Google Play (had the suffix m after the version number, for example, 5.1m) and a directly purchased version of the program from the developer (Direct-Purchase version), which did not have the suffix m.
The variant without the suffix m was also official, had the same functionality as the option for Google Play, but additionally supported encryption functions. The variant without the suffix m is not broken, not tied to Google Play, with built-in license verification functions. (Possiblemethod of "getting" registration. If crashes when you try to enter the code, try thisversion of).
Also up to version Tasker 5.1 inclusive (including versions for Android<5.0) after the version number there could be a u - update suffix, a complete analogue of the .bf suffix for current versions, i.e. update of the stable official version, in which there is nothing new, only bugs are fixed. The letter u and the number after it are considered part of the version number. For example, version 4.3u4m is a stable version for Google Play, compared to 4.3m there is nothing new in it, however, bugs have been fixed; version 4.3u4 - version 4.3u4 directly purchased from the developer.

ATTENTION!!!The rules of the topic. It is recommended to read carefully.
1. This topic follows Forum Rules , we ask everyone to observe them. Of course, in the subject act and Section Rules , in particular:
1.1. All pictures in messages should be hidden under spoiler .
Comment: This topic is not strictly moderated, messages that violate the rules will not be immediately deleted. However, it is known that some participants of the topic ignore messages with violations, therefore you risk not getting an answer to your burning question or getting an incomplete answer to it. And it is still unknown what is worse.
2. If you do not have the time or desire to read all the pages of a topic, then first use the search function in the topic (Section 4.4 Forum Rules ). Almost always you will find either a clear answer or a direction in which you need to move on. It is wiser to clarify the direction by asking a question in the topic. In the message with the question it is better to indicate what you were looking for, what you found, what you read from what you found, what you understood from what you read.
3. Even for the implementation of the simplest tasks desirable possess at least elementary skills and concepts related to programming (even if very superficial, at the school level).
Comment: But if you don’t have it, but you really want to realize something, you may not have it. Even the initial ones. Totally.
Important note: It is preferable to use English localization in Tasker (that is, English-speaking Tasker), Russian localization in places can confuse you, lead you on the wrong path, make you tear your hair where you still have it, etc.Example of "Russian" localization.
4. Beginners are encouraged to start with local ones. courses local ready solutions It is not harmful to look into the local library .
5. After asking a question and getting a “slurred”, as it seems to you, answer, read it again. This topic is a completely self-sufficient and unique organism. As a rule, each answer contains the words "anchors", hooking which in the "search", you will find a sufficient number of answers, and sometimes 100% ready-made solutions.
The note- A brief practical guide to finding a topic in the words-anchors: "how and what to look for in the subject".
6. A clearly formulated question with all-all-all the nuances increases the chances of promptly getting an answer. Information is never redundant.
- The message from one sentence is regarded by the regulars as an invitation to talk about the weather. And since here it is a deviation from the topic, in response you will most likely receive an offer to get acquainted with these rules.
- The message from one phrase "tried, did not work" means that they tried with the battery removed from the device, the screen was black, nothing happened.
7. If you can't write a profile yourself, and you want to contact the topic for help, then:
- describe in as much detail as possible the problem you want to solve and your problem, i.e. what exactly fails. Different people fail differently, you know.
- Be sure to post what has already happened in Tasker’s Description format (see FAQ, question 10 ).
Note: This "that" does not necessarily have to have any relation to the issue. We should know, at a minimum, the degree of your acquaintance with Tasker and the level of your programming skills. Otherwise, you risk getting an answer that you cannot understand. Yes, if absolutely nothing has happened yet, it means that you do not want to write a profile. If you think a little, then agree with the last statement.
Note: Read the discussionWishlist, answer, clarification, it shows how important it is to paint your Wishlist in detail.
8. If you want to share your decision, issue it in accordance with the FAQ, question 9 .

And if, in addition, to learn how to call the functions of the Java language, you can get absolute power over your machine.
Also in Tasker you can:
- Create your own shortcuts, including dynamic ones, and widgets, including in the quick settings panel
- Create your own user interface usingscenes ( short description )
- Create your own applications
Frequently asked Questions

1. I can not update / install Tasker, what should I do?
- You are trying to update the Tasker version purchased directly from the developer (Direct-Purchase version) to Tasker 5.2 or higher. Since, starting with version 5.2, Tasker is distributed exclusively through the Google Play app store, such an update is impossible. Before installing, remove the program, after making a backup copy of their profiles. Few details - in the answers to the questionTasker (Post shahmatist2 # 74473831)(the following two messages).
More information about the differences in the options and versions of the program - in the sectionwith version information.
- You install the version of Tasker below4.5 and you don’t have the Google Maps Android API library in the firmware, i.e. com.google.android.maps.jar and com.google.android.maps.xml files. They can be found in this topic, using the search, or search in the firmware for your device. A couple of recipes: Tasker (Post pioneer2010 # 15274629) and Tasker (Post coolkaas # 19016305) .

2. How to import a project / profile / task / scene?
For importing, “long tap” is used on the headings of the tabs profiles, tasks, scenes, on the headings of the project tabs or on the tab with the icon “home” (where everything that is not part of any project is located), the menu item is called Import. Files for import are in xml format and .prj.xml extensions (project), .prf.xml (profile), tsk.xml (task), .scn.tsk (scene). The project file already contains all the profiles, tasks and scenes of the project.
In addition to the XML format in Tasker, there is a Description format, written about it in10 FAQ.

3. Do Tasker need root-rights (root)?
- Some Tasker actions require root-rights, some profiles laid out here, in the section MCI, require root-rights.
- Part of the action (e.g., action System Lock - lock device) need to Tasker scripting device administrator. Sometimes (for example, an event New Window), is required to Tasker service was included in the special features. Also (eg, for Notification events), it may be necessary to allow for Tasker was allowed access to the notification of third party applications. Several examples of such special settingsTasker (Post just @ man # 50495922).
- Part of the context and action require Specials System permissions kotorye impossible to issue through the regular application interface "Settings" Android. For example, Secure Setting action requires authorizationWRITE_SECURE_SETTINGS (examples and explanations), The state of Media Button - permitsSET_MEDIA_KEY_LISTENER, Event Logcat Entry - resolutionREAD_LOGS, Volume Long Press Event - resolutionSET_VOLUME_KEY_LONG_PRESS_LISTENERAnd to check running application services Application context requires permissionDUMP.
- Action ADB Wifi allows you to execute commands in a shell session Android Debug Bridge (adb). The word "Wifi" to the name of the action only added to give a magical brightness to this trivial hack. Action ADB Wifi is completely analogous to Run Shell action, the only difference is that the shell itself is started within adb-session, not within Tasker. But because adb-session transactions carried out on behalf of the usershell, The number of operations allowed higher than the influence of Run Shell. Of course, talk about the complete replacement of root-session and action Run Shell with the option Use Root is not necessary. To effect ADB Wifi to work, will have toto sweat.

4. I cannot find half of the functions voiced in this topic in my version of Tasker, many functions are highlighted in red (unavailable), what am I doing wrong?
- Tasker manipulates a large set of contexts and actions to somehow streamline and distribute them, the interface uses a hierarchical structure, for example, the App category, the Go Home action. The same hierarchical structure is used for state and event contexts. Fortunately, it is not necessary to remember the categories for actions and contexts, the interface provides the Filter field, which greatly facilitates the search, seeTasker (Post by sergr59 # 40051612). In addition, a long tap is used throughout the interface (both on the elements and on the tabs), as well as dragging and holding. The interface is devoted to the sectionMain Screenof.books. In tasker<5.6 the default mode was set for beginners (Beginner mode), in which some features were not available (interface elements), the mode could be disabled in the Tasker settings. (In versions 5.6+, this mode has been removed.)
- When discussing actions and contexts in a topic, the English interface of Tasker is usually used (see. Note to clause 3 of the rules of the topic). Perhaps, if you switch the interface language in the Tusker settings, all of the missing functions will suddenly appear.
- Most of the actions highlighted in red can be replaced by plug-ins, but, as a rule, root will be required. For example, for a long time, the GPS action was unavailable in Tasker; however, it could be replaced with GPS actions. Enabled / GPS Disabled plug-inSecure settings. (Now there is a Location Mode action in Tasker, which allows you to indirectly control the GPS receiver.) You need to understand that after installing the plug-in, the action will not cease to be red, however, in the plug-in section, an action with the same functionality will appear.
- If you do not have root, you can sometimes solve the problem by issuing a special permit Tasker. Details are set out inFAQ 3.
- In addition, especially for those who like to delve into the guts of the system, all sorts of recipes are discussed in the subject, allowing you to achieve the desired without installing plug-ins, through a direct appeal to the functions of Android. (Look in the "Little sports tricks" section,MAAif you are interested in similar recipes. For example,MAX 10- analog GPS action for Android 4.0+ and Location Mode for Android 5.0+,MAX 12- Replacing the action of Mobile Data 2G / 3G. And the replacement action Mobile Data -MAX 4andTasker (Post Primorsky78 # 37418838.)
Please do not ask in the thread when this or that action is returned to Tasker. He will never be returned. Use plugins.

5. I am asked to lay out the Run Log and / or logcat, what is it and how to get it?
See little sports tricks,Debugging Secrets.

6. Is it possible with Tasker to create a separate application, apk?
Yes, it is possible. Plugin requiredTasker App Factory. Instructions are in the section.App Creationof.books.

7. I have a mega idea, but I’m not going to study Tasker, but I’m ready to pay for its incarnation + $ 100,500 $, who should I contact?
It is better to refer to the topic.Custom programs. Tasker topic price list ishereat the end of the post, paragraph 3.

8. What makes Tasker different from other similar programs?
Usually, tasks in Tasker are solved much easier than in other programs. This is achieved through two concepts unique to Tusker: state and action-tuning. Without these concepts, most elementary problems either have no solution at all, or the solution turns out to be extremely difficult.
For example, consider the simplest task "Turn on silent mode at night (at a meeting)". Most planners offer the following solution:
event: night fell (meeting) ->enable silent mode
event: morning came (meeting ended) ->turn off silent mode
Stop! And why, in fact, "turn off"? And if you had to turn on silent mode before and you need to leave the device in this mode, eh? It is clear that you need to restore the previous value of the mode. Unfortunately, the vast majority of other planners are not able to do this. Tasker can. Here is the profile on Tasker:
condition: Night (meeting)
task: turn on silent mode
Everything. It seems that the profile is completely wrong? Where is the mode off? He is not. Tasker himself will restore the mode: if at nightfall (meeting) the mode was silent, Tasker would leave it silent, if the sound was turned on, Tasker would turn off the silent mode.
Those interested can try to make a similar profile in another program. In principle, the profile of this level can still be implemented on anything, but you have to sweat.
An example of a profile that can be implemented outside Tasker is almost impossible - the secondexamplein the message.
Details on the states, superposition of states and action-settings can be found inThe course of the young fighter.
In addition, Tasker allows you to implement almost any idea, because it allows you to create your own user interface (scenes), allows you to communicate with Android directly and in its own language (Java Function action). True, almost always for the implementation of ideas is also required an understanding of the Android device.

9. With the help of Tasker, I managed to solve a problem that could save our Galaxy from destruction, how can I share the solution?
At present, the connection with the intergalactic congress has been lost, but we are ready to share your decision with humanity! For this you need:
- put your solution under the spoiler in Tasker’s Description format (see FAQ,question 10).
- answer your questions on the profile, fix the errors found
- put the final decision under the spoiler in Tusker Description format.
You can also put an additional copy of the decision and in xml format and / or pictures if you want. Also, in addition allowed to spread links to TaskerNet. In other words, the format - Description iscompulsory , other formats, including xml format, links to TaskerNet, pictures - desirable.

10. What is Tasker's Description format? What should I do to get my projects, profiles, tasks, scenes in this format? What is the code that is found in almost every post on this topic?
Tasker's Description format is a text with a description of the program on the Tasker. It looks like this:
Task in Tasker's Description format
Battery Line Width (68)
A1: Test Element [Scene Name: Battery Bar Element: Background Test: Element Size Result In:% size]
A2: Variable Split [Name:% size Splitter: x Delete Base: On]
A3: Variable Set [Name:% size To:% size1 / 100 *% BATT Do Maths: On Append: Off]
A4: Element Position: Scene Name: Battery Bar Element: Background Orientation: All X: 0 Y: 0 Animation Time (MS): 100]
A5: Element Position: Scene Name: Battery Bar Element: Line Orientation: All X: 0 Y: 0 Animation Time (MS): 100]
A6: Element Size [Scene Name: Battery Bar Element: Background Orientation: All Width:% size1 Height: 3 Animation Time (MS): 100]
A7: Element Size [Scene Name: Battery Bar Element: Line Orientation: All Width:% Size: 2: Animation Time (MS): 100]
A8: Perform Task [Name: Battery Line Color Stop: Off Priority: 5 Parameter 1 (% par1): Parameter 2 (% par2): Return Value Variable:]
How to get your work in this format, the words explainshere, and clearly -here.
Detailed explanation in picturesTasker (Post by sergr59 # 47858893).
The menu item Data / Description / Write File will create a copy of all your current work (profiles, tasks, scenes) in the Description format in the Tasker / datadescr.txt file on the sd card. For Tasker versions<4.x A file in the Description format is created automatically during the backup and is called userbackup.xml.txt.
It is impossible to import the Description format into Tasker, it can only be created by hand by typing a profile according to the description. The xml format is intended for full import.
If you want to ask a question or share your ideas, then along with the Description format we recommend also indicating the Android version and the presence (absence) of root-rights.

11. Is it true that there are telepaths in this topic who can give a clear answer to an incompletely formulated question?
Not!Unfortunately, our two telepaths disappeared without a trace, and the third went on vacation, but hasn’t returned until now (we still hope that he hasn’t gone and will definitely notify everyone when he returns)
All our telepaths were found and discoveredyour topic! All questions are asking there!

12. Looking at the statistics of memory usage, I saw that Tasker occupied 100/50/20 MB of RAM. I think that is too much. Is it possible to somehow curb Tusker's appetites?
- (short answer) You can. Exit the profile editing window.
- (detailed answer) Tasker consists of two unequal parts:
- The Tasker application itself, which implements the functions of editing profiles and their debugging, contains a settings menu and on-line help, etc .;
- a service that monitors contexts and implements the queue of tasks and actions.
The first part really requires a significant amount of RAM to work. However, as soon as you finish editing your profiles and exit the application, only the service will remain from Tasker, which usually does not require a lot of memory. The exact figure depends on the contexts and actions you use, but rarely exceeds a couple of megabytes. The maximum allegedly observed volume is 10 MB.
In addition, you need to be aware that the figures drawn by Android for the first part of Tasker, show the average temperature in the hospital, the pressure at the North Pole, but not the actual amount of RAM occupied. To understand where these figures come from, I recommend carefully reading two notes by Dianne Hackborn, an Android developer well-known in narrow circles (And what is the last name, eh? No nickname is needed): answer to the questionHow to discover memory usage of my application in AndroidandProcess Stats: Understanding How Your Uses RAM
Since Tasker is only an interlayer for Android functions, it shares memory with Android (due to the PSS metric used in Android for calculating the amount of RAM), and since Tasker is an interlayer for many functions, it shares memory with almost all Android. Hence the big numbers for the first part of Tusker: Android simply attributed half the amount of memory to Tusker.
At that moment, when only service remains from Tasker (and this is most of the time), only the necessary Android function profiles and tasks are used - the amount of memory used by Tasker is supposedly reduced. But we understand that in reality nothing has disappeared, it’s just that Android stopped attributing to Tusker its memory.
From all this we can draw the following conclusion: the PSS metric in the case of Tasker is not quite correct. Yes it is. However, an ideal metric does not exist in principle, and in the case of an overwhelming number of applications, using the PSS metric is a reasonable enough solution.

13. Looking at the statistics of power consumption, I was surprised to find that Tasker is constantly busy with something, he uses 90% / 50% / 10% of CPU time / battery. I think that is too much. Is it possible to somehow curb Tusker's appetites?
You can, think about what exactly your profiles do.
It should be clearly understood, Tasker itself does not occupy the processor, does not discharge the battery. This is all done by user-written profiles. The official manual has special sections.Power usageandLocation Without Tears(how successfully translated in due timev-oz, "Positioning without hemorrhoids"), devoted to methods to reduce energy consumption. If you read them carefully, it will become clear that, for example, the Orientation or Proximity or Location contexts with GPS should not be used alone in profiles. If to you, of course, your battery is expensive. You must additionally specify contexts such as Time, Call, Variable Value, etc.
Sometimes users, after active experiments with Tasker and long debugging of tasks, forget to stop manually started tasks. As a result, the task is quietly spinning in a loop, and in the% TRUN variable it is not (since such tasks are often lazy to give names). And you can detect it only by turning on the debug log in Tasker.
From here council: always stop queue of performance of tasks after experiments.

+ To work correctly context Cell Near and variable% CELLID on Android 8.0+.
Comment: Tasker should also have the right of access to the location the and androids 10+ this access must be provided constantly.
- If the profiles use plugins, all recommended above, you need to apply to the plugins too.

16. Due to Tasker on line states (and the lock screen) displayed alarm icon. Why is it necessary? Can I remove it?
Time required by the context and action Wait (see. FAQ 15) to work correctly. The appearance of an alarm icon is determined by the option Use Reliable Alarms (which, since Tasker 5.7, also has Always default). Disable icons in the status bar can effect Status Bar Icons. It is not recommended to change the value of the option Use Reliable Alarms, even if it seems to you that you do not need it. Believe me, Tasker knows better than you, you need it or not.

MAA - little sports tricks

1. Debugging Secrets .

2. Interception and emulation of hardware keys, user interface elements:
To emulate hardware keys and user interface elements, Tasker provides for Button, Dpad, Type, Assistance Request, Button Widget Clicked, Button: Camera, Button: Long Search, and other contexts. Their functionality is limited, much more advanced functions are available in pluginsAutoinputandAutoNotification. With the help of these plugins, it is possible to emulate almost any action of the user interface and intercept almost any of its events. However, there are cases when plugins are powerless, and in many simple situations plugins are redundant. In this little sports trick, alternative plug-in recipes are outlined.

5. Child topic from coolkaas Shell scripts for Android , which grew out of the Ministry of Agriculture 2. In the topic of programming on the shell (the action of the Run Shell Tasker). Short guide to the teams: Official BusyBox Guide ( description ), here is one of examples application.

6. Delayed launch
Sometimes you want to start a task not at the time of context activation, but a little later. To do this, use the delayed start method: the first action of the task is to set the Wait action, followed by the Stop If action, checking that the task start condition is still being met. This is usually a profile activity check, but there are other options.
profile "Profile Name"
context ...
Wait time
Stop If start condition
Of course, the delayed start method can be used for output tasks.
Examples of using the method:Tasker (Post by kefirux # 23641303)andTasker (Post by kefirux # 23646121)andTasker (Post by kefirux # 23660085). In addition, profiles using this method are dedicated tosimple mri 10.
Stop action with profile activity check done
Stop If% PACTIVE ~ *, Profile Name, *

Note the commas, a common beginner’s mistake is to forget about them when checking the% PACTIVE variable.

7. Combining Contexts for OR
There are three main methods. In the first and simplest, the property of independence of tasks from contexts is used — the task can be tied to several contexts simultaneously (this Tasker property is described in detail in "On the course of a young fighter" )
profile "Profile1"
context state context A
task "Task"

profile "Profile2"
context state context B
task "Task"

Disadvantages of this method:
- the task will be launched when each profile is activated;
- the output task, if needed, will also be launched when each profile is deactivated.
In general, this, of course, is not a union of contexts at all OR, or a very special case of such a union. But it works great in the simplest situations without abstruse bells and whistles.
The second method is based on the use of the Profile Active state (the profile is active). In the Name parameter (the name of the profile being checked by the context) there are comparisons based on the Tasker pattern (Pattern Matching). Using a simple matching pattern, we get:
profile "This is Profile1"
context state context A

profile "This is Profile2"
context state context B

profile "Profile1 or Profile2"
context state Profile Active [Name: This is Profile1 / This Profile2]
enter task "task"
exit task "output task"
In fact, if you correctly name the profiles, you can use the following template:
profile "Profile1 or Profile2"
context state Profile Active [Name: This is Profile *]
enter task "task"
exit task "output task"
that is, the context now checks whether any profile that starts with the word “This Profile” is active; both Profiles This Profile1 and This Profile2 will fall into such a template. Of course, you should not have any other profiles with the "This Profile" prefix.
You can also use the% PACTIVE system variable check:
profile "Profile1 or Profile2"
context state Variable Value% PACTIVE ~ *, This is Profile1, * / *, This is Profile2, *
enter task "task"
exit task "output task"
or even like this:
profile "Profile1 or Profile2"
context state Variable Value% PACTIVE ~ *, This is a Profile *, *
enter task "task"
exit task "output task"
This method most closely unites the context of OR. Note that the output of the task starts when both profiles are disabled, which is what we needed. (Indeed, the output task should run when the deactivation of context, ie, when the true negation of the activation conditions:. NOT (OR Profile1 Profile2) Using the known formula of Boolean algebra
NOT (Profile1 or Profile2)<=>(NOT Profile1) AND (NOT Profile2)

We get the condition profile deactivation "Profile1 or Profile2" on the right side of the formula.)
And by applying the negation to this formula, we get the idea underlying the third method
Profile1 OR Profile2<=>NOT (NOT (Profile1 or Profile2))<=>NOT ((NOT PROFILE1) AND (NOT PROFILE2))

In the right-hand side, we see the standard union of profiles according to I. To get those “NOT” inside the parentheses, you need to set a negation for the contexts in the profile, most Tasker contexts have the Invert flag for this. To get "NOT" before parenthesis, you need to make the task output for the profile.
profile "Profile1 or Profile2"
context state Not context A
context state Not context B
exit task "Task"
enter task "output task"

Disadvantages of this method:
- the method is difficult to enter it, you have to work hard
- the settings that are changed by the settings actions in the Task task are not saved, since the task is an output
- for the same reason, the settings that are changed by the action-settings in the task "Output task" are restored in the task "Task"

To manage the location settings in Tusker, there is a Location Mode action, however, it assumes that the location settings are standard, for some firmware this is not true. In addition, this action is available only for Android 5.0+. This little sports trick reveals the internal mechanics of the system location settings.

11. Parsing (parsing) text data, for example, HTML pages.
- The main tool for parsing text data is the action Variable Search Replace. As the name suggests, it allows you to search for a given pattern in a string, as well as replace or remove parts of a string. The action relies heavily on the notion of a regular expression (regular expression, regexp):section of. leadership, section from the Android API Reference, online testerregular expressions. Examples of use are simple MRI 27, complex MRI 11 and 16.
- Since parsing html-pages with regular expressions iscthulhu pathIt is recommended to use the parsing tools available in JavaScript and Android (via JS and JF Tasker).

13. Work with databases on the example of SMS database.
General comment. With the database, rather, with content providers (content providers) operate through the built-in Android utility content (available for Android 4.1+). Thus it is necessary to know the address (authority) of the supplier and the structure of its database. If the utility content in your Androide not, or if it is necessary to pre understand the database structure, use the sqlite-shell. Note, however, that the work with the database to record, passing the supplier may lead to its destruction. Everywhere below, unless otherwise stated, refers to the action Run Shell Tasker. Previously, of course, you need to fine-tune the work with the database on the command line. Basically, to work with databases and content providers in Tasker has a SQL Query action, so only use it without knowing the base (supplier) structure, is almost impossible.

- using sqlite-shell, mark all SMS readTasker (Post by gavrila # 43833031)
- deletion via sqlite-shell SMS from a certain numberTasker (Post Havl # 18737162)
- scripts on SL4A python (action of SL4A Script Tasker's Run): one marks all SMS as read, the other deletes sent to a certain SMS numberTasker (Post Havl # 18852990)
Finally, actions for working with the SMS database exist in the Tasker Utils plugin (removed from Google Play, there is no topic in it), an example of a profile that removes specific SMS content from a specific numberTasker (Post brisker # 42600445)
Past versions
The previous versions of the program collected here are of interest only to archaeological historians who are exploring the artifacts of the Digital Age. No need to download these versions, hoping that they will work. The current official stable versions obviously work better. And if it seems to you that you have found a mistake in them, it is better to discuss it in the topic or write to the author at the forum.

Key version of Tasker at the office. the sitehttps://tasker.joaoapps.com/releases/

If you want to help develop the Tasker theme, hereTasker (Post by username11 # 48781819)compiled a list of tasks for filling the cap and structuring the topic.
p.s. Thanks to everyone who took / is / will take (and will take!) participation in the creation of the cap.

Themelooking for a curator. Wishing to please pay attention torequirements for supervisors in the section.

I tried to jump from Locale.

Everything is pretty powerful (at the office something is chewed up in detail), much is configured, for example, at motor-milestone the volume of notifications and SMS signal is always the same.
And I had to make the notification quiet, and the SMS - loudly. It was possible with the help of Tasker.

However, there are downsides (maybe I just haven't figured it out yet):
1. It does not work with built-in volpeypers (only pictures from the file system, I haven’t found where the default volpeyper on mileston lie).Locale, on the contrary, works only with embedded :)
2. Returning to the previous settings does not work when the profile expires, although it is declared as a feature. You have to use ExitTask
Task:Make the notification quiet, and SMS - loud.
I put the sound of the notification quiet.
I make a rule so that when an SMS arrives, the notification sound is made loud.
When the SMS arrived, the sound really became louder, but it remained so, now the notifications are loud: (And I expected it to return to the previous level ...

2.1 In continuation of paragraph 2 - not all profiles can be screwed ExitTask: (I managed only to one, the first in a row.

Long press on action ->Add Exit Task
Added without problems.
And there are still a lot of implicit actions - for example, yesterday I figured out how to make a button on the screen, by clicking on which a dialog pops up - I made a one-touch switch on loud / vibration / airplane + all associated settings. :)

Now I deal with repetitions - I try to make it so that when a call / sms is missed, once in N minutes I play a melody and vibrate. :)

I have not tried. Even if not, then Locale plugin support is declared, and there definitely is such a plugin.

Experience has shown that if there is at least one Event in the context (such as PhoneIdle or Received SMS), then ExitTask is impossible.
In other cases, it seems to work.

Rep: (39)
brake @ 10.6.10, 12:13*
Event (such as PhoneIdle or Received SMS), then ExitTask is not possible.

Everything is a bit wrong. :)
Immediately you need to enable the separation by event type: Button<menu> ->Show Context Selector.
After that, everything falls into place. In the rightmost tab, where all the tricky events - the way out of them is not caught. In the first and second - Exit Task is present, in the rest - I do not know, I do not need. ;)

Rep: (32)
In general, I'm about the same. I just have profiles, where there are 2 contexts, for example:
Event: PhoneCall
Time: 00:00 - 06:00

And inside the profile, a set of tasks common to both contexts. In this case, there is no ExitTask (and so its hunting :))

But, apparently, is solved by a parallel profile and priorities - it is necessary to experiment.

Oh, here from this place in more detail. :)
Can a sequence of buttons to create an action triggered by two events at once (logical "AND")? I didn’t understand how to do it - I did it as a programmer - I started a variable-flag. :)

Nomad14 @ 10.6.10, 16:14*

Tap on the Context (not on the task, as you wrote earlier, that is, to the left of the task)
In the menu that appears, select Context->Add - everything, after a difficult choice, we have added a second context to the profile.

For clarity in terminology:
Profile - everything that is drawn in a separate rectangle (a set of contexts and tasks)
Context - conditionalthe condition under which the task is executed (the left rectangle in profile )
Task / Task - right rectangle in profile . A series of actions that are performed in context to which is attached task . Task m. tied to more than one context .

So I realized that the only hard button on which to put something is the camera. What to do if there is no separate button for the camera?

Rep: (39)
dptundra @ 11.6.10, 9:17*
What to do if there is no separate button for the camera?

The question is rhetorical. :) Use other events: for example, using plugins.
For example, Locale Shake Plug-In - you can do something by shaking the phone;
Screebl - by the position of the phone in space (along three axes): A telephone in the “near ear” position is one action, “face down” is another, etc.

But how does the program part of the rules check (if the conditions are in terms of time and location)? Is the battery strong?

Rep: (32)
With "equal" settings, the battery eats no more than Locale. But it feels like. Thin measurements did not do.

Rep: (39)
brake @ 11.6.10, 12:43*
Thin measurements did not do.

The author writes that he has done a great job in energy saving. In particular, events are checked in order of increasing energy intensity - this makes it possible not to run energy-intensive checks.

So I think it should be definitely no worse than Locale. Rather better. :)

Does anyone have any ideas about how you can change the wallpaper when you install a quiet mode (well, back, when you cancel the silence)?

I did not find any event or event similar to what you need: (

You can, of course, stir up the profile for this case and turn it on with the widget, but the hunt is from the opposite (IMHO is more beautiful to use any widget for silence).

PS: at the office forum announced (but not posted)a new version

Personally, I made a widget on my screen with a menu of three points: loud, vibro and quiet. There you can also shove a change of wallpaper. :)
Imho very comfortable. And how do you set the mode?

Rep: (32)
Nomad14 @ 15.6.10, 1:02*
And how do you set the mode?

I use the SwitchPro widget, and somehow wanted to track down the very moment the sound is turned off.

Rep: (9)
Hello! Who figured out the program and there is a desire to help pliz tell me ...
It is necessary (for now I imagine it because I do not know the possibilities of the program)
1. while I'm at home (determine either by BS or by the presence of a signal from my access point) turn on the waffle every half hour for 10 minutes, update the necessary widgets (weather, account balances, RCC news), check mail
At home I can be on workdays say from 19-00 to 7-00
And at night from 24-00 to 5 am this item is not to do
2. ANY sound always off from 21-30 to 6 am leave only the vibro (do not wake the baby)
from 6 am to 7 am, the sound should be made about 20% approximately + vibro
and the sound of the alarm do in the morning at 6:10 at 30%

Something like this...
I understand that it is messy, but I still haven’t understood how to use it and what it can do.
