Scene Element: Web

Scene Element: Web icon_tasker.png


A Web element is like a browser window.

Parameters: Mode / Source

These parameters determine how the content for the WebView is to be acquired.

  • URI: the Source parameter refers to a URI (e.g. http:) from which the WebView should retrieve content.
  • File: the //Source parameter contains a local file path from which the WebView should retrieve content.
  • Direct: the Source parameter directly specifies the HTML and/or JavaScript content to load

Parameter: Allow Phone Access

If checked, the content in the WebView is allowed access to local device data stores and can run JavaScript, including Tasker's JavaScript Interface functions.

This is a very powerful feature, since it allows a WebView to present a complex and highly functional interface, but should only be enabled if you entirely trust the source of the specified content.

Parameter: Self Handle Links

If checked, links will be handled by the WebView itself, otherwise they will be passed to the system for handling e.g. by the default web browser.
