    Has anyone been able to figure how to use Tasker with the Droid Pro to set a hardware key as the actual shutter button for taking pictures? I was thinking maybe there is a way to set it up so that when the camera app is active, the side button or the space bar can be used to activate the shutter and actually take the picture rather than having to press the onscreen shutter "button."

    Thanks

    Help!!

    This happens for me with GO Launcher when I reboot. If you just wait, it fixes itself.
    They never did come back. I finally deleted and reinstalled Tasker, then deleted and reinstalled my widgets. Not sure what happened, but the delete and reinstall worked.

    $5 car dock modification

    After reading all the posts on this thread, I got jealous that my car dock didn't have a magnet to activate my phone. I have a generic one to hold my BlackBerry from before my Droid. So...I decided to modify the one I have (and yes, I'm too cheap to go get a new one). So here's what I did.

    I went to a craft store and found a 3 pack of flat, strong (200 gauss) magnets. Then I taped it to my phone and marked where on my dock it needed to go. Next i cut out the neoprene from that spot and glued on the magnet. Since is stuck out from the neoprene, I went back to the craft store and got a sheet of 6mm neoprene, cut it to size and thinned out the space above the magnet. Finally, I used a 'shoe goo' type glue and glued on a new piece of neoprene. 12 hours later, I removed the clamp and I'm in business!
    Total spent? About $5.00. And I still have 2 magnets and a big piece of neoprene left over for a future project.

    Now I'm no longer jealous and have written a task for when I'm docked in my car. Auto GPS, Bluetooth and SpeedView on.

    Now if I could just get Tasker to fix my lunch....

    You sir, are a super geek among geeks and I salute you. In truth, this simple caveman does not understand your ways. I too have a generic car dock for my phone and the real deal for the Htc evo will not accommodate a case so screw that. I currently settle for a menu that pops up whenever charging to select my car profile, but how do magnets trigger the car dock status? Is that specific to your phone?

    I'm not sure about other models. My Droid X is triggered by the polarity of the magnet. One way triggers home dock and the other triggers car dock. I used a refrigerator magnet to test it. Just slide the magnet around on the back. It will trigger dock mode when you slide across the right area. Mine was about 1/3 from the bottom in the middle.

    Hi guys & gals!
    I'm new around these parts & had a question about Tasker.

    I have D2 & want to send an auto text to fiance when I am close to home.

    Also, any way to auto respond that I'm driving when phone is car docked to WhatApp contacts? I have it setup for sms.

    Thanks

    The Sync control looks interesting.
    I had similar thoughts about the misaligned timing of all autosync activities draining my battery.

    I noticed the use of "SAY" actions. Haven't used them myself.
    I have a question concerning that matter:
    If i set my phone to [silent mode], will the [SAY] command override it?
    I hate when this happens (in the church, movies, meeting) when I expect my phone to be completely silent.

    Hi Peter, I've answered you questions in detail over at XDA. With regard to the speech, it is only for testing purposes to ensure all of the variables are setting correctly and you understand their functions - Once you are happy that all is working as it should be, the speech actions can be deleted, so overriding the silent state will not have to be considered.

    I have been messing with Tasker for a while now and have a question on one of my profiles.

    I have a Car Dock profile that is activated when ever I plug my phone into the car power source and it launches Vlingo and turns on GPS and BT.

    Now the problem I am having is that when I plug my phone into the home dock it launches it as well.

    Do you have a way to disable or stop it from launching when I am home? Right now I have it just set up to only be active between 6:00 and 22:00 but there are times that I am out and about and would like for it to still launch.

    Thanks,
    Scott
