Default txt - take pictures - mss them back?

Hi, I want to be able to msg my phone so it takes some pictures and mms them back to me

so far this is what I have seen on this and it starts to work

===
Create Variable %StolenFilename as Stolen
Create Variable %Shots as 1
Create a task
(Task) For %Shots items 10
(Variable) Variable Join %StolenFilename %Shots
(media) Photo - under filename put %StolenFilename
(Phone) Compose MMS (number is whoever you want to get pictures) Attachments %StolenFilename
(task) wait 1 second
(Task) end for

sends 10 mms pictures (change the number of items for more or less)
==

so it takes for some reason 1 picture but names it %StolenFilenamethen looks for it in my sd card location and give an error like

location not found: sd/dim/%StolenFilename

so i kind of get it, the reason I dont think its taking more than one pic is becuase its naming them %StolenFilenamenot different names?

can anyone figure this out, even it I could get one image sent back via mms would be a great start?

thanks

Did you type the error yourself? Because sd/dim doesn't exist. It should probably be sdcard/dcim... or is this a red herring?

Yeah sorry... I meant if the message was ad you posted, yeah would make sense it can't find it

So now that's sorted...

Go and check what I expect is /sdcard/dcim/tasker and look for these photos and see whats there.

Also go to the variables tab in tasker and look what %Shots looks like.. screen shot if possible please

yeah its just this I posted up there it was on a forum, but was an old post

====
Create Variable %StolenFilename as Stolen
Create Variable %Shots as 1
Create a task
(Task) For %Shots items 10
(Variable) Variable Join %StolenFilename %Shots
(media) Photo - under filename put %StolenFilename
(Phone) Compose MMS (number is whoever you want to get pictures) Attachments %StolenFilename
(task) wait 1 second
(Task) end for

sends 10 mms pictures (change the number of items for more or less)
===

I was hoping I could fix it if it was faulty, I dont mind doing it different if there is a better way or another tutorial somewhere?

thanks

That's what I was afraid of because they're not particularly precise...

Sorry. Not based on what you posted I am afraid. I would suggest finding a new guide.

Maybe if you can export me your profile, I can have a play with it.

Just long press the profile > export > export xml to sd, then zip it and attach here.

Can't guarantee a speedy resolution as time is not always free but at least I can have a play and see it in real time...

Good news? Fixed you filename / attachment issue.

http://db.tt/D2G5tPZ1

Bad news is... "compose mms" doesnt send an mms. You'd have to manually press send. Same with "compose sms". There is a "send sms" option that does automatically send but no mms equivalent.

You may have to consider amalgamating this with the profile I posted that emails pics of people putting incorrect pattern locks in

I found it thanks, I got that working I just am trying to tie them together, well the idea to me would be just to change the action at the start so instead of the attempts on the password I would add received txt with a word

so think I could do this unless I am thinking wrong lol will post back soon
