    Default Pass variable to HttpURLConnection

    Hello everyone

    I'm trying to pass the matchday to the URL for the Http connection. I know I can't get a value from the EditText in the doInBackground method so I thought to get the value in the onPreExecute method. Of I then add the variable to the URL, the program doesn't recognise the String. I saw on StackOverflow you need to add the parameters in the execute method but I don't really have got that part of the explanation.

    Does anyone have an idea how to add the matchday to the URL, entered in the EditText matchdayText?

    Thanks in advance!
