HTTPRequest doesn't call anything when called with any text as url

I call a HTTPRequest node’s request method with the text “not really a valid url”, but the request_completed signal isn’t called. Basically there is no request to be completed so it makes sense, that it doesn’t say the request is completed, but since I run it from user input, I need it to say me if something failed, even if the request isn’t made in the first place.

Anyone any ideas?

You need to check for an error when calling request(). Something like:

var http_request =
var error = http_request.request("garbage")
if error != OK:
	# something went wrong
