Android | JAVA | Cannot Access Variable returned by a method

  android, java, methods

I have a system of arduino which sends back "1" when browsing "10.0.0.1/connection". I am storing that "1" into a variable called ‘value’ and accessing it in another method. While accessing value in another method it gives null pointer exception.

Description :

This is the method which loads url and store’s whatever source code i receive into a variable.

public String getConnection()
    {
        String []value = new String[1];
        String con = "http://10.0.0.1/connection";
        Ion.with(getApplicationContext()).load(con).asString().setCallback(new FutureCallback<String>() {

            @Override
            public void onCompleted(Exception e, String result) {
                int i = Integer.parseInt(result);
                conFlag = i;
                tv.setText(result);
                tv.setVisibility(View.VISIBLE);
                if(i == 1){
                    value[0] = result;
                Log.d("vol ",value[0]);
              }
            }
        });
    return value[0];
    }

Here as you can see I printed log which will print value[0] if i==1. And I set conFlag = i.

Here I am getting the value which is returned by getConnection()

@Override
    public void onRequestPermissionsResult(int requestCode, @NonNull String[] permissions, @NonNull int[] grantResults)
    {
        Log.d("onRequestPermissionsResult() ->", " called");
        super.onRequestPermissionsResult(requestCode, permissions, grantResults);
        if (requestCode == 1) {
            Log.d("onRequestPermissionsResult() ->", " requestCode = 1");
            if (grantResults.length >0 && grantResults[0] == PackageManager.PERMISSION_GRANTED) {
                //do your thing
                info = wifiManager.getConnectionInfo();
                if (info.getSSID().trim().equals(ssid)){
                    String conct = getConnection();
                    Log.d("vol conct", conct);
                    if (conFlag == 1){
                        startActivity(new Intent(SplashScreen.this,MainActivity.class));
                    }
                }
                else {
                    Log.d("Value","Not found");
          
                }
                Log.d("onRequestPermissionsResult() ->", " Permissions Granted");

            }
        }

    }

Here I am getting exception of nullPointer on "Log.d("vol conct", conct);".

If I don’t call the method getConnection() and do not use it’s returned value then it is printing Log of value[0] as 1. Which means whatever string i received is parsed as int and compared with int 1. I am not able to use that i or conFlag in onRequestPermissionsResult() method.
