-====== Execute JavaScript in Custom HTML Prompt Action ======+
  
- 
-The Execute JavaScript in Custom Prompt action (version 7.1+) allows you to execute a specified JavaScript in any active Keyboard Maestro [[action:​Custom_HTML_Prompt|Custom HTML Prompt]]. 
- 
-The **Execute JavaScript in Custom Prompt** action is the functional equivalent for the Custom HTML Prompt to these actions: 
- 
-* [Execute JavaScript in Safari](https://​wiki.keyboardmaestro.com/​action/​Execute_a_JavaScript_in_Google_Chrome) 
-* [Execute JavaScript in Chrome](https://​wiki.keyboardmaestro.com/​action/​Execute_a_JavaScript_in_Google_Chrome) 
- 
-===== Example ===== 
- 
-{{:​action:​km-7.2-execute-script-in-html-prompt-example.png?​nolink|}} 
- 
-Note the purpose of this example is to close an existing HTML Prompt window, and it calls a custom JavaScript function already in the Custom HTML Prompt. ​ The Action option of "​asynchronously"​ is chosen to avoid timeout of the Action. ​ Otherwise, the Action will wait for a response from the HTML Prompt, which will never come. 
- 
-===== Source of Script ===== 
- 
- 
-The JavaScript may be from any of the following: 
- 
-* From a JavaScript file  
-* From the text script in the Action 
-* Using any custom functions in the HTML Prompt. 
- 
-===== Target of Script ===== 
- 
-The JavaScript is executed in a specific [[action:​Custom_HTML_Prompt]] action with a matching [[action:​Custom_HTML_Prompt#​HTML_Window_Design|data-kmwindowid]],​ or all Custom HTML Prompts if no windowid is specified. ​ 
- 
- 
- 
- 
-===== Results of Action ===== 
- 
-This Action can (optionally) return the results of the JavaScript: 
- 
-  * ignore results 
-  * display results in a window 
-  * display results briefly 
-  * display results large 
-  * type results 
-  * paste results 
-  * save results to variable 
-  * save results to clipboard 
-    * Either the system clipboard or a named clipboard 
-  * asynchronously 
-    * Results are **not** saved 
-    * The macro immediately continues to the next action, which runs in parallel with the current action 
- 
-If the results are to be saved to a variable or a clipboard then further text areas appear in the action allowing you to specify the variable or specific clipboard. 
- 
-===== Access to Keyboard Maestro Variables ===== 
- 
-The JavaScript can access variables by using the window.KeyboardMaestro functions described in the [Custom HTML Prompt](https://​wiki.keyboardmaestro.com/​action/​Custom_HTML_Prompt) action.
