Return Type



Example 1

For this example we will first create a file with the following javascript code and save it on the disk as hook.js.

AJS.$('#summary-val').get(0).childNodes[0].nodeValue = "Executing my javascript"; AJS.$('#descriptionmodule').hide();

Now we call the lfExecuteJS routine like in the code block below. For the jsFilePath parameter you can either give the relative path (as in the example above) or the absolute path. When this routine is called, the javascript code from hook.js is executed. This will set the summary value on the issue page and will hide the description.

lfExecuteJS("hook.js"); // jsFilePath = "hook.js"

Example 2

The file designated by the jsFilePath parameter must contain only JavaScript code. Note that this code will be inlined, so do not use single line comments!

var v = "a"; // let's show an alert alert(v);

The alert() will never be called because the script (above) will be evaluated to:
