answerOnNextPrompt (text) - Selenium IDE command

answerOnNextPrompt tells the IDE what to answer at the next prompt dialog. You find an example of such a dialog on this test page.

For simple confirmation dialogs (= OK/Cancel dialogs), chooseOkOnNextConfirmation was used in the old Selenium IDE. It is no longer needed in Kantu, as this behavior is now built-in (Kantu clicks OK automatically).

answerOnNextPrompt Example

The macro below first opens a prompt, and then Kantu IDE enters "Hello World" in it and closes it automatically.
