The constants ACtl.STOP_CHAIN and ACtl.STOP_FULL_SEQ are the API counterpart of the Continue chain if action.
A script can return one of these two constants in order to signal AutoControl's action system to stop the current action chain or the entire action sequence.

If a script returns ACtl.STOP_CHAIN, it has the same effect as this GUI action:

If a script returns ACtl.STOP_FULL_SEQ, it has the same effect as this GUI action:


Given the following action sequence:
and the Run script action containing this script:

	//If the current tab contains the term "Main Example" (case-insensitive)
	if( document.body.innerText.match( /\bMain Example\b/i ) )
		return ; //continue normally
	//Else, if the current tab contains the word "Example"
	if( document.body.innerText.match( /\bExample\b/i ) )
		return ACtl.STOP_CHAIN ; //Don't execute remaining actions in the chain
	//Else, don't execute remaining actions in all chains
	return ACtl.STOP_FULL_SEQ ;

If the current tab contains the term "Main example", then Pin tabs and Move tabs will both be executed.
Else, if the current tab contains the word "Example", only Move tabs will be executed.
Otherwise, nothing will be done.
