Create a HUD or Overlay Screen?


I'm fairly new to Keyboard Maestro and loving it already. The script I created basically loops X amount times and makes a data entry.

Sometimes I want to know which iteration it is in or how many data entries have been made.

Is it possible to create a HUD or an overlay screen that will update the counters/variables and show them on screen but not interfere with the macros?

For example, something like below:


I found this forum post which gives the answer that it is possible. And it provides the start of the solution.

Hope this help,


Hi Reheer,

Thank you so much for the link. It's exactly what I was looking for.

Here's my code. The tricky part was to make sure the Custom Floating HTML Prompt is set to Asynchronously. Otherwise, the script waits for the window to close.
