  • Last Updated : 02 Apr, 2020

The script.runInThisContext() method runs the compiled code present inside the vm.Script within the context of the current global object. Moreover, running code has no access to local scope, but it has access to the current global object.

// Defining script
let script = new vm.Script(code);
  
// Calling runInThisContext method
script.runInThisContext();

Output:

// Defining x and y
 var x = 40; var y = 17;
   
// Adding x and y
const z = x + y;
  
// Dwfining code
