Default JavaScript Timing Events

With Javascript, it is possible to execute some code NOT immediately after a function is called , but after a specified time interval. This is called timing events.

It's very easy to time events in JavaScript. The two key methods that are used are:

SetTimeout( ) - executes a code some time in the future

clearTimeout( ) - cancel' s thesetTimeout( )

Note: the seTimeout( ) and clearTimeout( ) are both methods of the HTML DOM Window object.


When the ****on is clicked in the example below, an alert box will be displayed after 5 seconds
