SetInterval vs setTimeout

4 réponses de la communauté

var intervalID = setInterval(alert, 1000); // Will alert every second.
// clearInterval(intervalID); // Will clear the timer.

setTimeout(alert, 1000); // Will alert once, after a second.
setInterval(function(){ 
	console.log("Oooo Yeaaa!");
}, 2000);//run this thang every 2 seconds
var intervalID = setInterval(alert, 1000); // Will alert every second.
// clearInterval(intervalID); // Will clear the timer.

setTimeout(alert, 1000); // Will alert once, after a second.
setTimeout allows us to run a function once after the interval of time.
setInterval allows us to run a function repeatedly, starting after the interval of time, then repeating continuously at that interval.
var intervalID = scope.setInterval(func, [delay, arg1, arg2, ...]);
var intervalID = scope.setInterval(function[, delay]);
var intervalID = scope.setInterval(code, [delay]);
