jQuery Question

wait() or sleep() function in jquery?

I want to add a class, wait 2 seconds and add another class.

.addClass("load").wait(2sec).addClass("done");


Is there any way?

Answer

setTimeout will execute some code after a delay of some period of time (measured in milliseconds). However, an important note: because of the nature of javascript, the rest of the code continues to run after the timer is setup:

$('#someid').addClass("load");

setTimeout(function(){
  $('#someid').addClass("done");
}, 2000);

// Any code here will execute immediately after the 'load' class is added to the element.
