JavaScript setTimeout Function Example

Aug 28, 2013

Here I will explain how to use JavaScript setTimeout function with example. JavaScript setTimeout() function is used to execute functions at regular intervals of time. Suppose if we want to execute one JavaScript function for every 10 seconds or for a specific time we can use JavaScript setTimeout function to achieve this functionalit. 


In previous articles I explained Start and Stop timer in JavaScript, Show user current location on Google map, Regular expression to validate file upload extension and many articles relating to jQuery, JavaScript. Now I will explain how to use JavaScript setTimeout() function with example. 
JavaScript setTimeout() function is same as jQuery setInterval() function . We can use setTimeout function in different ways like as shown below
Method 1:

setTimeout(yourfunction(), timeinterval);

function yourfunction() {
// your code here
Method 2

setTimeout(function(){// your code here
}, timeinterval);
For complete example check below code

<html xmlns="">
<title>JavaScript display current time on webpage</title>
<script type="text/javascript">
function ShowCurrentTime() {
var dt = new Date();
document.getElementById("lblTime").innerHTML = dt.toLocaleTimeString();
setTimeout("ShowCurrentTime()", 1000); // Here 1000(milliseconds) means one 1 Sec
<body onload="ShowCurrentTime()">
JavaScript Display current time second by second:
<label id="lblTime" style=" font-weight:bold"></label>
Live Demo
Check below time for live demo it will run for every one second
JavaScript Display current time second by second:
