Perform Function At Timed Intervals

Perform a function every one second:

function myFunction() {
   // do something
}

var int = setInterval(myFunction, 1000);

Cancel it:

clearInterval(int);

Pass variables when calling custom function:

setInterval(function(){ doMove(panelWidth, tooFar); }, delayLength);

Posting Code

We highly encourage you to post problematic HTML/CSS/JavaScript over on CodePen and include the link in your post. It's much easier to see, understand, and help with when you do that.

Markdown is supported, so you can write inline code like `<div>this</div>` or multiline blocks of code in in triple backtick fences like this:

```
<script>
  function example() {
    element.innerHTML = "<div>code</div>";
  }
</script>
```
