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

You may write comments in Markdown. This makes code easy to post, as you can write inline code like `<div>this</div>` or multiline blocks of code in triple backtick fences (```) with double new lines before and after.

Code of Conduct

Absolutely anyone is welcome to submit a comment here. But not all comments will be posted. Think of it like writing a letter to the editor. All submitted comments will be read, but not all published. Published comments will be on-topic, helpful, and further the discussion or debate.
