Hello Developers!! Today we will discuss the different timers API used in Javascript

  • setTimeout
  • setInterval

setTimeout

It delays an operation for a certain amount of time which is passed as a parameter.

It takes two parameters:

  • a function
  • delay time in millisecond
setTimeout(()=>{
    console.log("setTimeout in action");
}, 2000)

In the above code snippet, it will print to the console after 2000 ms.

Now look at another example of setTimeout:-

let myFunc = (num1, num2) => {
    console.log(num1, "---", num2);
}

setTimeout(myFunc, 2000, 2, 3);

If you pass more than 2 parameters in the setTimeout then this will eventually become the parameters of the myFunc.

setInterval

It puts a delayed operation in a loop

setInterval(()=>{
    console.count("setInterval in action")
},2000);
