timer.stop

description

Stops the timer early. Nothing happens if the timer has already elapsed.

syntax

getTimer(ELEMENT_NAME).stop()

notes

  • When timers are stopped early, the script proceeds in the same way as if they had elapsed on their own: any callback command associated to the timer is executed and any wait command on the timer is resolved.

  • Will wait 3 seconds before proceeding, or will proceed if the space bar is pressed in the meantime.
