NAME ^

Tk_Sleep - delay execution for a given number of milliseconds

SYNOPSIS ^

#include <tk.h>

Tk_Sleep(ms)

ARGUMENTS ^

int ms (in)

Number of milliseconds to sleep.

DESCRIPTION ^

This procedure delays the calling process by the number of milliseconds given by the ms parameter, and returns after that time has elapsed. It is typically used for things like flashing a button, where the delay is short and the application needn't do anything while it waits. For longer delays where the application needs to respond to other events during the delay, the procedure Tk_CreateTimerHandler should be used instead of Tk_Sleep.

KEYWORDS ^

sleep, time, wait
