SetPropertyForDuration ( String, TimeSpan, Object, Object )

Sets a property for a duration of time and then sets the property to a subequent value asynchronously. This action returns after setting the first value and the timer and subsequent property set run in the background. Subsequent sets of the same property will reset the timer if the subsequent value has not yet been set. This is an advanced feature, be sure to set the property name correctly.

Syntax

void SetPropertyForDuration( String propertyName, unknown duration, Object initialValue, Object finalValue )

Parameters

propertyName : The name of the property to set.
duration : The amount of time to wait after setting the initial value to set the subsequent value.
initialValue : The value to set the property to initially.
finalValue : The value to set the property to after the duration of time has passed.

SetPropertyForDuration ( String, Number, TimeSpan, Object, Object )

Sets a property for a duration of time and then sets the property to a subequent value asynchronously.

Subsequent sets of the same property will reset the timer if the subsequent value has not yet been set. This is an advanced feature, be sure to set the property name correctly.

Syntax

void SetPropertyForDuration( String propertyName, Number arrayIndex, unknown duration, Object initialValue, Object finalValue )

Parameters

propertyName : The name of the property to set.
arrayIndex : The property's array index to set.
duration : The amount of time to wait after setting the initial value to set the subsequent value.
initialValue : The value to set the property to initially.
finalValue : The value to set the property to after the duration of time has passed.
