Delay displaying text

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I read from a MySQL database using PHP and I am curious how can I delay displaying the lines by lines of information with Javascript?

Output:

You age slowly

[wait 2 secs]

You age slowly some more

[wait 2 secs]

You age really slow now

[wait 2 secs]

So that it outputs the first line, waits 2 seconds, then outputs the 2nd line, waits 2 sec, etc.

I've seen this done, but not sure how they do it.

Thanks.

Try using setTimeout()... I guess you could hide divs you've already written, or just write out the page dynamically (i.e. set .innerHTML).
