    Default System.wait() or something of the sort

    Hello everyone, I'm wondering whether there is a function to pause a defined amount of time before continuing with the program.

    Default

    You may wish to look up the Thread section of the Java API, and in particular, the Thread.sleep(...) method.

    Default Easy man

    Java Code:
    Thread.sleep(<time in milliseconds you want to stop>);
    Simple as that though you might want to know about try/catch blocks as well

    Good Luck!:)
