    Default Pauses (or delays rather....)

    Hey i was wondering if anyone knew how to make the code pause for a specified interval of time, at any place in the code that you place it.

    thank you in advance.

    Which IDE are you using?
    if you are using Netbeans then what you can do is click on the line number once and you will see a red square pop up and then you can click on run->debug
    it will run the program up until the red square and then you can click on play button to run the program line by line

    You have two choices:
    1 — use a Swing Timer with non-repeating delay, ie, one–time use. There's a page in the tutorial that discusses the use of Swing Timers: How to Use Swing Timers.
    2 — use a thread:
    Java Code:
    Thread thread = new Thread(new Runnable() {
        public void run() {
            try {
                Thread.sleep(3000);
            } catch(InterruptedException e) {
                System.out.println("interrupt");
            }
        }
    }).start();
    This will halt everything: gui response, gui updates, etc; the app will appear to freeze.
