    setTimeout() and setInterval() are 2 standard Javascript functions.
    Without going into too much detail, they are the entryway to Javascript's wildly useful multi-threaded operation.
    As of today, setInterval() generates an error: "not a function."
    This line of code
    let _tmr = setTimeout( log("inside Timeout?"),1000 );
    does set _tmr equal to some value. (i.e. it's not null).
    However, instead of waiting 1 second before printing to the log, setTimeout seems to ignore the millisecond time value completely and just prints to the log without delay.

    Has anyone experimented with either of these two functions (in BB3, of course) and gotten different results?
    (I will forward to support also and report back any answer I get).

    It's important to know whether proper support for these 2 functions is coming or not.
    If they aren't coming because they conflict with internal BB3 operation, then I'll write an alternative. If they are coming, I might wait.

    Update: I got a quick response from support (I must have closed the browser tab by accident).

    sweet.

    What was the response, will this be included in the API?
