delaying a message from happening

October 3, 2009 | 7:44 am

it’s late and i’ve been working on this patch for awhile so im sure its an easy fix- anyone have any tips for how to delay a message, like using delay 500, except for messages. it’s a list i want to iter through, and then delay each piece of the list from happening by a few ms.
thanks,
brian

Pipe works like delay but is for for numbers and lists.

Alternately, you can [prepend set] your message into a message box and at the same time trigger a [delay 500] to bang the same message box half a second later.

If the message is constant, you don’t even need the [prepend set] mojo, just keep a copy in the message box.
