Pause Execution of ASP

Hi,

         I need to pause the execution of an ASP for some time -say 2 sec (or for any duration)-
Is there any method otherthan giving a Dummy loop like

             for intJ=1 to 25000
            x=(x+9*10/2*13-133+1233/12332*1231)
            x=x-(9*10/2*13-133+1233)
      next

Thanks In advance to all

There isn't a Sleep/sleep function in ASP.
You can use a component (free)
WaitFor 1.0

Hongjun's right.....

see mattyk's code below  (http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Web_Languages/ASP/Q_11973538.html?query=delay+timeout&searchType=topic)

<%
dim startTimer,currentTimer
dim duration 'in seconds
duration=30

startTimer=timer
do while currentTimer<(starttimer+duration)
     currentTimer=timer
Loop

A loop will work provided you are able to accept your CPU being "eaten" 100%.

Few lines to solve this problem:

create proc sleep @time datetime
as
    WAITFOR DELAY @time
go

Sub Wait(seconds)
    dim wait_date
    wait_date = dateadd("s", seconds, 0)
    call SafeExecute(DBConn, "sleep '" & hour(wait_date) & ":" & minute(wait_date) & ":" & second(wait_date) & "'")
End Sub

...and of course replace "SafeExecute(DBConn" with your own call to ADO... :-)

aspTime Example:

<%
' Create an instance of Time Class
Set X = Server.CreateObject("ASPTime.Time")
' Start the stop-clock
X.Start()
'Your code goes here
.........
' Pause for 1.25 second
X.Pause(1.25)
' Stop the stop-clock
X.Stop()
' Print the TimeGap
Response.Write ("The code clocked " & X.TimeGap & " MilliSeconds")
%>

it seems easy to manipulate.
