I've got product filtering on my webpage whereby clicking checkboxes sends a new call for the products filtered by the selection.
But I don't want to allow multiple calls being made one after the other
What is the best way to delay the call by say 1 second? A timeout?
The ajax call should be cancelled if another ajax call is initiated.
