Jquery add class but remove after x seconds

Hi Experts,

I have successfully written some script to add a class to a input field on keyup...

But i want it to be removed after X seconds after the user stops typing.

Could someone please assist.

Current erroneous code:
$('#banner-search #s').on("keyup", function () {
	if ($(this).val().length > 1) {
  $(this).addClass("loader-input");
	}
setTimeout(
  function() 
  {
   $(this).removeClass("loader-input");
  }, 3000);
});

Open in new window


Many Thanks

Hi,
this works:
$('#banner-search #s').on("keyup", function () {
	if ($(this).val().length > 1) {
  $(this).addClass("loader-input");
        setTimeout(RemoveClass, 3000);
	}
});

function RemoveClass() {
    $('#banner-search #s').removeClass("loader-input");
}
