Hello Experts,

I am using the "setTimeout" function to add a class to a preloader element.
I want to remove the element from the page after 1s.

The first code is the initial and the second is what does not work for removing the element.

Can you please let me know how to "callback" after the 1s and remove the "#loader" element from the DOM?

setTimeout(function() {
 } ,1000);

Open in new window

setTimeout(function() {
 } ,1000, function() {

Open in new window

setTimeout(function() {

leakim971 as always you are a star :-)
I thought there is a way to combine one function with the "remove". Okay i will have two functions instead.
Many thanks!!!
