I know the project is due tonight. But when is the deadline to get feedback? I still can't get clearInterval() to work. Should I turn it in and get partial credit? Will I be penalized if I don't get it in today?
I know that we have hitherto been able to turn things in late with no penalty, but I'm not sure how long the TAs will be around to grade since we've had our last class. Brook said "for a week" on Monday. I'm turning in mine now with the comment that I will push a new version if/when I get it to work right.
That's probably what I will end up doing. I just hate to mess up my 99.7% any more.
Of course, NOW at 12:30 I figure it out. I was using my variables with setInterval() incorrectly! Now it works! I'm updating my submission.
Don't give up. They will get graded
i've been working with the setInterval used in Brook's code and do not understand why his call of setInterval with 3 parameters works. On the deck.html code. Very lost on that front.
I could never get setInterval to take parameters. When I tired it completely ignored the time delay I was trying to impose. So I put the parameters inside another function which then launched the function I was trying to launch to begin with.
What I mean is: Button launched setInterval(), which launched a middleman function which gave parameters and launched the sorting function.
The TAs will be grading until the 15th, if I understand our contract correctly. ;)
@kristjin Yeah, the setTimeout fonction is a bit of an odd one. The intention is to say, "I want function foo executed after a delay of 3000 microseconds". So you trigger it with `setTimeout(foo, 3000);' or similar.
