getURL() setTimeout(javascript:) issue

 2:07 pm on Feb 10, 2009 (gmt 0)

Hello All,
While using a getURL and then trying to call a js function I've run into a timing issue, my getURL needs to happen first and then I'd like to use a setTimeout to call the js function after 3000 milli's.

I'm not new to actionscript but could use some help on this one as I've been looking around the web for some examples and haven't found anything useful yet.

If anyone has any useful links or examples around this one it would be great if you could point me in the right direction.

Ok see here is what I've come up with thus far:

onPress function(){

onRelease function(){

I'd like the onRelease to have the setTimout on it...

Any tips?

I answered my own question but thought I should share :)

onRelease = function(){
setTimeout(function(){getURL("http://wwwmysite.com"+myURL);), 1000);
