await Sleep(x);

If you're looking for a quick way to pause runtime while you:

  • Wait for a response
  • Making sure a variable updated successfully
  • etc...

async/await sleep

Alt Text

The len param is measured in milliseconds.

example

Alt Text

Sauce.sleep(15000); Resolves after 15 seconds

The transaction would resolve before the balance updated so I paused the script for 15 seconds while the transaction was being mined.

Hope this helps!

Nice!
You have a small typo in "The len param is measured in seconds" it should be say milliseconds, not seconds
