Sleep/Pause for specified number of seconds

Use the function below to do that. Function takes number of milliseconds to sleep as argument. So, if you want to pause execution of code for 2 seconds you'll pass 2000 (2 x 1000) as argument to this function.

function javascript_sleep(milliseconds)
{
 var date = new Date();
 var curDate = null;
 do
 { 
  curDate = new Date(); 
 }while(curDate - date < milliseconds);
}
