  • // @input bool version3 = false { "label":"Use delay" }

    // @ui {"widget": "group_start", "label": "Settings", "showIf":"version3"}

    // @input SceneObject setEnabledTarget {"label": "Target"}

    // @input float triggerDelay {"label": "Delay Time"}

    // @ui {"widget": "group_end"}


    debugPrint("Delay time: " + script.triggerDelay);


    var delayedEvent = script.createEvent("DelayedCallbackEvent");



        script.setEnabledTarget.enabled = false;

       debugPrint("Disabled: " + script.setEnabledTarget);




    function debugPrint(message) {

        print("[delay script] " + message);

  • Thanks Samuel!

    Being a beginner in programming, I'm not sure how to do it. I read the code and more or less understood what it was doing.

    I created a script with your code.

    And then what do I do with the script?I linked the script with the image / text, Is that what I had to do?
