I want to say two things.
1.What license does here?
2.Most of us know and @Taifun has already mentioned it in a lot of topics that wait() is not really useful as it seems.

Dint get you

It doesn't use "wait()", it uses different method...

Code is used in coding :kissing:

How to get ID to use it?

I believe the ID is just used to identify which wait process is completed:
component_event

Hello KUMARASWAMY

So it doesn't wait for something, such as a download, to complete? Do you have example code to show it's intended purpose?

I will show you an example soon.

I test it , i thought it work like delay but it block the button.
When using slider it become very slow.

In short, it blocks any kind of interaction with UI just like what wait() does.

Yes, because the actual work of the extension, it pauses app for a movement.

This can work in replacement of clock. As we use clock one time for enabling it a use the yellow block of when timer.

By this extension we won't have to use the timer for waiting or triggering an event after a given time.

Good extension :+1::+1: :+1:
