    alert message

    Requirement: I want to show alert message to user after 5 minutes and after 9 minutes after page loading

    I use setTimeOut function .l...but it seems its throwing alerts repetitively. Is it a repetitive function ? Can you please suggest a solution to my requirement ?

    setTimeOut should only fire once.

    Here's an example using jQuery:
    Code JavaScript:
    $(document).ready(function() {
      setTimeout(function(){alert("Fired after ten seconds");}, 10000);
      setTimeout(function(){alert("Fired after twenty seconds");}, 20000);
    });

    In this example you should see two alert boxes (after ten and twenty seconds respectively).

    Herew's the same example ithout jQuery

    Code:
    setTimeout(function(){alert("Fired after ten seconds");}, 10000);  
    setTimeout(function(){alert("Fired after twenty seconds");}, 20000);
    Note that the second alert may not fire if the person viewing the first alert checks the option to turn off JavaScript.

    +1 for the reminder that jQuery is JavaScript.
