Delay or Pause function on application start



I am trying to redirect application when loads so I used below function OnStart and it's working fine but I would like to add delay or pause, so I would like to know is it possible to pause before it redirects.Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Launch("New Site URL", {q: "New Site Name"}, LaunchTarget.Replace)


Thank you,

Instead of App OnStart, on your 1st screen you can have a label saying Redirecting....


Then have a hidden TimerControl


Set the duration of TimerControl to be the delay you want to add

Make sure your timer starts automatically


OnTimerEnd - put the code for Launch()
