View Full Version : Delaying an overlay that is automatically loaded..

07-13-2011, 09:20 PM
Hello to all, new to this forum so pardon any mistakes in my question.

I have an overlay that contains a video which loads upon page load.

<script type="text/javascript">
$(function() {
mask: {
color: '#000',
loadSpeed: 1000,
startOpacity: 0,
zIndex: 9997,
opacity: .85
top: 131,
closeOnClick: true,
load: true,

onLoad: function(){
var $overlay = this;
setTimeout(function(){$overlay.close()}, 44000)


I'd like to delay this by about 5 seconds or so but can't figure out how to do so as I am a JS n00b.

The overlay is contained in a div: <div id="intro_video">

Thank you for your help.
