How to use Process.sleep in elm 0.19?

Greetings,

can somebody explain how to use Process.sleep in elm 0.19?

I’ve found example for elm 0.18, but now it deprecated.
Thanks a lot.

Looks like it works the same in 0.19? I’m not seeing any signs of it being deprecated https://package.elm-lang.org/packages/elm/core/latest/Process#sleep

Hi!
Could you describe more what you want to achieve? It’s easier to explain how to do a specific thing than to write a full documentation on how something works.

Hi,

I’m trying to apply style on div element with some delay.

Simple case:

  • user clicks on the button
  • the label changes color to red
  • after 100ms the color changes to green

Here’s the example code https://ellie-app.com/39LXS5pzJkJa1

P.S I found that Elm doesn’t update the view in the case below:

update : Msg -> Model -> ( Model, Cmd Msg )
update msg model =
    case msg of
        ChangeStyle ->
            ( { model | color = "red" } -- this doesn't change the view!
            , Task.perform ChangeStyleSet (Task.succeed "green") -- but this does
            )

        ChangeStyleSet color ->
            ( { model | color = color }
            , Cmd.none
            )

So I decided to add a little bit delay to update style on the DOM element.
Actually I needed it for quickly update style on textarea on height attribute from pixels to “auto” for normalize height.

Ok, I see what you want to do, here is how you can do it:

Process.sleep 100 |> Task.perform (always (ChangeStyleSet "green"))
