Type Method

wait(forDuration:withRange:)

Creates an action that idles for a randomized period of time.

Declaration

class func wait(forDuration duration: TimeInterval, withRange durationRange: TimeInterval) -> SKAction

Parameters

sec

The average amount of time to wait.

durationRange

The range of possible values for the duration.

Return Value

A new action object.

Discussion

When the action executes, the action waits for the specified amount of time, then ends. This is typically used as part of a sequence of actions to insert a delay between two other actions. However, you might also use it in conjunction with the run(_:completion:) method to trigger code that needs to run at a later time.

Each time the action is executed, the action computes a new random value for the duration. The duration may vary in either direction by up to half of the value of the durationRange parameter.

This action is not reversible; the reverse of this action is the same action.
