Timeout in Vaadin


First of all, sorry for my english isn’t good :slight_smile:

I am working on a Vaadin project over a year (excellent framework by the way). I’ve come from PHP language and there is one thing that I miss (i’m not sure if there is a similar here) and it’s the “window.setTimeout”.

In php (javascript) I can call a function when passing a time (in milliseconds). There is a way to do this in Vaadin?

In most posts, people attach the timeout with the “session-timeout”, but i’m not interested in it :slight_smile:

I hope you can help me.

Thank you!


You can use
. If you want the scheduled task to update the UI, you need two more things: Enable
support, and use

public class ExampleUI extends UI {


protected void init(VaadinRequest request) {

    ScheduledExecutorService executorService = Executors.newScheduledThreadPool(1);
    executorService.schedule(this::showNotification, 5000, TimeUnit.MILLISECONDS);

private void showNotification() {
    UI.getCurrent().access(() -> {
        Notification.show("It works!");

[/code]Hope that helps :slight_smile:

Yeah, it works! This is exactly what I was looking for.

Thank you very much :slight_smile:
