The global clearInterval() method cancels a timed, repeating action which was previously established by a call to setInterval(). If the parameter provided does not identify a previously established action, this method does nothing.




  • intervalID
    • : The identifier of the repeated action you want to cancel. This ID was returned by the corresponding call to setInterval().

It's worth noting that the pool of IDs used by setInterval() and setTimeout() are shared, which means you can technically use clearInterval() and clearTimeout() interchangeably. However, for clarity, you should avoid doing so.

Return value

None undefined.
