So I am trying to put a delay between lines of code using C#. In GDScript, I can do something like this:

func _ready():
    yield(get_tree().create_timer(1.0), "timeout")

But I can't figure out how to do the same thing using C#. Are there anyway to achieve the same effect using C#? Thanks!

await ToSignal(timer, "timeout");

consider using this way, not best but enough to do your work

float time = 0;

float timer(float delta, float a){
    return a += 1 * delta;

public override void _Process(float delta){
    time = timer(delta,  time);
    if  (time > 5.0f){
        //do whatever you want to do

Are there any function in C# that does exactly like yield(get_tree().create_timer(1.0), "timeout")? Because I just want a delay between specific pieces of code, not an overall timer.

consider visiting this page of godot document, not sure if this what you want

and btw what you want to delay code execution if you can tell me I can further assist you

public async void ShowGameOver()
    // option 1
    var messageTimer = GetNode<Timer>("MessageTimer");
    await ToSignal(messageTimer, "timeout");

     // option 2   
    await ToSignal(GetTree().CreateTimer(1), "timeout");

I'm sorry, probably late to the party :D

Looking to do things through program rather than nodes. c#

Made a float variable, set an if statement to check if it's working.

public class maketimer : Node2D
// Declare member variables here. Examples:
// private int a = 2;
// private string b = "text";

public float myTime = 0.0f;

// Called when the node enters the scene tree for the first time.
public override void _Ready()
    System.Console.WriteLine("confirm script");


// // Called every frame. 'delta' is the elapsed time since the previous frame.
public override void _Process(float delta)
myTime += delta;
if(myTime > 3){
myTime = 0;

public void hello(){
System.Console.WriteLine("from timer");

await ToSignal(GetTree().CreateTimer(0.5f), "timeout");

Just make the containing function async as well.

I know this is an old post but this is how I do it

using System;
using System.Threading.Tasks;

public override void _Ready()

private async DelayMethod()
    await Task.Delay(TimeSpan.FromMilliseconds(1000));
    GD.Print("1 second delay!");
