Solution for "error[E0425]: cannot find function `every` in module `time`" when using Iced Rust GUI library

Figure 1: Winter scenery

Problem: Running into the following error when trying to use the Iced GUI library for a Rust program that replicates the stopwatch Iced GUI example:

$ cargo build
error[E0425]: cannot find function `every` in module `time`
   --> src\
203 |                 time::every(Duration::from_millis(10)).map(Message::Tick)
    |                       ^^^^^ not found in `time`

Solution: The problem was that the smol feature was not included in the features option for the iced dependency listed in the Cargo.toml file.

Try replacing your existing iced dependency line with the following line:

# Cargo.toml file

iced = {version = "0.6", features = ["smol"]}

Then run cargo build and see if the error is resolved!
