Examples

In this simple example we add a listener to the notifications.onClicked event to listen for system notifications being clicked. When this occurs, we log an appropriate message to the console.

browser.notifications.onClicked.addListener(function(notificationId) {
  console.log('Notification ' + notificationId + ' was clicked by the user');
});
