The body read-only property of the Notification interface indicates the body string of the notification, as specified in the body option of the Notification() constructor.

Syntax

var body = Notification.body;

Value

A DOMString.

Examples

In our Emogotchi demo (see source code), we run a simple spawnNotification() function when we want to fire a notification — this is passed arguments to specify the body, icon and title we want, then it creates the necessary options object and fires the notification using the Notification() constructor.

function spawnNotification(theBody, theIcon, theTitle) {
  var options = {
      body: theBody,
      icon: theIcon
  }
  var n = new Notification(theTitle, options);
}
