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.

Note: This feature is available in Web Workers.

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);
}
