The close() method of the Notification interface is used to close a previously displayed notification.

Syntax

Notification.close();

Parameters

None.

Returns

Void.

Examples

In the following snippet, found in our Emogotchi demo (view it running live), we have a simple function that when called creates an options object and then a new notification. At the end of the function, it also calls close() inside a setTimeout() function to close the notification after 4 seconds (some browsers close spawned notifications automatically, and some such as Chrome and Opera do not.) Also note the use of bind() to make sure the close() call is associated with the notification.

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

  var n = new Notification(theTitle,options);
  setTimeout(n.close.bind(n), 4000);
}
