Notification.lang

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

The language itself is specified using a DOMString representing a BCP 47 language tag. See the Sitepoint ISO 2 letter language codes page for a simple reference.

Note: This feature is available in Web Workers.

Syntax

var language = Notification.lang;

Value

A DOMString specifying the language tag.

Examples

The following snippet fires a notification; a simple options object is created, then the notification is fired using the Notification() constructor.

var options = {
  body: 'Do you like my body?',
  lang: 'en-US'
}

var n = new Notification('Test notification',options);

n.lang // should return 'en-US'
