Notification.onclick

Note: This feature is available in Web Workers

Secure context: This feature is available only in secure contexts (HTTPS), in some or all supporting browsers.

The onclick property of the Notification interface specifies an event listener to receive click events. These events occur when the user clicks on a displayed Notification.

Syntax

Notification.onclick = function(event) { ... };

The default behavior is to move the focus to the viewport of the notification's related browsing context. If you don't want that behavior, call preventDefault() on the event object.

Examples

In the following example, we use an onclick handler to open a webpage in a new tab (specified by the inclusion of the '_blank' parameter) once a notification is clicked:

notification.onclick = function(event) {
  event.preventDefault(); // prevent the browser from focusing the Notification's tab
  window.open('http://www.mozilla.org', '_blank');
}
