ServiceWorkerGlobalScope: notificationclose event

The notificationclose event fires when a user closes a displayed notification spawned by ServiceWorkerRegistration.showNotification().

Notifications created on the main thread or in workers which aren't service workers using the Notification() constructor will instead receive a close event on the Notification object itself.

Note: Trying to create a notification inside the ServiceWorkerGlobalScope using the Notification() constructor will throw an error.

This event is not cancelable and does not bubble.


Use the event name in methods like addEventListener(), or set an event handler property.


addEventListener("notificationclose", (event) => {});

onnotificationclose = (event) => {};
