PushEvent()

The PushEvent() constructor creates a new PushEvent object. Note that this constructor is exposed only to a service worker context.

Syntax

new PushEvent(type)
new PushEvent(type, options)

Parameters

type

A string with the name of the event. It is case-sensitive and browsers set it to push or pushsubscriptionchange.

options Optional

An object that, in addition of the properties defined in ExtendableEvent(), can have the following properties:

data

The data you want the PushEvent to contain, if any. When the constructor is invoked, the PushEvent.data property of the resulting object will be set to a new PushMessageData object containing these bytes.

Return value

A new PushEvent object.

Examples

const dataInit = {
  data : 'Some sample text'
}

const myPushEvent = new PushEvent('push', dataInit);

myPushEvent.data.text(); // should return 'Some sample text'
