Notification.dir

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

Syntax

var direction = Notification.dir;

Value

A DOMString specifying the text direction. Possible values are:

  • auto: adopts the browser's language setting behavior (the default.)
  • ltr: left to right.
  • rtl : right to left.

Note: Most browsers seem to ignore explicit ltr and rtl settings, and just go with the browser-wide setting.

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?',
  dir: 'rtl'
}

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

console.log(n.dir) // should return 'rtl'
