CKEDITOR.plugins.notification

class since 4.5

Notification class. Notifications are used to display short messages to the user. They might be used to show the result of asynchronous actions or information about changes in the editor content. It is recommended to use them instead of alert dialogs. They should not be used if a user response is required nor with dialog windows (e.g. in dialog validation).

There are four types of notifications available, see the type property.

Note that the notification constructor only creates a notification instance. To show it, use the show method:

var notification = new CKEDITOR.plugins.notification( editor, { message: 'Foo' } );
notification.show();

You can also use the CKEDITOR.editor.showNotification method:

editor.showNotification( 'Foo' );

All of the notification actions: (show, update and hide) fire cancelable events on the related CKEDITOR.editor instance so you can integrate editor notifications with your website notifications.

Refer to the Notifications article for more information about this feature.
