By default, the Notifications remain visible for five seconds and then disappear.

Clicking anywhere on a notification hides it right away. You can delay hiding which is an option configurable in milliseconds. If you set a zero value, the automatic hiding is disabled. After its hiding animation is completed, the dismissed notification is removed from the DOM.

To make the Notification more intuitive for the end user, the widget allows you to display a visible Close button. The default behavior of hiding a notification by clicking anywhere on it can be disabled. In this case, the notification can be dismissed only by clicking the Close button, if present.

You can also postpone the manual hiding of a notification which is useful for preventing users from accidentally hiding a notification which has just appeared. By default, the delay for hiding a notification is disabled.

The following example demonstrates how to manage the hiding settings of a notification.

<span id="notification"></span>

            // hide automatically after 7 seconds
            autoHideAfter: 7000,
            // prevent accidental hiding for 1 second
            allowHideAfter: 1000,
            // show a hide button
            button: true,
            // prevent hiding by clicking on the notification content
            hideOnClick: false
