Examples

The following example uses the TileNotification constructor to create a new instance, then uses the ExpirationTime property to show a tile notification for 30 seconds.

function tileNotificationExpiration() {
    var Notifications = Windows.UI.Notifications;
    var tileXml = Notifications.TileUpdateManager.getTemplateContent(Notifications.TileTemplateType.tileWide310x150Text04);

    var currentTime = new Date();
    var seconds = 30;

    var tileTextAttributes = tileXml.getElementsByTagName("text");
    tileTextAttributes[0].appendChild(tileXml.createTextNode("This notification will expire at " + new Date(currentTime.getTime() + seconds * 1000)));

    var tileNotification = new Notifications.TileNotification(tileXml);

    // Set the expiration time on the notification
    var expiryTime = new Date(currentTime.getTime() + seconds * 1000);

    tileNotification.expirationTime = expiryTime;
    Notifications.TileUpdateManager.createTileUpdaterForApplication().update(tileNotification);
}

Constructors

TileNotification(XmlDocument)

Creates and initializes a new instance of the TileNotification object for use with a TileUpdater.

Properties

Content

Gets the XML description of the notification content, which you can then manipulate to alter the notification.

ExpirationTime

Gets or sets the time that Windows will remove the notification from the tile. By default, a tile update does not expire. It is a best practice to explicitly set an expiration time to avoid stale content.

Tag

Gets or sets a string that Windows can use to prevent duplicate notification content from appearing in the queue.
