Notify - add autodisappear and time function

Great to be able to give notifications to the user.


But I think it would be a great idea to add to parameters:

  1. Auto-disappear function - this should be a choice
  2. Time to show before the trickering 1. - this should be optional, so only with 1 selected to Auto-disappear and with a default if not filled.

Formula will then be:

Notify("Text to display", Type off notification, true/false, 2000) 

Last parameter in miliseconds, like in the timer.



Reason is simply that it's irritating for a user when it's needed to manually click away the notification bar, especially when it a information or success notification. For the error and warning I could amagine that you want this manual actie to be performed.


Hope for the support off the community for this functionality.

Status: Started

We have added an additional timeout argument to Notify:


Notify( Message [, NotificationType [ , Timeout ] ] )

  • Message – Required. Message to display to the user.
  • NotificationType – Optional. Type of the message to display from the table above. The default is NotificationType.Information.
  • Timeout – Optional. Number of milliseconds to wait before automatically dismissing the notification. The default is 10 seconds (or 10,000 milliseconds). The notification will be displayed indefinitely with a Timeout of 0.

This will be deployed worldwide within the next four weeks.

I second this...we need this added!

Level 8

This is so obvious and likely not terribly difficult to accomplish... any update on when this basic functionality might be available?

They could give this to one of their junior developers to knock out in a day! Not sure why simple improvements aren't being rolled out quickly..!? It's frustrating.
