Notification Center

OpenFin Notification Center provides application developers with a uniform way to create and organize desktop notifications as well as respond to notification events (notification clicked, closed, etc). Notifications are displayed as toasts as well as listed and organized in a Notification Center. These notifications can be configured with buttons, icons, and categories. Notifications can also contain actions to help users stay up-to-date and notified of events within an OpenFin application.

The Notification Center is home to all OpenFin application notifications and is accessed by clicking on the Notification icon in the system tray.
