How to Create a WhatsApp-Style Notification System Using jQuery?

Estimated read time 2 min read

To create a WhatsApp-style notification system using jQuery, you can follow these steps:

  1. Create an HTML file with a container for the notification panel.
  2. Add CSS to style the notification panel.
  3. Write the jQuery code to display and hide the notification panel.

Here’s an example code that demonstrates how to create a WhatsApp-style notification system using jQuery:

HTML:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <title>WhatsApp-Style Notification System</title>
  <script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.6.0.min.js"></script>
  <style>
    #notification-panel {
      position: fixed;
      bottom: 20px;
      right: 20px;
      background-color: #fff;
      border: 1px solid #ccc;
      border-radius: 10px;
      box-shadow: 0px 0px 10px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2);
      padding: 10px;
      display: none;
      z-index: 999;
    }
    #notification-panel p {
      margin: 0;
      font-size: 14px;
      font-weight: bold;
    }
  </style>
</head>
<body>
  <div id="notification-panel">
    <p>You have a new message!</p>
  </div>
</body>
</html>

JavaScript:

$(document).ready(function() {
  var $notificationPanel = $('#notification-panel');

  function showNotification() {
    $notificationPanel.slideDown();
    setTimeout(function() {
      $notificationPanel.slideUp();
    }, 5000);
  }

  // Call the showNotification function when a button is clicked
  $('button').click(function() {
    showNotification();
  });
});

Explanation:

The JavaScript code sets a click event listener on a button element. When the button is clicked, the showNotification function is called. The showNotification function slides down the notification panel and sets a timeout of 5000 milliseconds (5 seconds) to slide up the notification panel.

The $notificationPanel variable gets the notification panel element. The $(‘#notification-panel’) selector selects the element with the id “notification-panel”. The $() function creates a jQuery object from the selected element, which allows us to call jQuery methods on the element.

The $notificationPanel.slideDown() method slides down the notification panel with a default animation of 400 milliseconds. The setTimeout() function sets a timeout of 5000 milliseconds (5 seconds) and calls the $notificationPanel.slideUp() method to slide up the notification panel with a default animation of 400 milliseconds.

You can customize the CSS and JavaScript code to create different types of notification systems. For example, you can add multiple notification panels for different types of notifications or add animations to the notification panel.
