The notification bar is used for global notifications, concerning the whole environment or account.
The bar can show
- messages, e.g. "A new security gateway is available for you."
- incidents and alerts, e.g. "Your account is about to expire."
The messages may contain links that allow users to perform related actions directly. An abort icon button allows to dismiss a notification. There can be multiple layers of notification bars, the most recent on top.
- Use a white notification bar for an informational message.
- Use a yellow notification bar for incidents and alerts.
The notification bar slides in from left to right directly underneath the menubar. By clicking the abort icon the bar slides back out to the left again.
