How to display messages in Javascript in the Hyva theme

In today’s article, I will explain to you how to display messages in Javascript in the Hyva theme.

Hyvä, the modern Magento 2 front-end theme, introduces a convenient way to display messages using the global function window.dispatchMessages(). This function allows developers to show messages to users based on different types, such as success, notice, warning, or error.

Types of Messages

The type property in the message object allows you to categorize messages based on their purpose. 

Here are some commonly used types:

  1. Success: Indicates successful operations.
  2. Notice: Provides important information or updates.
  3. Warning: Warns users about potential issues or actions.
  4. Error: Alerts users about errors or unsuccessful operations.
       type: "success",
       text: "Well done! Make haste, my friend, because this message as ephemeral , all good things are!"
], 2000);


Message output

This JavaScript code waits for the HTML document to fully load (DOMContentLoaded event). Upon loading, it logs a success message to the console after a 2-second delay, using the dispatchMessages function. 

The message is defined in an array with a type (“success”) and text.

   document.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', function() {
       function dispatchMessages(messages, delay) {
           messages.forEach(message => {
               setTimeout(() => {
                   console.log(`[${message.type}] ${message.text}`);
               }, delay);

       // Call the function with your example data
           type: "success",
           text: "Well done! Make haste, my friend, because this message is ephemeral; all good things are!"
       }], 2000);

The provided code exemplifies the usage of dispatchMessages by displaying a success message after a 2-second delay. This script is designed to wait for the HTML document to fully load, as indicated by the DOMContentLoaded event listener. Upon loading, the success message is logged to the console, showcasing the message type (“success”) and its corresponding text.

To comprehend the code structure, we define a function named dispatchMessages, which accepts an array of message objects and a delay time as parameters. Within this function, we use a forEach loop to iterate through each message and employ the setTimeout function to log the messages with a specified delay.

The provided example demonstrates the call to the dispatchMessages function with a success message, offering a glimpse into the seamless integration of messages within the Hyvä theme. Developers can customize the message types, texts, and delays to tailor the user experience on their Magento 2 store.
