var id =; = id;

Property value

Type: String [JavaScript] | System.String [.NET] | Platform::String [C++]

The notification's identifier. This string is limited to 16 characters.


ScheduledTileNotification.tag and serve similar purposes:

  • The ScheduledTileNotification.tag property is used by Windows to prevent duplicate notification content from appearing in the queue at the same time. It allows the notification to be updated in-place in the queue to prevent it from containing out-of-date information.
  • The id property identifies the notification in the schedule. This allows the notification to be identified or removed from the schedule.


The following example, which shows a tile scheduled to display in one hour, includes the use of the Id property to label the scheduled notification.

var Notifications = Windows.UI.Notifications;
var currentTime = new Date();
var seconds = 60;
var dueTime = new Date(currentTime.getTime() + seconds * 60 * 1000);
var idNumber = 123456789;

var tileXml = Notifications.TileUpdateManager.getTemplateContent(Notifications.TileTemplateType.tileWide310x150Text09);

// Set up the wide tile text.
var tileTextAttributes = tileXml.getElementsByTagName("text");
tileTextAttributes[0].appendChild(tileXml.createTextNode("This is a scheduled notification"));
tileTextAttributes[1].appendChild(tileXml.createTextNode("Received: " + dueTime.toLocaleTimeString()));

// Set up the medium tile text.
var squareTileXml = Notifications.TileUpdateManager.getTemplateContent(Notifications.TileTemplateType.tileSquare150x150Text04);
var squareTileTextAttributes = squareTileXml.getElementsByTagName("text");
squareTileTextAttributes[0].appendChild(squareTileXml.createTextNode("This is a scheduled notification"));

// Include the medium tile in the notification.
var node = tileXml.importNode(squareTileXml.getElementsByTagName("binding").item(0), true);

// Create the notification object.
var futureTile = new Notifications.ScheduledTileNotification(tileXml, dueTime); = "Tile" + idNumber;

// Add to the schedule.
