The Inbox is where you can find new and recent messages that you are subscribed to. If enabled, this is also where users can find the settings page.

This component pairs well with:


How to use #

If you use the <InboxLauncher /> with default settings, you do not need to add a separate <Inbox /> component to your page. However, if you use the <InboxLauncher /> and set showInboxOnClick={false}, then you will need to add a separate <Inbox /> component. In that case, you can connect the components by adding event listeners for the <InboxLauncher /> onClick event handler and the <Inbox /> closeRequested event handler and running your own functions as required.

React:
import { Inbox } from "@cord-sdk/react";

export const Example = () => (
  <body>
    <div id="header">
      <Inbox showCloseButton={false} style={{ height: "600px", width: "400px;" }} />
    </div>
  </body>
);
Vanilla JavaScript:
<body>
  <div id="header">
    <cord-inbox show-close-button="false" style="height: 600px; width: 400px"></cord-inbox>
  </div>
</body>
              
import { Inbox } from "@cord-sdk/react";

export const Example = () => (
  <body>
    <div id="header">
      <Inbox showCloseButton={false} style={{ height: "600px", width: "400px;" }} />
    </div>
  </body>
