Anchor point for Public Methods Public Methods
Cookie Control offers various public methods to help make interacting with the module, and generally managing Cookies easier.
Please note, that by using some of these methods to set your own custom behaviour, you are taking on extra responsibility for considering and protecting people’s rights and interests.
Initiates the module based on the defined configuration object, passed in as a parameter.
Updates the module with a new configuration object, passed in as a parameter.
Triggers the module's open state. Useful if you wish to add your access points within privacy pages, etc.
Triggers the module's closed state. Useful if you have opened it with your own access points.
Programmatically sets the notification bar as accepted, which in turn activates the configuration's recommended purposes. Useful if you wish to add your own behaviour, such as accepting after scroll.If you choose to use this method, you are taking on extra responsibility for considering and protecting people’s rights and interests. Should you simply wish to hide the notification bar use notifyDismiss()
Programmatically sets the notification bar as rejected, which in turn disables the configuration's recommended purposes.
Programmatically sets the notification bar as dismissed. Useful if you wish to add your own behaviour, such as dismissing after scroll.
Programmatically accepts all cookie purposes.If you choose to use this method, you are taking on extra responsibility for considering and protecting people’s rights and interests.
Programmatically rejects all cookie purposes.
Returns the configuration object currently used by the module.
Returns the geoLocation object used by the module, describing a user's location by name, ISO code and EU status.
Similar to geoInfo, but it can be used prior to loading the module. You can use it to load different config objects for different locations. Please note that this will send a request to our server in order to determine the location. This request can be either sync (blocking) or async (non blocking), depending on whether you supply a callback parameter or not (see below).It accepts three parameters:
Example using a callback (recommended):
Example without using a callback:
Retrieve a cookie, by passing its name as a string parameter.Returns the value of the cookie if it exists, or 'false' otherwise.
