Badge the app icon

Your application's icon is actually a badge capable of displaying a number. You can use it as a way to show a count of notifications or any other number that is significant for your application:

Here's how to increment the badge count:

// get a reference to the app's UI Container
const { ui } = this.props.dpapp
ui.badgeCount++;
//show the count
ui.showBadgeCount();

The following snippet shows how to decrement the badge count:

// get a reference to the app's UI Container
const { ui } = this.props.dpapp
ui.badgeCount--;
//hide the count
if (ui.badgeCount === 0) {
ui.hideBadgeCount();
}
