BrowserTab.close()

By Opera Software

From Opera 15 onward, Opera 11 & 12’s extension format is no longer supported, and instead, we’ve switched to Chromium’s extension model. Check out our new documentation for developing extensions for Opera 15 and higher and start building your own extensions.

Description:

The close() method provides a way to close a browser tab.

Parameters:

None

Syntax:

void close ()

Example:

The following example creates a button on the browser toolbar. When the button is clicked, the current tab is detected and then closed.

//
// The background process (e.g. index.html) 
//

// Specify the properties of the button before creating it.
var UIItemProperties = {
  disabled: false,
  title: "Example extension",
  icon: "images/icon_18.png",
  onclick: function() {
    // Get the current tab as a BrowserTab object
    var thisTab = opera.extension.tabs.getSelected();
    
    // Close the current tab
    thisTab.close()
  }
};

// Create the button and add it to the toolbar.
var button = opera.contexts.toolbar.createItem( UIItemProperties );  
opera.contexts.toolbar.addItem(button);
