It is necessary to meet certain requirements to be able to use this component (see Deploying Search Alerts on a Coveo JS Search Page).

See also the FollowItem component.

  • Get the bound component to the given HTMLElement. Throws an assert if the HTMLElement has no component bound, unless using the noThrow argument.
    If there is multiple component bound to the current HTMLElement, you must specify the component class.

    Parameters

    • element: HTMLElement

      HTMLElement for which to get the bound component.
