Interstitial ads

Add a way to close the interstitial ad

You can use one of the methods below to close an interstitial ad built for the Display & Video 360 environment.

Auto-close automatically closes the ad after a set period of time, while a close button allows the viewer to close the ad.

Add auto-close

In the example below, the ad auto-collapses after 15 seconds.

  1. Add a new event, making these selections in the event dialog:
    Target document.body
    Event Google Ad > Ad initialized
    Action Custom > Add custom action
    Configuration
    Give the function a name, such as closeAfter15s, then enter the following custom code (adjusting the time period as necessary):
    setTimeout(autoClose, 15000);
    function autoClose() {
      Enabler.close();
    }

Add a close button

  1. Create a button or other clear visual element for closing the ad.
  2. Add a Tap Area component positioned over the button.
  3. Add a new event, making these selections in the event dialog:
    Target gwd-taparea-1 (or the ID of the Tap Area component)
    Event Tap Area > Touch/Click
    Action Custom > Add custom action
    Configuration
    Give the function a name, such as closeAd, then enter the following custom code:
    Enabler.reportManualClose();
    Enabler.close();

Testing in preview

To verify in preview that the ad closes correctly, open the developer console in the browser and look for the "Closing ad" event.
