Customizing the close ad button

You can include a custom close ad button in expandable ads and panels.

In expanding ads, when a viewer clicks a custom close ad button, the ad collapses. The custom close ad button replaces the default close button that is normally displayed in the upper right corner of an expanded ad. You can place your custom close ad button anywhere on your ad.

In panels, when a viewer clicks a custom close ad button, the panel closes and the ad collapses. Alternatively, you can close a panel without collapsing the ad. For background information and steps, see Adding layers to creatives with panels.
