How To Use

Open the ToastrIJ project and copy the ToastrIJ folder, or just the ToastrIJ control from inside it into your project.

Drag the ToastrIJ control onto your page and give it a useful name such as Toastr. It'll sit in the page's tray as it can not be positioned on the page.

Inspector

In the inspector you can change some Notification Options and the Notification Position settings. All of these options can also be set programatically.

ToastrIJ Inspector

CloseButton

Whether or not every notification should have a close button, regardless of whether it is a sticky notification or not. Sticky notifications always have a close button.

ExtendedTimeOut

How long does rolling the mouse over a notification extend how long it takes before it fades away. Default is 1 second (1,000 miliseconds).

TimeOut

How long until a non-sticky notification fades away. Default is 5 seconds (5,000 miliseconds).

HorizontalPosition

Can be Left, Center, Right or Full Width. Default is Right.

VerticalPosition

Can be Top or Bottom. Default is Top.

Displaying a Notification

It's as simple as...

Toastr.Display("This is a message")

That'll get you the default Info type message.

For an Error message...

Toastr.Display("Does not compute!", ToastrIJ.Type.Error)

There are four types:

ToastrIJ.Type.Info
ToastrIJ.Type.Success
ToastrIJ.Type.Warning
ToastrIJ.Type.Error

There are two signatures for the Display method:

Public Sub Display(Message As String, Type As ToastrIJ.Type = ToastrIJ.Type.Info, Sticky As Boolean = False)

Public Sub Display(Message As String, Type As ToastrIJ.Type = ToastrIJ.Type.Info, Title As String = "", Sticky As Boolean = False)

Clearing Notifications

If you need to clear all notifications in one fell swoop, use:

Toastr.Clear

To turn off the fade animation:

Toastr.Clear(False)

Demo App

The included demo app can be run to see some of the features.
