Customize the Content

The Toast widget provides four predefined appearances controlled by the type option. The type can be "info", "warning", "error" or "success", depending on the mood of the message that the Toast displays. You can specify this message using the message option.

$(function() {
    $("#toastContainer").dxToast({
        type: "success", // or "info" | "warning" | "error"
        message: "Completed successfully!"
    });
});

If you need to define the Toast content completely, specify a template for it. You can simply put this template inside the Toast container...

HTML
<div id="toastContainer">
    <p style="background-color:green">Toast content</p>
</div>

... or you can combine the HTML markup for the template in the contentTemplate function. Note that this function will be called only once - when the Toast appears for the first time.

JavaScript
$(function() {
    $("#toastContainer").dxToast({
        type: "custom",
        contentTemplate: function () {
            return $("<p />").text("Toast content")
                             .css("background-color", "green");
        }
    });
});
NOTE
To avoid rendering issues, always set the type option to "custom" when you use a custom template.

If you need to render different templates depending on a specific condition, define them inside the Toast container using the DevExtreme dxTemplate markup component. To switch the templates on-the-fly, change the value of the contentTemplate option.

HTML
<div id="toastContainer">
    <div data-options="dxTemplate: { name: 'green' }">
        <p style="background-color:green">Green template</p>
    </div>
    <div data-options="dxTemplate: { name: 'blue' }">
        <p style="background-color:blue">Blue template</p>
    </div>
</div>
<div id="buttonContainer"></div>
JavaScript
$(function() {
    var toast = $("#toastContainer").dxToast({
        type: "custom",
        contentTemplate: 'green'
    }).dxToast("instance");

    $("#buttonContainer").dxButton({
        text: "Change the Toast Template", 
        onClick: function (e) {
            if (toast.option("contentTemplate") == "green") {
                toast.option("contentTemplate", "blue");
            } else {
                toast.option("contentTemplate", "green");
            }
            toast.show();
        } 
    });
});
