Show Toast

Overview

Use a toast message to confirm a user's action and provide feedback. Toasts are overlaid notifications that stack horizontally and can be dismissed by the user.
Use a toast for one of these types of responses:
  • Info: inform users that their actions have triggered a process, and they may have to wait for completion before proceeding.
  • Success: Confirm a successful or completed action.
  • Warning: Warning toasts inform users of potential issues related to their actions and guide them to prevent future problems.
  • Error: Communicate an issue preventing a user from completing their current action and can be fixed within their current flow.
In general, use a toast interaction in response to user action. To decide whether you should use Toasts or another type of messaging, jump to Toasts vs. Alert Modal vs. Confirm interaction.
