About ActionToast

ActionToast is simple, quick, single line popup notification system for iOS in the style of Toast for Android. ActionToast implements the same calling structure and styles as Toast for Android to assist in cross platform development.

Easy Implementation

Need to quickly catch a user's attention with a single line notification? ActionToast makes it easy. Either create an object of type UIActionToast and fill out it's properties or use the static MakeText method of the ActionToast class to create a popup. Next call the Show method to display it, just like in Xamarin.Android.

Multiple Locations

ActionToast can be set to display in multiple locations by setting the gravity property:

  • Top
  • Center
  • Bottom
  • Custom - A user defined location

All locations take the device's screen rotation into account so they always display correctly.

Multiple Display Lenghts

ActionToast can be set to display for a given amount of time by either providing the number of seconds to display or by using a UIActionToastLength as:

  • Forever - the message will display until the user taps it or it is closed programmatically
  • Short - display for one second
  • Medium - display for two seconds
  • Long - display for five seconds

Features

ActionToast includes a fully documented API with comments for every feature. ActionToast is available exclusively as part of the ActionPack Action Component Suite by Appracatappra, LLC.

iOS Example
