Prevent duplicate toast display

You can prevent identical same toast displaying in a screen by the event function and terminate the toast displaying process by setting the cancel event property in the beforeOpen event.

The following sample demonstrates preventing duplicate title toast element displaying with custom code blocks.


//Initialize Toast component
var toasts = [
    { title: 'Warning !', content: 'There was a problem with your network connection.' },
    { title: 'Success !', content: 'Your message has been sent successfully.' },
    { title: 'Error !', content: 'A problem has been occurred while submitting your data.' },
var toastFlag = 0;

var toast = new ej.notifications.Toast({
    title: 'Matt sent you a friend request',
    content: 'You have a new friend request yet to accept',
    target: document.body,
    position: {
        X: 'Center'
    beforeOpen: onBeforeOpen
//Render initialized Toast component

document.getElementById('show_toast').onclick = function () {[toastFlag]);
  if (toastFlag === (toasts.length)) {
      toastFlag = 0;

function onBeforeOpen(e) {
   e.cancel = preventDuplicate(e);

function preventDuplicate(e) {
    var toastEle = e.element;
    var toasts = e.toastObj.element.children;
    for (var i = 0; i < toasts.length; i++) {
        if ((toasts[i]).querySelector('.e-toast-title').isEqualNode(toastEle.querySelector('.e-toast-title'))) {
            return true;
    return false;
