Restrict the maximum toast to show in EJ2 JavaScript Toast control

10 May 20234 minutes to read

You can restrict the maximum toast count by using the event callback function and terminate the toast displaying process by setting the cancel event property in the beforeOpen event.

The following sample demonstrates restricting toast displaying up to 3. You can restrict by your own count 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.' },
  { title: 'Information !', content: 'Please read the comments carefully.' }

var toastFlag = 0;
var maxCount = 3;
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: 'Right', Y: 'Bottom' },
    beforeOpen: onBeforeOpen

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

function onBeforeOpen(e) {
  if (maxCount === toast.element.childElementCount) {
   e.cancel =true;
  } else {
    e.cancel = false;
