Installation and configuration

You can use Create-react-app to setup the applications. To install create-react-app run the following command.

npm install -g create-react-app

Start a new project using create-react-app command as follows

create-react-app quickstart --scripts-version=react-scripts-ts

cd quickstart
create-react-app quickstart

cd quickstart

Install the below required dependency package in order to use the Toast component in your application.

npm install @syncfusion/ej2-react-notifications –save

The above package installs Toast dependencies which are required to render the Toast component in React environment.

  • Toast CSS files are available in the ej2-react-notifications package folder. Import the Toast component’s required CSS references as follows in src/App.css.
@import '../../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-base/styles/material.css';
@import '../../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-react-buttons/styles/material.css';
@import '../../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-react-popups/styles/material.css';
@import '../../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-react-notifications/styles/material.css';

Initialize the Toast with message

The Toast message can be rendered by defining an title or content.

  • Import the Toast component to your src/App.tsx file using following code.

{% compileJsx=true %}

import { ToastComponent  } from '@syncfusion/ej2-react-notifications';
import * as React from "react";
import './App.css';

class App extends React.Component<{}, {}> {
  public toastInstance:ToastComponent;

  public toastCreated(): void {
    this.toastInstance.show();
  }

  public render() {
    return (
      <ToastComponent ref={toast => this.toastInstance = toast!} title="Sample Toast Title" content="Sample Toast Content" created={this.toastCreated = this.toastCreated.bind(this)} />
    );
  }
};
ReactDOM.render(<App />, document.getElementById('element'));

{% endtab %}

  • Run the application in the browser using the following command.
npm start

Output will be as follows:

App.tsx
App.css.jsx
App.jsx
index.jsx
import { ToastComponent  } from '@syncfusion/ej2-react-notifications';
import * as React from "react";
import * as ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
import './App.css';

class App extends React.Component<{}, {}> {
  public toastInstance:ToastComponent;
  public toastCreated(): void {
    this.toastInstance.show();
  }

  public render() {
    return (
      <ToastComponent ref={toast => this.toastInstance = toast!} title="Matt sent you a friend request" content="Hey, wanna dress up as wizards and ride our hoverboards?" created={this.toastCreated = this.toastCreated.bind(this)} />
    );
  }
};
export default App;
import { ToastComponent } from '@syncfusion/ej2-react-notifications';
import * as React from "react";
import './App.css';
class App extends React.Component {
    toastCreated() {
        this.toastInstance.show();
    }
    render() {
        return (<ToastComponent ref={toast => this.toastInstance = toast} title="Matt sent you a friend request" content="Hey, wanna dress up as wizards and ride our hoverboards?" created={this.toastCreated = this.toastCreated.bind(this)}/>);
    }
}
;
export default App;
import * as React from 'react';
import * as ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
import App from './App';
ReactDOM.render(<App />, document.getElementById('root'));

Initialize the Toast with target

By default toast can be rendered in document body, we can change the target position for toast rendering using target property.

In the above sample code, #element is the id of the HTML element in a page to which the Toast is initialized.

Preview
App.tsx
App.css.jsx
App.jsx
index.jsx
import { ToastComponent  } from '@syncfusion/ej2-react-notifications';
import * as React from "react";
import './App.css';

class App extends React.Component<{}, {}> {
  public toastInstance: ToastComponent;

  public toastCreated(): void {
    this.toastInstance.show();
  }

  public render() {
    return (
      <div>
        <div id='#toast_target' />
        <ToastComponent id='toast_target' ref={toast => this.toastInstance = toast!} title="Sample Toast Title" content="Sample Toast Content" created={this.toastCreated = this.toastCreated.bind(this)} />
      </div>
    );
  }
};
export default App;
import { ToastComponent } from '@syncfusion/ej2-react-notifications';
import * as React from "react";
import './App.css';
class App extends React.Component {
    toastCreated() {
        this.toastInstance.show();
    }
    render() {
        return (<div>
        <div id='#toast_target'/>
        <ToastComponent id='toast_target' ref={toast => this.toastInstance = toast} title="Sample Toast Title" content="Sample Toast Content" created={this.toastCreated = this.toastCreated.bind(this)}/>
      </div>);
    }
}
;
export default App;
import * as React from 'react';
import * as ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
import App from './App';
ReactDOM.render(<App />, document.getElementById('root'));
