Toast is used to display messages in an overlay.

import { Toast } from 'primereact/toast';

Messages are displayed by calling the show method provided by the component ref. A single message is specified by the Message interface that defines various properties such as severity, summary and detail.

<Toast ref={toast} />
<Button onClick={show} label="Basic" />

The severity option specifies the type of the message.

<Toast ref={toast} />
<Button label="Success" severity="success" onClick={showSuccess} />
<Button label="Info" severity="info" onClick={showInfo} />
<Button label="Warn" severity="warning" onClick={showWarn} />
<Button label="Error" severity="danger" onClick={showError} />
<Button label="Secondary" severity="secondary" onClick={showSecondary} />
<Button label="Contrast" severity="contrast" onClick={showContrast} />

Location of the messages is customized with the position property.

<Toast ref={toastTL} position="top-left" />
<Toast ref={toastBL} position="bottom-left" />
<Toast ref={toastBR} position="bottom-right" />
<Button label="Top Left" className="mr-2" onClick={showTopLeft} />
<Button label="Bottom Left" className="p-button-warning" onClick={showBottomLeft} />
<Button label="Bottom Right" className="p-button-success" onClick={showBottomRight} />

Multiple messages are displayed by passing an array to the show method.

<Toast ref={toast} />
<Button onClick={showMultiple} label="Multiple" className="p-button-warning" />

<Toast ref={toast} />
<Button onClick={showSticky} label="Sticky" severity="success" />
<Button onClick={clear} label="Clear" />

Custom content inside a message is defined with the content option.{
    severity: 'success',
    summary: 'Can you send me the report?',
    sticky: true,
    content: (props) => (
        <div className="flex flex-column align-items-left" style={{ flex: '1' }}>
            <div className="flex align-items-center gap-2">
                <Avatar image="/images/avatar/amyelsner.png" shape="circle" />
                <span className="font-bold text-900">Amy Elsner</span>
            <div className="font-medium text-lg my-3 text-900">{props.message.summary}</div>
            <Button className="p-button-sm flex" label="Reply" severity="success" onClick={clear}></Button>
