[Feature Request] ShowToast can return handle to toast instance in order to close or update it.

See original GitHub issue


I would like to show toasts instead of wait overlays in different scenarios.

For example when user click a button, I’m sending some emails in the background and during the process I would like to show a toast with messing “Sending emails…”. When done sending, I would like to either close the toast, or update it to “Emails sent”.


var toastReference = await toastService.ShowToastAsync(ToastLevel.Info, "Sending emails");
await Task.Delay(1000);
toastReference.Timeout = TimeSpan.MaxValue; //or TimeSpan.Zero or null?
toastReference.Level = ToastLevel.Success;
toastReference.Message = "Emails sent!";

I can do PR once agreed on the design

Thanks for raising this @Liero. It is actually already being worked on as part of the next major version! I’ll tag this issue as part of that milestone so we make sure we don’t overlook anything.

I’ve already done it, see ToastService.cs and ToastReference.cs.

I use the same approach for updating the toast (for example I change title, content, severity etc of existing toast)

Feel free to inspire
