Namespace: cq-message-toaster

WebComponents. cq-message-toaster

Message toaster web component <cq-message-toaster>.

Displays pop-up messages, also known as toasts.

Listens for a chart engine event of type "notification" and displays the notification as a pop-up message over the chart.

To trigger the notification event, call CIQ.ChartEngine#dispatch with the "notification" type and the required notification listener data (see notificationEventListener), for example:

stxx.dispatch("notification", { message: "A toast!" });

Toasts are displayed immediately unless another toast is already on screen. Concurrent toasts are displayed sequentially, not simultaneously.

When a toast is created, it's added to a display queue. The toast at the front of the queue is dequeued and displayed when no other toasts are on screen. Toasts can be prioritized (that is, reordered in the queue) by setting the priority parameter of the notificationEventListener argument.

Attributes:

Name Description Valid Values
defaultDisplayTime Amount of time, in seconds, toasts are displayed before being automatically dismissed (removed from the display). Integer numbers >= 0. A value of 0 causes toasts to remain on screen — blocking the toast display queue — until selected by the user.
defaultPosition Vertical on-screen position of toasts relative to the chart. (Toasts are centered horizontally.) "top" or "bottom"
defaultTransition Animation used to display and dismiss toasts. "fade", "slide", "pop" or "drop"

Note: All attributes can be overridden by the argument provided to notificationEventListener.

Since:
  • 8.2.0

Example

<cq-message-toaster
    defaultDisplayTime="10"
    defaultTransition="slide"
    defaultPosition="top"
</cq-message-toaster>

Methods


createMessageElement(notification)

Creates a new toast DOM element. Toast elements have the cq-toast-message class attribute.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
notification object

Data object from a "notification" event. See notificationEventListener.

Note: This parameter does not accommodate the string type specified in notificationEventListener.

Properties
Name Type Argument Default Description
message string

Text to display in the toast notification. Strings longer than 160 characters are truncated.

position string <optional>
"top"

Position of the toast on the chart: "top" or "bottom". Overrides the defaultPosition attribute of the <cq-message-toaster> element.

type string <optional>
"info"

Toast style: "info", "error", "warning", or "confirmation". Overrides the defaultTransition attribute of the <cq-message-toaster> element.

transition string <optional>

Type of animation used to display and dismiss the toast: "fade", "slide", "pop" or "drop". The default is no transition.

displayTime number <optional>
10

Number of seconds to display the toast before automatically dismissing it. A value of 0 causes the toast to remain on screen — preventing other toasts from displaying — until the toast is selected by the user. Overrides the defaultDisplayTime attribute of the <cq-message-toaster> element.

priority number <optional>
0

Priority of the toast relative to others in the display queue. Higher priority toasts are displayed before toasts with lower priority. For example, a toast with priority = 4 is displayed before a toast with priority = 1. Toasts with the same priority are displayed in the order they were created; that is, in the order they entered the display queue.

callback function <optional>

Function to call when the toast is selected (dismissed) by the user. If the toast is dismissed automatically (see displayTime), this function is not called.
