Toast Notifications UI Design | HTML & CSS

Toast notifications or toast messages are little boxes that pop up on the side of the screen, display some message and disappear on their own or a button click. Toast notifications are very common. These can be used to inform the user about the completion of a task, an error that occurred during the task or to give the user some sort of feedback. 

Toast notifications usually disappear in 4-5 seconds on their own. In some cases where the notifications are provided with a close button, the user can choose to make them go away by clicking on the close button.

Examples where a toast notification can be used:

  1. When you are downloading some files in the background, you receive a toast message saying, “The files are downloaded successfully”.
  2. While sending a message you receive error feedback, “Message not send due to technical issues”.
  3. When a service you are using is about to expire, you get a warning message, “2 days left for your subscription to expire. Renew now”.

Now that you know what toast notifications are, let us get started and create some toast UI design.
