Materialize provides an easy way for you to send unobtrusive alerts to your users through toasts. These toasts are also placed and sized responsively, try it out by clicking the button below on different device sizes.

<a class="btn waves-effect waves-light default" onclick="displayBasicToast()">Toast!</a>
function displayBasicToast()
    Materialize.toast('I am a toast!', 4000); // 4000 is the duration of the toast

Custom HTML

You can pass in an HTML String as the first argument as well. Take a look at the example below, where we pass in text as well as a flat button. If you call an external function instead of in-line JavaScript, you will not need to escape quotation marks.

Toast with Action
<a class="waves-effect waves-light btn default" onclick="displayCustomHTMLToast()">Toast with Action</a>
function displayCustomHTMLToast()
    var $toastContent = $('<span>I am toast content</span>');
    Materialize.toast($toastContent, 5000);

Callback Toast

You can have the toast callback a function when it has been dismissed

Toast with Callback
<a class="waves-effect waves-light btn default" onclick="Materialize.toast('I am a toast', 4000,'',function(){alert('Your toast was dismissed')})">Toast with Callback</a>

Styling Toast

We've added the ability to customize your toasts easily. You can pass in classes as an optional parameter into the toast function. We've added a rounded class for you, but you can create your own CSS classes and apply them to toasts. Checkout out our full example below.

Round Toast!
<a class="waves-effect waves-light btn default" onclick="Materialize.toast('I am a toast!', 3000, 'rounded')">Round Toast!</a>
