Toast++ v1.0

June 3, 2017

Just to let everyone know that v1.0 of Toast++ has been released. Toast++ is a set of C++ classes to provide an encapsulation for Toast Notifications for Desktop Win32 applications.

These are the popups you see from Windows normally in the bottom right of the screen which accumulate into Action Center. These toast notification APIs are exposed as Windows Runtime interfaces but can be used from standard Desktop Win32 applications with some work. The Toast++ classes ease this integration process.

The classes provided are: ToastPP::CManager and ToastPP::CToast.

CManager provides a class based encapsulation of an IToastNotifier Windows Runtime interface as well as helper functionality for integrating Win32 applications with Toast Notifications.

CToast provides a class based encapsulation of an IToastNotification Windows Runtime interface as well as support for callback notification through this interface. It also provides a method to setup the toast UI via an XML string parameter.

An example of the demo app running along with a couple of popped toasts is shown below:
