Toast for iOS

Version 2.0

Toast is an Objective-C category that adds Android-style toast notifications to the UIView object class. It is intended to be simple, lightweight, and easy to use.

What's New

  • Completely refactored the library to take advantage of modern Objective-C. When the first version of this category was written years ago, blocks didn't exist and dot notation for properties was still controversial. Needless to say, it's been updated.
  • If you're using ARC, you'll need to add the -fno-objc-arc compiler flag to Toast+UIView.m. All preprocessor conditions have been removed.
  • Minimum iOS target is 4.0

Examples

// basic usage
[self.view makeToast:@"This is a piece of toast."];

// toast with duration, title, and position
[self.view makeToast:@"This is a piece of toast with a title." 
             duration:3.0
             position:@"top"
                title:@"Toast Title"];
        
// toast with an image
[self.view makeToast:@"This is a piece of toast with an image." 
            duration:3.0
            position:[NSValue valueWithCGPoint:CGPointMake(110, 110)]
               image:[UIImage imageNamed:@"toast.png"]];
            
// display toast with an activity spinner
[self.view makeToastActivity];

See the demo project for more examples.

Setup Instructions

  1. Add Toast+UIView.h & Toast+UIView.m to your project.
  2. Link against QuartzCore.
  3. If you're using ARC, you'll need to add the -fno-objc-arc compiler flag to Toast+UIView.m.
