    How To Use Ignite UI for Web Components Toast Notification

    First, you need to install the Ignite UI for Web Components by running the following command:

    npm install igniteui-webcomponents
    import { defineComponents, IgcToastComponent } from 'igniteui-webcomponents';

    For a complete introduction to the Ignite UI for Web Components, read the Getting Started topic.

    The simplest way to display the toast component is to use its show method and call it on a button click.

    <igc-button onclick="toast.show()" variant="contained">Show Toast</igc-button>
    <igc-toast id="toast">Toast Message</igc-toast>



    Use the displayTime property to configure how long the toast component is visible. By default, it's set to 4000 milliseconds.

    By default, the toast component is hidden automatically after a period specified by the displayTime. You can use keepOpen property to change this behavior. In this way, the toast will remain visible.

    <igc-button onclick="toast.toggle()" variant="contained">Toggle Toast</igc-button>
    <igc-button onclick="toast.keepOpen = !toast.keepOpen" variant="contained">Toggle keepOpen property</igc-button>
    <igc-button onclick="toast.displayTime = 8000" variant="contained">Set DisplayTime to 8000</igc-button>
    <igc-toast id="toast">Toast Message</igc-toast>


    You can style the Web Components IgcToastComponent notifications directly using its tag selector:

    igc-toast {
        background: #011627;
        color: #ECAA53;
