I read a lot of toast in lightning but in standalone app it's not working. In this guide https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.lightning.meta/lightning/events_one.htm

...} else {
    //your toast implementation for a standalone app here

But I never see real working implementation of custom toast.

  • What the documentation says is, the toast works in a lightning component when used in lightning UI or Salesforce1 app. Some scenario like for instance when a component to classic UI via lightning out with Visualforce, the toast notification simply doesn't work. In that case you should have your own notification method like using a apex:pagemessage's or any other way. That being said: what is your main question? – Raul Nov 3 '17 at 10:09
  • My question what right aproach I shouid used for creating own toast. – Taras Oleksiuk Nov 3 '17 at 10:16
  • Its new component or apex:pagemessage or something else, if new component I should insert it into v.body? – Taras Oleksiuk Nov 3 '17 at 10:23
  • Its primarily opinion based on how to display a notification. Probably toast doesn't work on classic UI, would be good to use page message. Writing another component to mimic toast for that scenario would be a lot of work and easiest is with page message. – Raul Nov 3 '17 at 10:28
  • You should check this answer we are using it and it works perfect in our lightning components. – Basti Nov 3 '17 at 10:32

To implementation of custom toast in places where it doesn't work you have to use javascript setTimeout with the combination of div and some CSS.
