Toast in android using xamarin forms

 

When we want to let user know that something happening we can use Toast.

Let’s see how to create Toast in in Android in Xamarin Forms

Create xamrin foms application with Android project

project

  • In .net standard project add a Interface
public interface IToastMessageService
{
void ShowToastMessage(string message);
}

  • In Android project add ToastMessageService and implement the IToastMessageService
[assembly: Xamarin.Forms.Dependency(typeof(ToastMessageService))]
namespace ToastTestXamarin.Droid
{
public class ToastMessageService : IToastMessageService
{
public void ShowToastMessage(string message)
{
Toast.MakeText(Android.App.Application.Context, message, ToastLength.Long).Show();
}
}
}

  • In MainPage.xaml add a button
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<ContentPage xmlns="http://xamarin.com/schemas/2014/forms"
xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2009/xaml"
xmlns:local="clr-namespace:ToastTestXamarin"
x:Class="ToastTestXamarin.MainPage">
<Button x:Name="BtnToastMessage" Text="Show Toast" Clicked="ShowToast"></Button>
</ContentPage>
