Primeng Toast UI component

Toast in an application is a popup window on the main DOM page.

In An application, Toast UI is shown to the user for the following use case

  • Authentication successful
  • Give useful messages for Server validation errors - Duplicate records,
  • Domain operation results message like the record is deleted from a database.- Confirm the popup window to delete the record

Primeng provides a lot of useful UI components in Angular. Toast is one of the components that is used to display interactive messages in the overlay.

These tutorials cover Primeng Angular popup example but have not covered how to create an angular application.

install Primeng dependencies

Once your angular application is ready to work on, Please install npm dependencies

Primeng has the following dependencies to integrate into an angular application

Primeng npm module contains actual UI components, themes primeicons npm module provides all the icons for primeng UI library

Installation can be done in one of two always. One way is to install required dependencies npm install primeng command,

This will create required dependencies in the node_modules folder and also add entries in package.json

npm install --save primeng
npm install --save primeicons

And Another way is to provide dependencies in package.json

"primeicons": "^2.0.0",
"primeng": "9.0.6",

Please issue npm install in the application root directory.

Once dependencies are installed, Next is to add Primeng CSS styles to your application

update styles to angular.json

There is an angular.json file located in the root directory of the angular application.

Angular.json has required configuration information related to styles, scripts, and required module configuration for lint, build and production builds.

Once you installed dependencies, primeng CSS files are located in β€œ./node_modules/primeng/” for primeng and β€œ./node_modules/primeicons” for primeicons.

styles in angular.json provide global access to primeng styles to all your components in the angular application.

here configured primeicons.css for primeng fonts, luna-blue is the primeng theme and primeng.min.css for required CSS styles for components.

"styles": [

import ToastModule into angular NgModule

If you want to access internal or external components, You need to import the module into your application module. Primeng provides toast components in ToastModule.

And also includes MessageService in the provider section of the application module.

MessageService is in the global scope and accessible across components of an application.

MessageService is an API Service for displaying toast messages.

import { NgModule } from "@angular/core";
import { BrowserModule } from "@angular/platform-browser";

import { AppComponent } from "./app.component";
import { ToastModule, MessageService, ButtonModule } from "primeng";
import { BrowserAnimationsModule } from "@angular/platform-browser/animations";
import { AppRoutingModule } from "./app.routing.module";

  imports: [
  declarations: [AppComponent],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent],
  providers: [MessageService],
export class AppModule {}

p-toast button click examples

Create a basic component

In the template component, place the p-toast component inside it Html template component

<p>Basic toast example</p>


  label="Simple Toast Example"

Typescript code:

import { Component, OnInit } from '@angular/core';
import { MessageService } from 'primeng';

  selector: 'app-basic-toast',
  templateUrl: './basic-toast.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./basic-toast.component.css']
export class BasicToastComponent implements OnInit {

      constructor(private messageService: MessageService) {}
    showMessage() {
        this.messageService.add({severity:'info', summary: 'Record is added successully', detail:'record added'});
  ngOnInit() {


Adding an object to messageService, Object content three fields

Severity of toast message type, the Following severity types are supported.

  • success: successful message type like record added
  • info like loading a few more records
  • warn as duplicate records exist
  • error like a server error
  • `custom-like custom error

A summary is the title of the toast message for Popup and the detail is the subtitle of the toast popup

Angular primeng toast example

Change toast position in Angular position

By default, the toast popup is shown in the top-right position.

It can be controlled using the position attribute.

position possible values are

  • top-left
  • top-center
  • center
  • bottom-center
  • bottom-left
  • bottom-right

Created ToastPositionComponent for showing an error popup in the top center ToastPositionComponent.ts:

import { Component, OnInit } from '@angular/core';
import { MessageService } from 'primeng';

  selector: 'app-toast-position',
  templateUrl: './toast-position.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./toast-position.component.css']
export class ToastPositionComponent implements OnInit {

       constructor(private messageService: MessageService) {}
    showError() {
        this.messageService.add({severity:'error', summary: 'Server error', detail:'500 error'});
  ngOnInit() {

In the Html template, the position attribute is added

<p>toast position example</p>

<p-toast position="top-center"></p-toast>

  label=" Toast position Example"

manually remove toast clear method

By default popup shows for some time,

We can remove the toast using programmatically using the clear method.

In HTML template components

<button type="button" pButton (click)="remove()" label="Remove"></button>

in typescript code, call the clean method of MessageService


customize styles

toast CSS can be customized by using the default CSS selector as well as a custom selector default, CSS selector,

  • ui-toast: It is a popup window styles
  • ui-toast-message : This overrides the message content styles
  • ui-toast-detail : This overrides message detail styles

The below CSS style is to change the font family and color of the toast message content.

.newfont-styles .ui-toast-message {
  font-family: "proxima nova";
  color: "red";

To change the width of the toast popup

:host ::ng-deep .newfont-styles .ui-toast {
  display: flex;
  width: 70%;

Add CSS selector using class attribute to p-toast component.

<p-toast class="newfont-styles"></p-toast>

HTML content

The below example illustrates about following things.

  • Created ToastHtmlComponent
  • In the component, toast content contains html content, not text htmlContent
  • using ng-template inside p-toast component
  • add innerHtml to div tag inside ng-templates
import { Component, OnInit } from "@angular/core";
import { MessageService } from "primeng";

  selector: "app-toast-html",
  templateUrl: "./toast-html.component.html",
  styleUrls: ["./toast-html.component.css"]
export class ToastHtmlComponent implements OnInit {
  htmlContent: string = "";

  showHtmlContent(description) {
    this.htmlContent = "<h1>Heading 1<h1>\n<h2>Heading 2<h2>";
      severity: "info",
      summary: "Summary content",
      detail: ""

  constructor(private messageService: MessageService) {}

  ngOnInit() {}

And html component:

<p>HTML content toast example</p>
<p-toast position="top-center">
  <ng-template let-message pTemplate="message">
    <div innerHtml="{{htmlContent}}"></div>
  label="Toast html content Example"

And the output is

delete confirm toast popup window in Angular

Sometimes, we have a data table in an application, the user needs to notify the message during successful CRUD operations,

The below example talks about how to show confirm windows to ask for the user yes or no based on user input.

For example, In the table of records, you will ask to confirm a window to delete a record.

Confirm window will be shown to the user, if the user click yes, the popup disappears and calls API for deleting records from a Database, if the user clicks no, the popup closes do nothing.

onYes() {
// call  delete Service API to record from the database
onNo() {
  <ng-template let-content pTemplate="content">
    <div style="text-align: center">
    <div class="ui-g ui-fluid">
      <div class="ui-g-6">
      <div class="ui-g-6">

Angular primeng toast errors

The below section talks about various errors that used to occur during primeng toast usage

p-toast is not a known element

It is a common error that happens for every developer during angular coding.

The p-toast component element is used in the HTML template, but the element is not able to recognize.

The fix for the issue is

  • Please make sure that primeng is installed correctly, Check package.json has required primeng dependencies and the node_modules folder contains primeng dependencies

  • import ToastModule into your angular module so that all components in the modules are available in your component


import { ToastModule, MessageService, ButtonModule } from "primeng";
  imports: [ToastModule],
  declarations: [AppComponent],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent],
  providers: [MessageService],
export class AppModule {}
