## 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, so that MessageService is in global scope and accessible across components of an application.

MessageService is an API Service for

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:      [ AppRoutingModule,BrowserModule,BrowserAnimationsModule, ToastModule,ButtonModule],
  declarations: [ AppComponent],
  bootstrap:    [ AppComponent ],
export class AppModule { }

We can remove the toast using programmatically

In html template components

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

in typescript code, call clearn method of MessageService


customize styles

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

  • ui-toast-message - This overrides the message content styles
  • ui-toast-detail - This overrides message detail styles The below css styles is to change font-family and color of the toast message content
.newfont-styles .ui-toast-message {
font-family: 'proxima nova';

    display: flex;

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

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

HTML content

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

  constructor(private messageService: MessageService) {}

  ngOnInit() {}

<p-toast position="top-center">
	<ng-template let-message pTemplate="message">
		<div innerHtml="{{htmlContent}}">
<button type="button" pButton (click)="showHtmlContent()" label="Toast html content Example" class="ui-button-success"></button>

Angular primeng toast html content example

delete confirm toast popup window

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

IN the below example talks how to show confirm windows to ask for user yes or no based on user pinterest_domain_verification

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

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

onYes() {
// call  delete Service API to record from database
onNo() {
<p-toast position="center" key="r" (onClose)="onNo()" [modal]="true" [baseZIndex]="1000">
    <ng-template let-content pTemplate="content">
        <div style="text-align: center">
        <div class="ui-g ui-fluid">
            <div class="ui-g-6">
                <button type="button" pButton (click)="onYes()" label="Yes" class="ui-button"></button>
            <div class="ui-g-6">
                <button type="button" pButton (click)="onNo()" label="No" class="ui-button"></button>
