Make your Toast more attractive

You can implement custom toast in two ways:

Method 1 : create your own toast layout without external resources

Method 2 : You can use external libraries to make custom toast

First will implement Custom Toast using method 1

Steps:

Step 1: create drawable file for background

Step 2: create custom layout

Step 3: inflate the layout into view and set into toast object

Next will implement Custom Toast using method 2

There are many external libraries to implement custom toast
but in this post we will use Toasty library. In this library there are 5 types of custom toast:
success , error , info , warning and normal

Steps:

Step 1: Add this in your root build.gradle file (not your module build.gradle file):

allprojects {
repositories {

maven { url “https://jitpack.io" }
}
}

Step 2: Add this to your module’s build.gradle file (make sure the version matches the JitPack badge above):

dependencies {
...
implementation 'com.github.GrenderG:Toasty:1.5.0'
}

Step 3: Go to java file and show the toast as below

Toasty.success(getApplicationContext(),"This is success toast",Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();// or Toasty.error(getApplicationContext(),"This is error toast",Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();

Result:
