Toasts are as flexible as you need and have very little required markup. At a minimum, we require a single element to contain your “toasted” content and strongly encourage a dismiss button.

ToastLive example

Click the button the below to show as toast (positioning with our utilities in the lower right corner) that has been hidden by default with .hide.


Toasts are slightly translucent, too, so they blend over whatever they might appear over.


You can stack toasts by wrapping them in a toast container, which will vertically add some spacing.

ToastCustom content

Customize your toasts by removing sub-components, tweaking with utilities, or adding your own markup. Here we’ve created a simpler toast by removing the default .toast-header, adding a custom hide icon from CoreUI Icons, and using some flexbox utilities to adjust the layout.

Alternatively, you can also add additional controls and components to toasts.

ToastColor schemes

Building on the above example, you can create different toast color schemes with our color and background utilities. Here we’ve added .bg-primary and .text-white to the .toast, and then added .btn-close-white to our close button. For a crisp edge, we remove the default border with .border-0.
