Today we’ve released new version of DotNetBar with brand new Toast Notification component. Toast notifications are messages that appears on the surface of the specified parent control for a short period of time. They do not receive focus (or pause the current activity), so they cannot accept any user input. They are ideal for status update type of the message. Here is an example of two toast notifications in different color schemes:

And here is how toast notification appears when used in an app:

Toast notifications are really simple to use and single line of code is used to display them, for example:

        ToastNotification.Show(this, "Establishing connection...")

We have also added very simple Line control. While drawing lines is easy, sometimes its much more convenient to have control which draws a line. This control is for those times.

There are more than 70 new features and fixes in this release. Here are detailed Release Notes.

Do not forget that our online Knowledge Base is getting updated constantly and is great source of information and tips on DotNetBar usage. If you have current DotNetBar license download latest release on Customer Only web site. Fully functional trial version is also available. Thank you so much for using our controls.
