Lightning Web Component(LWC) Toast Messages

A component can send a toast notification that pops up to alert users of a success, error, or warning. A toast can also simply provide information. To display a toast notification in Lightning Experience or Lightning communities, import ShowToastEvent from the lightning/platformShowToastEvent module. Here is the example to show Lightning Web Component(LWC) Toast Messages.

Toast Event Properties:

Parameter Type Description
title String (Required) The title of the toast, displayed as a heading.
message String (Required) A string representing the body of the message. It can contain placeholders in the form of {0} ... {N}. The placeholders are replaced with the links on messageData.
messageData String[] or Object url and label values that replace the {index} placeholders in the message string.
variant String Changes the appearance of the notice. Toasts inherit styling from toasts in the Lightning Design System. Valid values are: info (default), success, warning, and error.
mode String Determines how persistent the toast is. Valid values are: dismissable (default), remains visible until you click the close button or 3 seconds has elapsed, whichever comes first; pester, remains visible for 3 seconds and disappears automatically. No close button is provided; sticky, remains visible until you click the close button.

    <lightning-button label="Warning" onclick={showWarning}></lightning-button>&nbsp;

import { LightningElement } from 'lwc';
import { ShowToastEvent } from 'lightning/platformShowToastEvent';
export default class LWCToastMessages extends LightningElement {

    showError() {
        const evt = new ShowToastEvent({
            title: 'Error',
            message: 'This is an error message',
            variant: 'error',
            mode: 'dismissable'

        const evt = new ShowToastEvent({
            title: 'Success',
            message: 'This is a success message',
            variant: 'success',
            mode: 'dismissable'

        const evt = new ShowToastEvent({
            title: 'Warning',
            message: 'This is a warning message',
            variant: 'warning',
            mode: 'dismissable'

    showInfo() {
        const evt = new ShowToastEvent({
            title: 'Info',
            message: 'This is an information message',
            variant: 'info',

    Hi Biswajeet, These toast messages are not being displayed in community. I have created LWC component & trying to display toast messages for any error. However these toast messages work on the normal record page but don’t work in community. Can you share some insights on this if you have any idea. Thanks
