SystemToast predefined timeout period

Hello,

 

I'm wondering if anyone knows if it's possible to set the timeout period for a systemToast? At the below link, it mentions a "predefined timeout period"...Is it possible to set this period?

 

https://developer.blackberry.com/cascades/reference/bb__system__systemtoast.html

(The toast will be dismissed after a predefined timeout period lapses....)

 

Thanks

Jason

Re: SystemToast predefined timeout period

There is currently no way to set the timeout period of a SystemToast.  If this is a feature you would like to see I suggest heading to https://www.blackberry.com/jira and creating a feature request that I can escalate for you.

Thanks for the reply and suggestion. Personally, it's not a big deal for me but I was looking into it for a game I'm creating so it was more of a "just curious" type of question.

Thanks

Re: SystemToast predefined timeout period

Only suggestion is that the documentation should state how to show a button, which is to get handle and then enable it. Kind of obtuse. Perhaps a better way would be to have a method setButtonEnabled(bool). Just my two cents

Re: SystemToast predefined timeout period

The predefined time is 3 seconds I think, but keep in mind that if you want a shorter timeout, you can always cancel the toast programmatically before those 3 seconds as a workaround...
