Toast schema

Applies to Windows and Windows Phone

Elements used to define a toast notification. They specify the template, images, audio, and text used to compose the toast content, branding specifics, and language information.

These elements and their attributes are manipulated through Document Object Model (DOM) manipulation functions to customize the toast content.

To define the content for a toast, you can use ToastNotificationManager.getTemplateContent to get a toast template that can be modified.

To examine the content of an existing toast, use ToastNotification.content to get the current contents.

The following table lists all of the elements in this schema, sorted alphabetically by name.
