CharmNotification is a component that allows you to create customized notifications that slide from the right to the left side of the bottom-right side of the screen.
Thanks to this component, you'll be able to customize the colors, icon, etc. of your notification or you can simply create new ones at Run-Time (as presented above).
While coding or reading books, notifications like this (updates) appear in an attractive way with a cute tone, so I asked myself:
- Why don't I create a free component that does the same thing?
This component contains several properties, here I present them all and their functionalities:
BackColor1: The color of the left side of the notification
BackColor2: The color of the right side of the notification
Title: The title of the notification
Text: The text of the notification
TitleForeColor: The color of title of the notification
TextForeColor: The color of title of the notification
Icon: The icon the notification
Duration: The duration of the notification (1000 = 1 second)
PlayTone: The notification will play a tone if this bool will be set true
Using the Code
CharmNotification usage is made to be as easy as possible, however, you can manipulate it with codes or using the designer.
To fulfill the task and release your advanced notification, you can go through one of the two possible methodologies.
- Drag and drop the component on the form.
- Edit the properties:
- Write this piece of code:
To create a customized notification, you can write this piece of code:
Notification n = new Notification();
n.Title = "Windows update";
n.Text = "Windows started updating, please do not turn off you computer.";
n.Duration = 3000;
n.Icon = Properties.Resources.windows_32;
n.BackColor2 = Color.FromArgb(35,35,35);
n.BackColor1 = Color.FromArgb(28, 28, 28);
n.TitleForeColor = Color.WhiteSmoke;
n.TextForeColor = Color.WhiteSmoke;
That's all of it, folks!
