Native Toast Support Windows 8

Nov 26, 2013 at 2:59 PM
Is it possible to add Native Toast Support (http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/windowsdesktop/sending-toast-notifications-71e230a2/) to embrace the Modern UI a little more.

I've mimicked the style a little to get a similar feel but bringing it the way it's supposed will also add support to view withing Windows 8 Start and "Apps" which now don't support the Toastify Popup.!

I've modded my toastify to look windows8 -ish.. if you have the source code it's not that hard:

No, I can send a modded version to people who request it though.

Actually, since ive gotten this requested twice already, i might make a tutorial

I don't mind if you send me a modded version. However a tutorial would probably be very helpful as I can't find a tutorial to get the album artwork working anywhere and that is the one thing that I really want and I'm sure many others do as well.

The tutorial is already up in the discussions.

where?? because I can't seem to find it. The windows 8 style looks really cool though so I would also love to have that

The default toast now looks more like Spotify's redesign. I haven't implemented Windows 8 toasts since that would mean forking the code specifically for Windows 7 and we still have plenty of pre-Windows 8 users. If there is a lot of demand for this feature then we can revisit.

Thanks!
