The DesktopAlert control for WPF displays a small pop-up window in the application to notify the user that a specific event has occurred.
You can position the DesktopAlert pop-up in a variety of positions on the screen to best fit your application scenario or preference. You can choose from six possible positions: top-left, top-center, top-right, bottom-left, bottom-center and bottom-right. In addition, the API allows defining on which monitor the alert should be shown — the main display or the current one.
You can apply a series of effects to the pop-up alert for a better user experience. RadDesktopAlert can be shown using fade-in and fade-out animations. The pop-up behavior is customizable through a selection of properties defining the direction (up, down, left or right) and pop-up animation length.
In addition to customizable content, position and animations, RadDesktopAlert provides yet another option for customization. The control comes with more than 15 predefined themes to use for easy personalization and a professional look and feel.
The content in the alert is fully customizable. It supports images, icons and HTML-like text rendering in the alert caption and content.
