That's a perfect and modern project/DLL, really good work.

I wanna suggest to add an option to set how many seconds we want the notification to stay visible before get hide in notifications bar

e.g: //noop $mToast.ShowToast(TEST,test message,$mircdirmain.ico,60)

60 = Will determine that how many seconds will the notification box will stay active before goes in notifications bar.

- Thanks!

You can't set a discrete value for duration, it's limited to short|long (7 or 25 seconds respectively).

By using ShowToastXml this (and all other) elements can already be set. I'll expose 'duration' and 'scenario' to ShowToastJson, but since neither of these are recommended for use (ref) and to keep ShowToast simple, if you want to use any custom attributes use ShowToastXml or ShowToastJson.

All is fine, but I can't call the callbacks when I'm using ShowToastXml.

When I use:

/dll mToast.dll SetOnCompleteCallback mToast.callback

then using ShowToastXml the callback returns: tag string, where string is TimedOut (when is clicked every button from the toast or single/double/right clicked) or UserCanceled (when is clicked the close button from the Toast).

I tried to use any forms of callback=mToast.callback in XML as given in your examples from the script file, but nothing works, excepts TimedOut or UserCanceled.

Please, can you provide pass-by-pass how to use XML through your DLL and to retrieve the callbacks for every action made in the toast (for example, to tell the mirc that the first button is clicked or the second button etc.)

P.S. No problems are met when I created the toasts using xml configuration. The problems are in the callbacks that can't return the values from arguments=
