  • Patent number: 11150966
    Abstract: Toast notifications can be managed via a toast adapter and plugins. A toast adapter can function as an intermediary between a service and an application that interfaces with the Windows toast framework. The service can employ plugins that are configured to send toast requests to the toast adapter. The toast requests can include metadata from which the toast adapter can construct toast content. The toast adapter can then interface with the application to submit the toast content to the Windows toast framework to cause the toast notifications to be displayed. When a user interacts with a toast notification, the arguments that the Windows toast framework provides can be relayed by the application to the toast adapter. The toast adapter may then identify which plugin was the source of the toast notification and provide an indication of the user's interaction with the toast notification to the plugin.
