A Component can send a toast notification that pops up to alert users of success, error, or warning. A Toast can also simply provide information. You can style toast and can configure the visibility of the toast. It can remain visible for three seconds until the user clicks to dismiss it, or a combination of both. To display a toast notification in lightning experience or lightning communities, import showToastEvent from the lightning/platformShowToastEvent module.
