System UI

Display system notifications, such as dialog boxes, prompts, and toasts, and create custom menus.

In addition to Cascades controls and elements, there are a few system classes that you can use to provide additional information to your users. You can display dialog boxes with a list of choices, prompts that ask for information, and toasts that simply alert users that an event occurred. You can also create custom menus that have the same item selection behavior as built-in menus, but with an appearance that you define yourself.
