Set Toast Appear Length

Is there anyway I can tell a Toast Notification to show up only for a specified amount of time. Generally shorter then a regular toast message.

I found a solution to this by calling toast.cancel() after a certain delay that is shorter than the standard toast duration.

        final Toast toast = Toast.makeText(ctx, "This message will disappear in 1 second", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT);

        Handler handler = new Handler();
            handler.postDelayed(new Runnable() {
               public void run() {
        }, 1000);

Try this

final Toast toast = Toast.makeText(getBaseContext(), "YOUR MESSAGE",Toast.LENGTH_SHORT);
            new CountDownTimer(10000, 1000)
                public void onTick(long millisUntilFinished) {toast.show();}
                public void onFinish() {toast.cancel();}

Hope this help.. Enjoy..!!!

//try it

    public void myToast(String message) {
    LayoutInflater myInflator = getLayoutInflater();
    View myLayout = myInflator.inflate(R.layout.custom_layout,
            (ViewGroup) findViewById(R.id.toastlayout));
    TextView myMessage = (TextView) myLayout.findViewById(R.id.label);
    Toast toast = new Toast(getApplicationContext());
    myMessage.setGravity(Gravity.TOP | Gravity.CENTER_HORIZONTAL
            | Gravity.CENTER_VERTICAL);

    • I don't think this does anything for extending the duration. If the duration is not either LENGTH_SHORT or LENGTH_LONG, it defaults to LENGTH_LONG. This method accepts arbitrary values in nature, but in reality, only changes the behavior (toast length) if the value is not zero.

The stock Android Toast class is coded to accept only a Toast.LENGTH_SHORT or Toast.LENGTH_LONG parameter when calling a Toast. The values of these parameters are 0 and 1 respectively and do not accept any millisecond value when calling setDuration(); If you must show a Toast for a different duration than you may consider using a class from my SuperToasts library. The SuperToast class in the library is a mimic of the stock Android Toast class and can have any millisecond value used as a duration parameter. I do not recommend using this class to show a Toast longer than the maximum stock Android Toast length due to the lingering effect of these Toasts. I recommend that you use the SuperActivityToast class to show Toast messages in an Activity/Fragment because the Toast will be destroyed along with your Activity eliminating any chance of a lingering message. To use this class you may create a new object:

SuperActivityToast superActivityToast = new SuperActivityToast(this);  
// setDuration(); can also accept millisecond values
// superActivityToast.setDuration(1000);  
superActivityToast.setText("Hello world!");  

Or use the static method:

SuperActivityToast.createDarkSuperActivityToast(this, "Hello world!", SuperToast.DURATION_SHORT).show();  

There are tons of customization options you can use with the library as well, check out the Wiki page!

Here is another way to configure the time per your choice:

public void showMsg(String msg, final long duration) {
    final Toast toast = Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(), msg, Toast.LENGTH_LONG);
    Thread t = new Thread() {
        public void run(){
            try {
            } catch (InterruptedException e) {
            finally { }

NOTE: The duration is specified in milliseconds.
