Notifications are non-intrusive messages that inform the user whether an action was completed or aborted successfully. Typically they confirm something. Notifications look like Post-IT notes. They go away automatically and don't require user action. Use notifications to confirm what the user did and provide them with confidence and assurance.

To show notifications, inject the 

$webResourceManager.requireResource("info.magnolia.sys.confluence.artifact-info-plugin:javadoc-resource-macro-resources") UiContext
 interface to your class. The UiContext is implemented by AppContext, SubAppContext and Shell, so if you have one of those at hand, just reuse them.

Usage examples: 

public MyCustomClass(UiContext uiContext) {
	this.uiContext = uiContext;
// Send an INFO notification to the current user.
private openInfoNotification(String message) {
	uiContext.openNotification(MessageStyleTypeEnum.INFO, true, message);
// Send an ERROR notification to the current user.
private openErrorNotification(String message) {
	uiContext.openNotification(MessageStyleTypeEnum.ERROR, true, message);
