How to Add the Desktop Alert Control to Windows Foms

  1. To add the Desktop Alert to Windows Forms, we need to create a Window Form project first
  2. Open the default form designer in your Windows Forms template project
  3. Open the Toolbox, access the KetticDeskTopAlert Control, drag and drop the control to the Forms
  4. Create a new Windows Forms application in Visual Studio and open the designer of the default form.
  5. Then, the Control will be displayed on the Form designer and developers can customize it as necessary through the grid property of Visual Studio.
  6. To add an alert window to the form, add a button to the form and create a handler for the button Click event. Copy and paste the following C# code snippet to the event handler,

void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
this.desktopAlert1.CaptionText = "A New Message";
this.desktopAlert1.ContentText = "Hello, how are you today";
The Windows Forms Desktop Alert component allows the desktop alert appearing for five seconds by default. If developers do not want to customize the displaying time of desktop alert, they can change the value of the property named AutoClose as AutoClosePostpone.
