I believe this is HTML5, jQuery Related function
if you want to change the message from server side then you can use AJAX

You might look at toastr.js. It's built atop JQuery, and it's purpose is to creat such notifications.

Hey Suneet,

You don't show popup boxes in PHP - you do that client-side (in the browser) using javascript (probably jQuery).

Basically, the message box is a simple HTML element, such as a DIV, styled to look how you need it using CSS.

You haven't said how you want to activate the message, but a simple one-line of jQuery will give you the general idea:

$('#message').html('This is a message').fadeIn(500).delay(5000).fadeOut(500);

Open in new window


This will take an element with an ID of message, set the text, show it for 5 seconds and then hide it.

Style it with CSS - something along these lines:

#message {
   width: 400px;
   border: 1px solid green;
   position:absolute;
   top: 50px;
   background-color: #D2E9B1;
   display:none;
   padding: 10px;
}

Open in new window


If you need to do this after you've made an AJAX request, simply put the jQuery code in the .done() method.

hi I want to use this popup - when a user adds a new item in the cart. Here page will not be directed to a cart page instead on the same page a box on the upper side will appear which will say - 1 more item has added along with the small added text that will show total number of items in the cart.
This popup will hide automatically after a few seconds, allowing the user to add more item into the cart or check out.

Hey Suneet - I've already answered how to do it.

I assuming you add to your cart with an AJAX call. In the script that you call, you'll need PHP to output the information you want in the message (1 more item added and total number of items in the cart). You then need to put the code I posted into the success() or done() function of the AJAX call.

If you want to post your PHP script that adds to the cart and the jQuery code for adding to a cart, then I can take another look.
