The following example shows how to create and send a toast notification that includes text and images, including use of the Show method.

var notifications = Windows.UI.Notifications;

// Get the toast notification manager for the current app.
var notificationManager = notifications.ToastNotificationManager;

// The getTemplateContent method returns a Windows.Data.Xml.Dom.XmlDocument object
// that contains the toast notification XML content.
var template = notifications.toastTemplateType.toastImageAndText01;
var toastXml = notificationManager.getTemplateContent(notifications.ToastTemplateType[template]);

// You can use the methods from the XML document to specify the required elements for the toast.
var images = toastXml.getElementsByTagName("image");
images[0].setAttribute("src", "images/toastImageAndText.png");

var textNodes = toastXml.getElementsByTagName("text");
textNodes.forEach(function (value, index) {
    var textNumber = index + 1;
    var text = "";
    for (var j = 0; j < 10; j++) {
        text += "Text input " + /*@static_cast(String)*/textNumber + " ";

// Create a toast notification from the XML, then create a ToastNotifier object
// to send the toast.
var toast = new notifications.ToastNotification(toastXml);
