    Brilliant post. Thanks for taking the time to share. 

    It would be great to have this level of functionality and message customisation baked into PDQ.

    One question. How can I put an expiry timer on the message and upon expiration choose a exitcode? I looked on Trevor's blog and whilst I found references to the timer in the code, I wasn't sure where the put the timeout values and how to handle the action upon expiration.

    Actually I've moved away from the solution I posted about, and switched to this:

    Hi Sam, could you go into a little further detail on how you use the Toast Notification Script in your deployments? It looks pretty handy. I wish PDQ had something like this built in.
