The title pretty much sums it all.

Is there any "object" in monogame for windows phone 8 (for monogame to be exact), that is similar to Toast in Android?

My purpose is to give a notification / hint at what user do, until certain period / until next user input.

For example: If the player tapped "attack", then there is text shown "Select your target" in either top or bottom screen. Just like Toast in android.

Note 1 : I can do it manually, but i'm just curious. If I can use a pre-made function (such as Toast) it'll be simpler to implement, rather than making it myself.

Note 2 : Mine is a turn based tactic game (such as FF Tactic)

Thank you.

Windows Phone has integrated functionality for displaying toast notifications: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windowsphone/develop/jj662938(v=vs.105).aspx

But I don't think it's what you are looking for, since they always appear in the top part of the screen and are meant for showing notifications when the app isn't active.
