The following snippet shows you the usage of our notice class in a basic admin action your plugin might implement:

    if ( class_exists( 'GPDFAPI' ) ) {
        /* Get Gravity PDF notice class */
        $notice = GPDFAPI::get_notice_class();

        /* Listen for one of your plugin's actions and verify the current user can perform it */
        if ( isset( $_POST['prefix_plugin_action'] ) ) {

            /* Verify the current user has the correct capabilities to run the action */
            if ( ! current_user_can( 'activate_plugins' ) ) {
                $notice->add_error( __( 'Access denied', 'prefix-text-domain' ) );

            /* Check the nonce to prevent XSS attacks */
            if ( ! wp_verify_nonce( $_POST['prefix_plugin_action'], 'prefix_plugin_action' ) ) {
                $notice->add_error( __( 'There was a problem processing the action.', 'prefix-text-domain' ) );

            /* User passed all authentication checks so lets process the action */
            // Include any action code here

            /* Action was successful so lets tell the user */
            $notice->add_notice( __( 'Action successful.', 'prefix-text-domain' ) );

} );
