The infobar is a type of toolbar that appears above a list or panel, and shows filter or selection settings:
- Filter criteria: The infobar indicates the filter criteria that have been applied for a filter, for example on a table or list. Do not show the infobar if no filter is applied.
- Selected items: In a multi-select dialog, the infobar shows the number of selected items.
The bar has the same height, text size, and icon size in both cozy and compact formats. The text inside the bar will be truncated if there’s not enough space.
The infobar is shown in the following situations:
- After a general filter has been applied
- After the user has selected multiple items in a select dialog
All applied filters are shown as labels in the infobar.

The infobar is a toolbar that consists of a label on the left side and an icon on the right side.
The label shows the filter criteria, and the icon selected depends on the use case.

Behavior and Interaction
The bar can have two active areas: either the entire bar can be active, or if an icon is added, it creates a second active area. We recommend that you use the active behavior for the bar and the icon.
When the user clicks the bar, the filter dialog from the view settings dialog is shown. If only one filter is applied, the filter can be changed directly in the detailed filter selection. If more than one filter is applied, the filter dialog shows a list with general filter categories.
Cancel: The user clicks the icon to delete the current filter settings. We recommend using the cancel icon.
The infobar has two states – active and non-active (non-clickable). If set to non-active, the whole bar turns gray and the user cannot interact with it.

Infobar - Non-active state
The infobar is not a separate control. If you want to build an infobar, you need to use the sap.m.Toolbar control. To achieve the infobar design, set the
design property of the toolbar to “info”.
