Use the message view if:
Responsiveness and Adaptiveness
Size S (Smartphone)
The responsiveness of the message view is determined by the container in which it is embedded.
To display messages as popovers on desktop devices, or in full-screen mode on smartphones, we recommend that you use sap.m.ResponsivePopover as a container.
The filter bar displays all the types of messages typically contained within the message popover.
Users can filter messages by type (error, warning, success and information) with the segmented buttons on top of the message view.
The short description comprises a simple and helpful text.
The subtitle comprises a description that helps users to identify the object they are looking for.
Navigation to Second Page
If there is a long text, the message popover automatically provides a “chevron” on the right side so that the user is able to navigate to the second page of the message view, where he or she can read the long text of the message.
If desired, the app development team can aggregate messages by filling out the counter property of each list item. Note that the app team must implement this aggregation on their own as the message popover only provides the counter property.

Handling of Transient Messages
The message view also handles transient messages and is available within a dialog. Possessing the same interaction patterns as the message popover, this control helps the app development team to display messages more easily and consistently.
We recommend that messages no longer be displayed after the user closes the dialog (sap.m.MessageBox/sap.m.Dialog).

Handling Application-Specific Messages
The message view can be embedded in an sap.m.ResponsivePopover: for example, if you want to display multiple messages by clicking a button.
Due to the full-screen behavior on smartphones (size S), we recommend that you use the sap.m.ResponsivePopover as a container.
