    Hi Bhagat,

    I don't think we can avoid this scroll bar if we do not have sufficient width for the message.

    Unfortunately, we don't have message wrapping functionality in message manager.

    I suggest you 2 options

    • You can split the message into multiple lines and report them collectively as you do for other messages
    • You can go for displaying messages in Menu, please refer the below document

    Display messages in menu - Web dynpro ABAP

    Hope this helps you.

    • Hi Bhagat,

      What ever you have done looks good. but we cannot avaoid icon display in message manager.

      I would like to suggest you a work around solution to your problem. i.e. Do not report your messages in message manager but you prepare a table with messages you require and display

      Please follow below steps:

      • Create a context node MSG with attribute ICON & MESSAGE both of type string as show below

      • Create a table ui element binding to the context node MSG.Choose IMAGE as editor for column ICON & TEXT_VIEW for MESSAGE
      • Set the table ui properties as below

      • Prepare the messages and bind it to the context node MSG as below

      DATA lo_nd_msg TYPE REF TO if_wd_context_node.
      DATA lt_msg TYPE wd_this->elements_msg.
      DATA ls_msg LIKE LINE OF lt_msg.

      * navigate from <CONTEXT> to <MSG> via lead selection
      lo_nd_msg = wd_context->get_child_node( name = wd_this->wdctx_msg ).

      "Prepare message
      REFRESH lt_msg.

      CLEAR ls_msg.
      ls_msg-icon = '~Icon/ErrorMessage'.
      ls_msg-message = 'PleaseEnter RO No in valid format'.
      APPEND ls_msg TO lt_msg.
      CLEAR ls_msg.
      ls_msg-message = 'or enter LPNo For Check In'.
      APPEND ls_msg TO lt_msg.
      CLEAR ls_msg.
      ls_msg-message = 'or Enter rdtst for Test'.
      APPEND ls_msg TO lt_msg.

      CLEAR ls_msg.
      ls_msg-icon = '~Icon/ErrorMessage'.
      ls_msg-message = 'Message2 -'.

      APPEND ls_msg TO lt_msg.

      new_items = lt_msg
      set_initial_elements = abap_true ).

      • Here is the out put 😊

      Note: Hide the table ui element if no messages available. ie. bind the visible property to a context attribute and set the attribute value as required 😊

      Hope this helps you.
