Used to show feedback after an activity. The difference with Notification is that the latter is often used to show a system level passive notification.

Basic usage

Displays at the top, and disappears after 3 seconds.


Used to show the feedback of Success, Warning, Message and Error activities.

Plain 2.6.3

Set plain to have a plain background.


A close button can be added.

Centered text

Use the center attribute to center the text.

Use HTML string

message supports HTML string.


Although message property supports HTML strings, dynamically rendering arbitrary HTML on your website can be very dangerous because it can easily lead to XSS attacks. So when dangerouslyUseHTMLString is on, please make sure the content of message is trusted, and never assign message to user-provided content.


merge messages with the same content.

Global method

Element Plus has added a global method $message for app.config.globalProperties. So in a vue instance you can call Message like what we did in this page.

Local import

import { ElMessage } from 'element-plus'

In this case you should call ElMessage(options). We have also registered methods for different types, e.g. ElMessage.success(options). You can call ElMessage.closeAll() to manually close all the instances.

App context inheritance 2.0.3

Now message accepts a context as second parameter of the message constructor which allows you to inject current app's context to message which allows you to inherit all the properties of the app.

You can use it like this:


If you globally registered ElMessage component, it will automatically inherit your app context.

import { getCurrentInstance } from 'vue'
import { ElMessage } from 'element-plus'

// in your setup method
const { appContext } = getCurrentInstance()!
ElMessage({}, appContext)
