SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Is it possible to edit the default message "There are no items to show in this view of the "listname" list. To add a new item, click "New" in a simple (out of the box) way?

I would like to display a custom message if there are no items (due to the expiration of messages) shown.

Thank you for your suggestions.

Yes you can. By default SharePoint uses XSLT template to render list view. You can find start point in this topic.
