Data Object - VirtualMachineMessage(vim.vm.Message)

Property of

VI API 2.5

Data Object Description

Message data which is intended to be displayed according to the locale of a client.

A VirtualMachineMessage contains both a formatted, localized version of the text and the data needed to perform localization in conjunction with localization catalogs.

Clients of the VIM API may use SessionManager.SetLocale to cause the server to emit localized text, or may perform client-side localization based on message catalogs provided by the LocalizationManager.

Message variables are always integers, e.g. {1} and {2}, which are 1-based indexes into argument.

See LocalizationManager

A unique identifier for this particular message. This field is a key for looking up format strings in the locmsg catalog.

Text in session locale. Use SessionManager.SetLocale to change the session locale.
