Subject: lang attribute in xml
             Hello again,
 
        Is there a way to force the lang attribute to a certain language when sending/receiving xml blocks?
       
       
  1.         <stream:stream xmlns:stream=... id=... from=... version="1.0" xml:lang="en" >

        For example in the xml code line above I have lang="en". Can I force it to always be lang="en"?
       Sometimes the language is not english. I don't know how or when this happens but I was wandering if I can force language to     always be english.

        Thank you in advance.

XmppXElement has a property named XmlLanguage. There you can set the language of your packets.

The incoming stream header gets created by your server, and MatriX show the xml:lang attribute your server sends.
The outgoing stream header is created by MatriX, there is currently no way to override it.

you don't have to set it at all. It makes only sense to use it when

  • 1) your server supports multiple languages and can presents content in the choosen language. Under "normal" conditions you don't need it.
  • 2) you want to send eg. a message in multiple langauges like the following

  1. <message xml:lang='fr' from='bard@shakespeare.lit/globe' to='playwright@marlowe.lit/theatre'>
  2.  <subject xml:lang='fr'>Bonjour</subject>
  3.  <subject xml:lang='en'>Hello</subject>
  4.  <subject xml:lang='ru'>x443;&#x43B;&#x442;&#x435;</subject>
  5.  <body xml:lang='fr'>comment allez-vous?</body>
  6.  <body xml:lang='en'>How are you?</body>
  7.  <body xml:lang='ru'>&#x41A;&#x430;&#x43A; &#x432;&#x44B;?</body>
  8. </message>

          But I need all xml exchanges to have lang="en".
          For example the xml exchange when I use the Open() method within the XmppClient object.
          How do I do this? Is there a way to do this from my client application?
          Thank you.

On all packets you send with XmppCLient.Send() you can add it with the following code.

  1. var msg = new Message();
  2. // fill properties
  3. msg.XmlLanguage = "en";
  4. XmppClient.Send(msg)

You cannot add it to the stream header.

          I am a .NET Developer and I've been assigned this task.
          When the XmppClient initiates connection to the XMPP server with the Open() method an xml exchange occurs. Right?
          I need this exchange to have lang="en". And all other exchanges that have the lang attribute.
          At the moment I don't know why we need this, it's just what I was asked to do.
          Thank you for your time.

How about presence? Can I set it there? For example:
  1. <presence xml:lang="fr" />

XmppClient.Open() does lots of stuff until your are logged in.
As said before you can set the xml lang on every packet you sent. But you cannot set it to the stream header. And I currently see no reasons for changes until you can t can give me a good reason or tell me under which conditions this causes problem.

Ok, thank you.
I think I got it.
I guess we will have to leave it as it is regarding the stream header.

Thank you very much.
I've seen that there is a property Presence.XmlLanguage as you previously instructed me.
I talked to my team leader and he said it is ok if I don't fix the issue entirely. (not a major issue probably)
