Child elements

ElementTypeDescription
message

Defines a message string.

messageTable

Defines a list of message strings. You should not have to use a message table except in the following cases where you must define a message table to explicitly assign resource numbers to message strings.

  • You are migrating from a message text (.mc) file to a manifest but are still writing events to the application and system channels, so that legacy consumers to continue consuming the events. To make this work, the resource identifiers for the message strings defined in the manifest must be the same as the event identifiers. However, the message compiler automatically assigns resource identifiers to the message strings. To override the compiler, use the message table and set the value attribute to the event identifier and the message attribute to refer to a string in the string table in the localization section of the manifest.
  • If you want to identify more than 16 providers, you must include the message table that the seventeenth and on providers must use to assign resource values for the message strings that they define. If the provider references message strings that providers 1 through 16 defined, you do not include those message strings in the message table.
provider ProviderType

A list of providers that you want to define.

Attributes

NameTypeDescription
message strTableRef

A reference to the localized string in the string table.

midxs:string

Not used.

symbol CSymbolType

The symbolic name that you want the message compiler to create for this message string.

value UInt32Type

The number to use as the message identifier for this message.

Remarks

The practical limit of the number of providers that you can define in a manifest is 16 providers. If you specify more than 16 providers, you must use a message table to explicitly assign resource numbers to the message strings that the provider references. For more details, see the message element above.
