I am a message to be shown in a UI.

Projects should subclass this base class to provide default project and version class attributes.

source code 

Create a new message.

The id identifies this kind of message, and serves two purposes.

The first purpose is to serve as a key by which a kind of message might be removed from a set of messages. For example, a firewire component detecting that a cable has been plugged in will remove any message that the cable is unplugged.

Secondly it serves so that the message viewers that watch the 'current state' of some object only see the latest message of a given type. For example when messages are stored in persistent state objects that can be transferred over the network, it becomes inefficient to store the whole history of status messages. Message stores can keep only the latest message of a given ID.

  • level - ERROR, WARNING or INFO
  • translatable - a translatable possibly with markup for linking to documentation or running commands.
  • debug - further, untranslated, debug information, not always shown
  • priority - priority compared to other messages of the same level
  • timestamp - time since epoch at which the message was generated, in seconds.
  • mid - A unique id for this kind of message, as discussed above. If not given, will be generated from the contents of the translatable.
