1.15.2 How i can set the ItemMeta display name with ChatComponent ?

Discussion in 'Spigot Plugin Development' started by AndRo_Marian, Jan 9, 2020.

  1. I'm new in this and i want to know if is possible to set the Item name to be translated by the Client, like how tellraw works:

    Code (Text):
    /minecraft:tellraw @a [{"translate":"entity.minecraft.zombie"},{"text":" "},{"translate":"entity.minecraft.villager.farmer"}]

    Edit: How i use TextComponent to NBTBase to set the NBT tag
    Code (Text):
    display: [{"translate":"entity.minecraft.zombie"},{"text":" "},{"translate":"entity.minecraft.villager.farmer"}]
    Something like:
    Code (Text):
                    var item2 = CraftItemStack.asNMSCopy(item);
                    var nbt = new NBTTagCompound();

                    var text = new TextComponent();

                    text.addExtra(new TranslatableComponent("entity.minecraft.zombie"));
                    text.addExtra(" ");
                    text.addExtra(new TranslatableComponent("entity.minecraft.villager.farmer"));

                    nbt.set("display", text);
    But is not that simple, or if is possible somehow.

  2. Please search the forums before posting, this one is the top post on page 2.
  3. LocalizedName is does nothing. still i see the default DisplayName of the item. And is for Server side, not client side. So the name is empty or will be in English.
    Already searched 2 days, found nothing.
    Not the same thing.

  4. Correct. It's not server side, but that is not why the name is in English like you said its client-side.
    From getLocalizedName():
