form.setAnswer("muc#roomconfig_maxstanzas",100)   ---> is this gone?

Hi all,

In creating my muc , I used newForm.setAnswer(“muc#roomconfig_maxstanzas”,100);

I get an error pointing to this line.

Is the syntax wrong or is this not used?

If not used, how can I set the number of stanzas returned to a person just joining a muc?


BTW, the error I get is:

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Field not found for the specified variable name.


Hey gforty,

That error means that the server didn’‘t offer you that field. I checked the XEP-45 spec and that field is not listed in there. BTW, Wildfire doesn’'t support that field either. Not sure where you got that field name from.

To control the amount of history to get when joining a room you can control it 1) from the server (in case you are using Wildfire) or 2) from the client while joining the room MultiUserChat#join(String nickname, String password, DiscussionHistory history, long timeout). Note the DiscussionHistory being passed as a parameter.
