[SOLVED][1.9] Formatting Chat Messages


Recommended Posts


I'm currently updating one of my mods from 1.8.9 to 1.9 and have been trying to figure out how to format chat messages. The 1.8.9 code I have is (in a CommandEvent event handler method):

event.sender.addChatMessage(new ChatComponentText(EnumChatFormatting.RED + "text"));

and the 1.9 code I have is:

event.getSender().addChatMessage(new TextComponentTranslation("text"));

but I'm unsure how to format the text, like making it red, because there is no EnumChatFormatting anymore and I haven't found anything similar.

Thank you so much :D
