Hello everyone.

I am trying to display a model in gazebo and I get the following warning:

image description

xacro: Traditional processing is deprecated. Switch to --inorder processing! To check for compatibility of your document, use option --check-order. For more infos, see is deprecated; please use xacro instead

How can i solve this?

This sounds like an XY problem. Is there a larger problem you're trying to solve? The xacro warning is just a warning. It means the robot description is written using xacro, and the roslaunch for it is not passing the --inorder flag. If you have written the robot description and the launch file then follow the link in your answer for instructions on making the warning go away. Otherwise it can be safely ignored.

How do I get the launch file to pass the --inorder flag? Should I add a line of code to the launch file to run inorder?

Use the args attribute on the node tag

the solution is in the launch file:

< param name="robot_description" command="$(find xacro)/xacro --inorder $(arg model)" />

I'm not sure this answer is relevant. Did you mean to post this answer on a different question?
