Sends "Chatbot is typing a message...»

Attention! restCommand function is used here for illustration purposes only. It is taken from the EchoBot example. You can send a REST command with your own function, or use the BX24.callMethod or bitrix24-php-sdk methods.

Note: These methods of message processing are usually employed when the user is typing something, that is why the ONIMBOTMESSAGEADD event must be processed.

Method call

$result = restCommand('', Array(

    'BOT_ID' => 39, // ID of chatbot that sends request. Is optional, there is only one chatbot
    'DIALOG_ID' => 1, // Dialogue ID, it is either USER_ID, or chatXX – where XX is chat ID, transmitted in events ONIMBOTMESSAGEADD and ONIMJOINCHAT

), $_REQUEST["auth"]);


true or error.
