B4J Library Telegram Bots API

Hello all ,

I started wrapping this project https://github.com/pengrad/java-telegram-bot-api a while ago after failing to make a multipart post that Telegram needs to send a photo :D
the project seems to be huge so I wrapped only features I needed at the current time .
I will try to keep this library updated with most requested features if any :D




Even newer :1.12

A new version with some features is released
Thank you kostefar :)



NEW : 1.06 :
I got busy so I almost stopped working on this library but for my own needs I updated it partially :D I don't remember my updates but If you wanted some feature that was missing , you might want to try this version .
If the feature you are looking for is still missing , You can motivate me with a donation to implement it :)




NEW : 1.05 :
Two new modifications :
1- Initialize method modified to accommodate timeout setting tele.Initialize(Token,EventName,connectTimeout,writeTimeout,readTimeout)
an attempt to solve issue reported by
u2005k
here https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/telegram-bots-api.66458/#post-432967

2- error event
B4X:
Sub tele_error(error As String)
    Log("FROM B4J: "&error)
End Sub
not sure if it would work as it should :D


NEW : Version 1.03 : Just re wrapping a newer (not the latest) version of original library.
I get timeout error but it might be due to partial block on Telegram here .
Can someone please test?

Hi,
Thanks a for quick reply. I don't think I need any special feature right now. Let me try it out and see if any additional features are required.
If I understand it correctly in the example code, I need to poll updates. If I want to use Webhook then I guess I need to build WebApp in B4J and request handler will be webhook url in telegram bot settings. I will get message in JSON format which I can parse and use your library to extract various pieces and respond. It will be great if you can assemble sample bot handler with different types like (Audio, Image, Location) or complete bot app but I know it will consume your time and I don't want you to consume your time unnecessarily. Let me give it a try and if I am successful in building good example then I will post it in the forum.
If you are interested in custom project, please PM me.

Thanks & regards...
Uday

Is telegram working at the time of this error ?
As it is a timeout error , it could be related to telegram servers .

Yes, it is working (I mean, Telegram & Bot is working) ... I have tried same Bot in other PHP library and I get updates in PHP. In B4J code, I either get error (dump was sent earlier) or nothing happens even if there are updates (Sub tele_updates(updates As List) never get fired)

Thanks a lot.

Sorry for that .
I tried the library and I got another error so I downloaded a new version of GitHub library and started re-wrapping it .

hi, thanks for your lib. Can you show how can send messages to the users?
I see tele.sendMessage and ask for a ChatID and I dont know from where I get it.

Yes thank you, I get it from the chat.
Now I have other problem.
Only get the messages with update on the start of application, but now when I send new messages.
New messages not showed on the log, but when I stop and start again I see the old messages.

For test I just try to make my bot for repeat what I say.

After, I want to make queries connected to a local database.

COMMAND1 PARAM1

Param1 is an internal number on our database.

I need to extract more info and show private info.

I thinking on use a command something like password.

CommandPSW password.
If password is OK, then add this user to internal table to show sensible info.

Please show me the way I need to follow.

Sorry if I could not help as it's been a long time since I last worked on this library :)
I am not sure if it is still working with new telegram API .
I will try to find this library and try it again
