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?

I am new to B4X group. It's very hard for me to start big project. If someone could share a more complete project code , I think all beginners are very appreciate. The beginner can grow up soon by "learn","copy" from giant of you.

thanks advance for all of your help on my B4x road.

Yes it would be very nice to have a demo code. Because your "old" sample code only checks the last messages after start. dont know how to send or recieve a message
Also i dont know how to send a message or use the customkeyboards.
It would be also nice , if you documenting you lib. There are so many Methods etc and i dont know what it is and where or how to use it:)

Im getting the latest message once, shortly after sending with

B4X:
Sub tele_updates(updates As List)
    If updates.IsInitialized Then
        Dim update As Update=updates.Get(updates.size-1)
         Dim Message As Message = update.message
         ID=update.updateId
         Log(Message.text)
    End If
End Sub

'1sec Timer
Sub update_tick
    bot.GetUpdatesList(ID+1,1,9000)
End Sub

But after that, each call of GetUpdatesList throws an catched error
Exception in getting updates :null

how can i avoid this?

I think you are using it wrong.

GetUpdatelist should be used with the last ID given by a recent Update.
ID=update.updateId
THIS is the id which should be used.

Additionally i would try it with a 10 Seconds interval or so. Just to make sure you get it working correctly. You may lower it when everything is working as expected.
Note that you are sending a lot of requests to Telegram service with this interval (1 sec)...

To not further fill this thread (we should have created a new thread in the questionsforum).
I suggest to switch to questionsforum.

I started playing (wrapping :D) with another Botimplementation: jTelegramBot.
It is using a "longpollingBot" which raises an Event if a new Update comes in. (No need for a timer based request!)
This is the progress so far. For any questions/want to try please create a new Thread in the questionsforum and i´ll answer there. It is another library than the one from this thread so we should talk about in another thread ;-)
B4X:
Sub JTB_onMessageReceived(api As Object, id As Int, msg As Object)
    Log($"JTB_onMessageReceived( ${id}, ${msg}"$) 
    Dim message As Message = msg
    Log($"MessageFrom: ${message.From}"$)
    Dim from As User = message.From
    Log($"FromFirstName: ${from.FirstName}"$)
    Log($"FromLastName: ${from.LastName}"$)
    Log($"FromUserName: ${from.Username}"$)
    Log($"FromID: ${from.Id}"$)
    Log($"FromisBot: ${from.isBot}"$)
    Log($"FromLanguageCode: ${from.LanguageCode}"$)
  
    Log($"MessageChat: ${message.Chat}"$)
    Dim chat As Chat = message.Chat
    Log($"ChatFirstName: ${chat.FirstName}"$)
    Log($"ChatFirstName: ${chat.LastName}"$)
    Log($"ChatUserName: ${chat.Username}"$)
    If chat.Title <> Null Then
        Log($"ChatTitle: ${chat.Title}"$)
    End If
    Log($"ChatID: ${chat.Id}"$)

    If message.Caption <> Null Then
        Log($"MessageCaption: ${message.Caption}"$)
    End If
    If message.Contact <> Null Then
        Log($"MessageContact: ${message.Contact}"$)
    End If
        Log($"MessageDate: ${message.Date}"$)
    If message.Entities <> Null Then
        Log($"MessageEntities: ${message.Entities}"$)
    End If
    Log($"MessageText: ${message.Text}"$)
End Sub
JTelegramBot (donmanfred_bot) starts in "Polling" mode.
JTB_onMessageReceived( 193433885, Message{messageId=176, from=User{id=302708740, firstName='Manfred', lastName='Ssykor', username='DonManfred'}, date=1552727473, chat=Chat{id=302708740, type=private, title='null', username='DonManfred', firstName='Manfred', lastName='Ssykor'}, forwardFrom=null, forwardFromChat=null, forwardDate=null, replyToMessage=null, editDate=0, text='6575', entities=null, audio=null, document=null, photo=null, sticker=null, video=null, voice=null, caption='null', contact=null, location=null, venue=null, newChatMember=null, leftChatMember=null, newChatTitle='null', newChatPhoto=null, deleteChatPhoto=null, groupChatCreated=null, superGroupChatCreated=null, channelChatCreated=null, migrateToChatId=null, migrateFromChatId=null, pinnedMessage=null}

PS: Der einfachheit halber evtl. im Deutschen Forum :D
For the easyness eventually in the german Forum :D

I have uploaded version 1.15 to the first post
Please download
I work on this wrapper from time to time for my own purposes :D so I might have added some undocumented changes and features

Hi, this library could do for me but I see it is dated 2016, I was wondering if it is still valid or Telegram has changed APIWeb?

I should do an implementation on my management and it could be good for me, it would be nice to be able to do it also to WhastApp, but if this works I'd be happy already.

is it possible to have a simplified demo project, login + user list and how to send messages... as well as a simple library installation manual?

This is a telegram bot api library I don't think there is a login
I've uploaded version 1.15 to the first post
Please note that this library has a lot of functions and objects and I just wrap part of them

There is a simple demo hers

no methods to send document file for example zip or txt ...
So i guess sending a DOCUMENT is not implemented in this Library.

You can use
Here you are able to send a Document (ZIP, TXT, XLS, whatever). It is implemented in the Example.
Note that this library is not maintained as i do not use Telegram any longer.

Can this Library be used in the b4a?
