forward_messages()

Client.forward_messages()

Forward messages of any kind.

Parameters
  • chat_id (int | str) – Unique identifier (int) or username (str) of the target chat. For your personal cloud (Saved Messages) you can simply use “me” or “self”. For a contact that exists in your Telegram address book you can use his phone number (str).

  • from_chat_id (int | str) – Unique identifier (int) or username (str) of the source chat where the original message was sent. For your personal cloud (Saved Messages) you can simply use “me” or “self”. For a contact that exists in your Telegram address book you can use his phone number (str).

  • message_ids (iterable) – A list of Message identifiers in the chat specified in from_chat_id or a single message id. Iterators and Generators are also accepted.

  • disable_notification (bool, optional) – Sends the message silently. Users will receive a notification with no sound.

  • as_copy (bool, optional) – Pass True to forward messages without the forward header (i.e.: send a copy of the message content so that it appears as originally sent by you). Defaults to False.

  • remove_caption (bool, optional) – If set to True and as_copy is enabled as well, media captions are not preserved when copying the message. Has no effect if as_copy is not enabled. Defaults to False.

Returns

Message | List of Message – In case message_ids was an integer, the single forwarded message is returned, otherwise, in case message_ids was an iterable, the returned value will be a list of messages, even if such iterable contained just a single element.

# Forward a single message
app.forward_messages("me", "pyrogram", 20)

# Forward multiple messages at once
app.forward_messages("me", "pyrogram", [3, 20, 27])

# Forward messages as copy
app.forward_messages("me", "pyrogram", 20, as_copy=True)
