# Method: messages.setInlineBotResults

Back to methods index

Answer an inline query, for bots only

# Parameters:

Name Type Description Required
gallery Bool Set this flag if the results are composed of media files Optional
private Bool Set this flag if results may be cached on the server side only for the user that sent the query. By default, results may be returned to any user who sends the same query Optional
query_id long Unique identifier for the answered query Yes
results Array of InputBotInlineResult Vector of results for the inline query Yes
cache_time int The maximum amount of time in seconds that the result of the inline query may be cached on the server. Defaults to 300. Yes
next_offset string Pass the offset that a client should send in the next query with the same text to receive more results. Pass an empty string if there are no more results or if you don‘t support pagination. Offset length can’t exceed 64 bytes. Optional
switch_pm InlineBotSwitchPM If passed, clients will display a button with specified text that switches the user to a private chat with the bot and sends the bot a start message with a certain parameter. Optional

# Return type: Bool

# Can bots use this method: YES

# MadelineProto Example (now async for huge speed and parallelism!):

if (!file_exists('madeline.php')) {
    copy('https://phar.madelineproto.xyz/madeline.php', 'madeline.php');
include 'madeline.php';

$MadelineProto = new \danog\MadelineProto\API('session.madeline');

$Bool = $MadelineProto->messages->setInlineBotResults(['gallery' => Bool, 'private' => Bool, 'query_id' => long, 'results' => [InputBotInlineResult, InputBotInlineResult], 'cache_time' => int, 'next_offset' => 'string', 'switch_pm' => InlineBotSwitchPM, ]);

Or, if you’re into Lua:

Bool = messages.setInlineBotResults({gallery=Bool, private=Bool, query_id=long, results={InputBotInlineResult}, cache_time=int, next_offset='string', switch_pm=InlineBotSwitchPM, })
