MadelineProto Example:

if (!file_exists('madeline.php')) {
    copy('', 'madeline.php');
include 'madeline.php';

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

$messages_Dialogs = $MadelineProto->messages->getDialogs(['exclude_pinned' => Bool, 'offset_date' => int, 'offset_id' => int, 'offset_peer' => InputPeer, 'limit' => int, 'hash' => [int, int], ]);

PWRTelegram HTTP API example (NOT FOR MadelineProto):

As a user:



exclude_pinned - Json encoded Bool

offset_date - Json encoded int

offset_id - Json encoded int

offset_peer - Json encoded InputPeer

limit - Json encoded int

hash - Json encoded array of int

Or, if you’re into Lua:

messages_Dialogs = messages.getDialogs({exclude_pinned=Bool, offset_date=int, offset_id=int, offset_peer=InputPeer, limit=int, hash={int}, })
