$MadelineProto = new \danog\MadelineProto\API();
$MadelineProto->session = 'mySession.madeline';
if (isset($number)) { // Login as a user
    $code = readline('Enter the code you received: '); // Or do this in two separate steps in an HTTP API

$messages_Messages = $MadelineProto->messages->getHistory(['peer' => InputPeer, 'offset_id' => int, 'offset_date' => int, 'add_offset' => int, 'limit' => int, 'max_id' => int, 'min_id' => int, 'hash' => int, ]);

Or, if you’re using the PWRTelegram HTTP API:

As a user:



peer - Json encoded InputPeer

offset_id - Json encoded int

offset_date - Json encoded int

add_offset - Json encoded int

limit - Json encoded int

max_id - Json encoded int

min_id - Json encoded int

hash - Json encoded int

Or, if you’re into Lua:

messages_Messages = messages.getHistory({peer=InputPeer, offset_id=int, offset_date=int, add_offset=int, limit=int, max_id=int, min_id=int, hash=int, })
