MadelineProto Example:

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

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

$messages_Messages = $MadelineProto->messages->searchGlobal(['q' => 'string', 'offset_date' => int, 'offset_peer' => InputPeer, 'offset_id' => int, 'limit' => int, ]);

PWRTelegram HTTP API example (NOT FOR MadelineProto):

As a user:



q - Json encoded string

offset_date - Json encoded int

offset_peer - Json encoded InputPeer

offset_id - Json encoded int

limit - Json encoded int

Or, if you’re into Lua:

messages_Messages = messages.searchGlobal({q='string', offset_date=int, offset_peer=InputPeer, offset_id=int, limit=int, })
