Method: updates.getDifference

Back to methods index

Warning: this is a low-level, complex method that must never be used directly.

The event handler provides a high-level abstraction that must be used instead of this method to fetch updates. If you want to fetch all users of a bot using a bot token, use getDialogIds or the high-level broadcast API, instead.

You cannot use this method directly, please use the event handler, instead.

pts_limitintPTS limitOptional
pts_total_limitintFor fast updating: if provided and pts + pts_total_limit < remote pts, updates.differenceTooLong will be returned.
Simply tells the server to not return the difference if it is bigger than pts_total_limit
If the remote pts is too big (> ~4000000), this field will default to 1000000

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

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

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

$updates_Difference = $MadelineProto->updates->getDifference(pts: $int, pts_limit: $int, pts_total_limit: $int, date: $int, qts: $int, qts_limit: $int, );
