Update Message

Updating a message is what should be called when a user "edits" a message, passing in the changed message with the updates.

Requirements

Message_AllowEditing - "Allow Message Editing"

Example Call

The only parameter that needs to be passed in is the Message Object which contains the updated message properties, such as the text.

{
"msg": "method",
"method": "updateMessage",
"id": "42",
"params": [ messageObject ]
}

Example Response

"result": []
}

Additional Information

As mentioned in requirements, you must be logged in to be able to edit a message along with having the permission edit-message. Two settings apply, Message_AllowEditing and then Message_AllowEditing_BlockEditInMinutes. The first setting is a boolean, true/false, and the second setting is an integer that can be 0 for unlimited editing or anything greater and editing will be blocked after the time in minutes has passed.
