Sending Message

Overview

The method for sending a message is in the core class TencentImSDKPlugin.v2TIMManager.getMessageManager().
It supports sending text, custom, and rich media messages, and all of which belong to the V2TimMessage type.
V2TimMessage can contain different sub-types to indicate different types of messages.

Key APIs

The sendMessage (details) API is the core API for sending a message. It supports sending all types of messages.
Note:
The advanced message sending API mentioned below refers to sendMessage.
The API is detailed as follows:
Future<V2TimValueCallback<V2TimMessage>> sendMessage(
{
required String id,
required String receiver,
required String groupID,
int priority = 0,
bool onlineUserOnly = false,
bool needReadReceipt = false,
bool isExcludedFromUnreadCount = false,
bool isExcludedFromLastMessage = false,
Map<String, dynamic>? offlinePushInfo,
String? cloudCustomData,
String? localCustomData,
}
)
Parameters:
Parameter
Definition
Valid for One-to-One Chat
Valid for Group Chat
Description
id
ID returned after message creation
YES
YES
Create the message using the `createXxxMessage` API in advance.
receiver
`userID` of the one-to-one message receiver.
YES
NO
Just specify `receiver` for sending one-to-one chat messages.
groupID
`groupID` of the group chat
NO
YES
Just specify `groupID` for sending group messages.
priority
Message priority
NO
YES
Set a higher priority for important messages (such as those for red packets and gifts) and a lower priority for frequent and unimportant messages (such as those for likes).
onlineUserOnly
Whether only online users can receive the message.
YES
YES
If it is set to `true`, the message cannot be pulled by a receiver through historical messages. This is often used to implement weak prompts, such as "The other party is typing..." and unimportant prompts in a group.
offlinePushInfo
Offline push message
YES
YES
The title and content carried when a message is pushed offline.
needReadReceipt
Whether a read receipt is supported for the sent group message
NO
YES
Whether a read receipt is supported for the sent group message
isExcludedFromUnreadCount
Whether the sent message is counted as the unread message of the conversation
YES
YES
If it is set to `true`, the sent message is not counted as the unread message of the conversation. It defaults to `false`.
isExcludedFromLastMessage
Whether the sent message is included in the `lastMessage` of the conversation
YES
YES
If it is set to `true`, the sent message is not included in the `lastMessage` of the conversation. It defaults to `false`.
cloudCustomData
Cloud message data
YES
YES
Extra data of the message that is stored in the cloud and can be accessed by the receiver.
localCustomData
Local message data
YES
YES
Extra data of the message that is stored locally. It cannot be accessed by the receiver and will be lost after the application is uninstalled.

Note:
If both groupID and receiver are set, targeted group messages are sent to receiver. For more information, see Targeted Group Message.

Sending Text Messages

Text messages include one-to-one messages and group messages, which are different in terms of APIs and parameters.
The ordinary and advanced APIs can be used to send text messages. The latter supports more sending parameters (such as priority and offline push message). The ordinary API is as described below, while the advanced API is sendMessage mentioned above.

One-to-one text message

Advanced API

Take the following two steps to send a one-to-one text message with the advanced API:
1. Call createTextMessage (details) to create a text message.
2. Call sendMessage (details) to send the message.
Sample code:
// Create a text message
V2TimValueCallback<V2TimMsgCreateInfoResult> createTextMessageRes =
await TencentImSDKPlugin.v2TIMManager
.getMessageManager()
.createTextMessage(
text: "test", // Text message
);
if (createTextMessageRes.code == 0) {
// Text message created successfully
String? id = createTextMessageRes.data?.id;
// Send the text message
// During the call of `sendMessage`: If only `receiver` is entered, the message is sent to the specified recipient as a one-to-one message;
// if only `groupID` is entered, the message is sent as a group message;
// if `receiver` and `groupID` are entered, the message is sent to the specified member in the specified group and is displayed in the group chat and visible only to the specified recipient.
V2TimValueCallback<V2TimMessage> sendMessageRes =
await TencentImSDKPlugin.v2TIMManager.getMessageManager().sendMessage(
id: id!, // ID of the created message
receiver: "userID", // ID of the recipient
groupID: "groupID", // ID of the receiving group
priority: MessagePriorityEnum.V2TIM_PRIORITY_DEFAULT, // Message priority
onlineUserOnly:
false, // Whether the message can be received only by online users. If this field is set to true, the message cannot be pulled in recipient historical message pulling. This field is often used to implement weak notification features such as "The other party is typing" or unimportant notifications in the group. This field is not supported by audio-video groups (AVChatRoom).
isExcludedFromUnreadCount: false, // Whether the sent message is included in the unread message count of the conversation
isExcludedFromLastMessage: false, // Whether the sent message is included in the `lastMessage` of the conversation
needReadReceipt:
false, // Whether the message requires a read receipt (to use this feature, you need to purchase the Ultimate edition on v6.1 or later).
offlinePushInfo: OfflinePushInfo(), // Title and content for offline push
cloudCustomData: "", // Cloud message data. Extra data of the message that is stored in the cloud and can be accessed by the receiver.
localCustomData:
"" // Local message data. Extra data of the message that is stored locally. It cannot be accessed by the receiver and will be lost after the application is uninstalled.
);
if (sendMessageRes.code == 0) {
// Message sent successfully
}
}

Group text message

Advanced API

Take the following two steps to send a group text message with the advanced API:
1. Call createTextMessage (details) to create a text message.
2. Call sendMessage (details) to send the message.
Sample code:
// Create a text message
V2TimValueCallback<V2TimMsgCreateInfoResult> createTextMessageRes =
await TencentImSDKPlugin.v2TIMManager
.getMessageManager()
.createTextMessage(
text: "test", // Text message
);
if (createTextMessageRes.code == 0) {
// Text message created successfully
String? id = createTextMessageRes.data?.id;
// Send the text message
// During the call of `sendMessage`: If only `receiver` is entered, the message is sent to the specified recipient as a one-to-one message;
// if only `groupID` is entered, the message is sent as a group message;
// if `receiver` and `groupID` are entered, the message is sent to the specified member in the specified group and is displayed in the group chat and visible only to the specified recipient.
V2TimValueCallback<V2TimMessage> sendMessageRes =
await TencentImSDKPlugin.v2TIMManager.getMessageManager().sendMessage(
id: id!, // ID of the created message
receiver: "userID", // ID of the recipient
groupID: "groupID", // ID of the receiving group
priority: MessagePriorityEnum.V2TIM_PRIORITY_DEFAULT, // Message priority
onlineUserOnly:
false, // Whether the message can be received only by online users. If this field is set to true, the message cannot be pulled in recipient historical message pulling. This field is often used to implement weak notification features such as "The other party is typing" or unimportant notifications in the group. This field is not supported by audio-video groups (AVChatRoom).
isExcludedFromUnreadCount: false, // Whether the sent message is included in the unread message count of the conversation
isExcludedFromLastMessage: false, // Whether the sent message is included in the `lastMessage` of the conversation
needReadReceipt:
false, // Whether the message requires a read receipt (to use this feature, you need to purchase the Ultimate edition on v6.1 or later).
offlinePushInfo: OfflinePushInfo(), // Title and content for offline push
cloudCustomData: "", // Cloud message data. Extra data of the message that is stored in the cloud and can be accessed by the receiver.
localCustomData:
"" // Local message data. Extra data of the message that is stored locally. It cannot be accessed by the receiver and will be lost after the application is uninstalled.
);
if (sendMessageRes.code == 0) {
// Message sent successfully
}
}

Sending Custom Messages

Custom messages include one-to-one messages and group messages, which are different in terms of APIs and parameters. Custom messages can be sent with ordinary and advanced APIs. The advanced API is sendMessage (details) mentioned above, which supports more sending parameters (such as priority and offline push message) than the ordinary API.

Custom one-to-one message

Advanced API

Take the following two steps to send a custom one-to-one message with the advanced API:
1. Call createCustomMessage (details) to create a custom message.
2. Call sendMessage (details) to send the message.
Sample code:
// Create a custom message
V2TimValueCallback<V2TimMsgCreateInfoResult> createCustomMessageRes = await TencentImSDKPlugin.v2TIMManager.getMessageManager().createCustomMessage(
data: 'Custom data',
desc: 'Custom desc',
extension: 'Custom extension',
);
if(createCustomMessageRes.code == 0){
String id = createCustomMessageRes.data.id;
// Send the custom message
V2TimValueCallback<V2TimMessage> sendMessageRes = await TencentImSDKPlugin.v2TIMManager.getMessageManager().sendMessage(id: id, receiver: "userID", groupID: "");
if(sendMessageRes.code == 0){
// Message sent successfully
}
}

Custom group message

Advanced API

Take the following two steps to send a custom group message with the advanced API:
1. Call createCustomMessage (details) to create a custom message.
2. Call sendMessage (details) to send the message.
Sample code:
// Create a custom message
V2TimValueCallback<V2TimMsgCreateInfoResult> createCustomMessageRes = await TencentImSDKPlugin.v2TIMManager.getMessageManager().createCustomMessage(
data: 'Custom data',
desc: 'Custom desc',
extension: 'Custom extension',
);
if(createCustomMessageRes.code == 0){
String id = createCustomMessageRes.data.id;
// Send the custom message
V2TimValueCallback<V2TimMessage> sendMessageRes = await TencentImSDKPlugin.v2TIMManager.getMessageManager().sendMessage(id: id, receiver: "", groupID: "groupID");
if(sendMessageRes.code == 0){
// Message sent successfully
}
}

Sending Rich Media Messages

A rich media message can be sent only with the advanced API in the following steps:
1. Call createXxxMessage to create a rich media message object of a specified type, where Xxx indicates the specific message type.
2. Call sendMessage (details) to send the message.
3. Get the callback for message sending success or failure.

Image message

To create an image message, you need to get the path of a local image first. During message sending, the image is uploaded to the server, and the upload progress is called back. The message is sent after the image is uploaded successfully.
If your project requires web support, the image sending mode is different from that on a mobile device. For details, see the web compatibility description section.
Sample code:
V2TimValueCallback<V2TimMsgCreateInfoResult> createImageMessageRes = await TencentImSDKPlugin.v2TIMManager.getMessageManager().createImageMessage(
imagePath: "Absolute path of the local image",
);
if (createImageMessageRes.code == 0) {
String id = createImageMessageRes.data.id;
V2TimValueCallback<V2TimMessage> sendMessageRes = await TencentImSDKPlugin
.v2TIMManager
.getMessageManager()
.sendMessage(id: id, receiver: "userID", groupID: "groupID");
if (sendMessageRes.code == 0) {
// Message sent successfully
}
}

Audio message

To create an audio message, you need to get the path and audio duration of a local audio file first, where the audio duration is for display on the receiver UI. During message sending, the audio is uploaded to the server, and the upload progress is called back. The message is sent after the audio is uploaded successfully.
Sample code:
V2TimValueCallback<V2TimMsgCreateInfoResult> createSoundMessageRes =
await TencentImSDKPlugin.v2TIMManager.getMessageManager().createSoundMessage(
soundPath: "Absolute path of the local audio file",
duration: 10,// Audio duration
);
if (createSoundMessageRes.code == 0) {
String id = createSoundMessageRes.data.id;
V2TimValueCallback<V2TimMessage> sendMessageRes = await TencentImSDKPlugin
.v2TIMManager
.getMessageManager()
.sendMessage(id: id, receiver: "userID", groupID: "groupID");
if (sendMessageRes.code == 0) {
// Message sent successfully
}
}

Video message

To create a video message, you need to get the path, video duration, and video thumbnail of a local video file first, where the video duration and thumbnail are for display on the receiver UI. During message sending, the video is uploaded to the server, and the upload progress is called back. The message is sent after the video is uploaded successfully.
If your project requires web support, the video sending mode is different from that on a mobile device. For details, see the web compatibility description section.
Sample code:
V2TimValueCallback<V2TimMsgCreateInfoResult> createVideoMessageRes =
await TencentImSDKPlugin.v2TIMManager
.getMessageManager()
.createVideoMessage(
videoFilePath: "Absolute path of the local video file",
type: "mp4", // Video type
duration: 10,// Video duration
snapshotPath: "Absolute path of the local video thumbnail file",
);
if (createVideoMessageRes.code == 0) {
String id = createVideoMessageRes.data.id;
V2TimValueCallback<V2TimMessage> sendMessageRes = await TencentImSDKPlugin
.v2TIMManager
.getMessageManager()
.sendMessage(id: id, receiver: "userID", groupID: "groupID");
if (sendMessageRes.code == 0) {
// Message sent successfully
}
}

File message

To create a file message, you need to get the path of a local file first. During message sending, the file is uploaded to the server, and the upload progress is called back. The message is sent after the file is uploaded successfully.
If your project requires web support, the file sending mode is different from that on a mobile device. For details, see the web compatibility description section.
Sample code:
V2TimValueCallback<V2TimMsgCreateInfoResult> createFileMessageRes =
await TencentImSDKPlugin.v2TIMManager
.getMessageManager()
.createFileMessage(
filePath: "Absolute path of the local file",
fileName: "File name",
);
if (createFileMessageRes.code == 0) {
String id = createFileMessageRes.data.id;
V2TimValueCallback<V2TimMessage> sendMessageRes = await TencentImSDKPlugin
.v2TIMManager
.getMessageManager()
.sendMessage(id: id, receiver: "userID", groupID: "groupID");
if (sendMessageRes.code == 0) {
// Message sent successfully
}
}

Location message

Latitude and longitude information is sent in a location message, which requires a map control for display.
Sample code:
V2TimValueCallback<V2TimMsgCreateInfoResult> createLocationMessage =
await TencentImSDKPlugin.v2TIMManager
.getMessageManager()
.createLocationMessage(
desc: "Shennan Boulevard, Nanshan District, Shenzhen",// Location information digest
longitude: 34,// Longitude
latitude: 20, // Latitude
);
if (createLocationMessage.code == 0) {
String id = createLocationMessage.data.id;
V2TimValueCallback<V2TimMessage> sendMessageRes = await TencentImSDKPlugin
.v2TIMManager
.getMessageManager()
.sendMessage(id: id, receiver: "userID", groupID: "groupID");
if (sendMessageRes.code == 0) {
// Message sent successfully
}
}

Emoji message

To send an emoji message, the corresponding emoji code is sent and then converted into the icon in the receiver.
Sample code:
V2TimValueCallback<V2TimMsgCreateInfoResult> createFaceMessageRes =
await TencentImSDKPlugin.v2TIMManager
.getMessageManager()
.createFaceMessage(
index: 0,
data: "",
);
if (createFaceMessageRes.code == 0) {
String id = createFaceMessageRes.data.id;
V2TimValueCallback<V2TimMessage> sendMessageRes = await TencentImSDKPlugin
.v2TIMManager
.getMessageManager()
.sendMessage(id: id, receiver: "userID", groupID: "groupID");
if (sendMessageRes.code == 0) {
// Message sent successfully
}
}

Support for the Flutter for Web

Chat SDK (tencent_cloud_chat_sdk) 4.1.1+2 or later version provides full compatibility with web. The steps for sending a media or file message in the web SDK are different from those of the Android SDK and iOS SDK:
Due to web characteristics, when you create a media or file message, the path cannot be directly passed in to the SDK. You need to get the DOM node for the input based on the element ID and pass in the input DOM after selecting the file.
For media selection, you are advised to use the image_picker package.
For file selection, you are advised to use the file_picker package.
If the value of getElementById in the sample code is different from the input ID that you see in the F12 console, the actual value prevails.

Sending an image

final ImagePicker _picker = ImagePicker();

_sendImageFileOnWeb() async {
final pickedFile = await _picker.pickImage(source: ImageSource.gallery);
final imageContent = await pickedFile!.readAsBytes();
fileName = pickedFile.name;
tempFile = File(pickedFile.path);
fileContent = imageContent;

html.Node? inputElem;
inputElem = html.document
.getElementById("__image_picker_web-file-input")
?.querySelector("input");
final convID = widget.conversationID;
final convType =
widget.conversationType == 1 ? ConvType.c2c : ConvType.group;
final createImageMessageRes = await TencentImSDKPlugin.v2TIMManager
.getMessageManager()
.createImageMessage(inputElement: inputElement);
if (createImageMessageRes.code == 0) {
String id = createImageMessageRes.data.id;
V2TimValueCallback<V2TimMessage> sendMessageRes = await TencentImSDKPlugin
.v2TIMManager
.getMessageManager()
.sendMessage(id: id, receiver: "userID", groupID: "groupID");
if (sendMessageRes.code == 0) {
// Message sent successfully
}
}
}

Sending a video

final ImagePicker _picker = ImagePicker();

_sendVideoFileOnWeb() async {
final pickedFile = await _picker.pickVideo(source: ImageSource.gallery);
final videoContent = await pickedFile!.readAsBytes();
fileName = pickedFile.name ?? "";
tempFile = File(pickedFile.path);
fileContent = videoContent;

if(fileName!.split(".")[fileName!.split(".").length - 1] != "mp4"){
Toast.showToast("The video message must be in mp4 format.", context);
return;
}

html.Node? inputElem;
inputElem = html.document
.getElementById("__image_picker_web-file-input")
?.querySelector("input");
final convID = widget.conversationID;
final convType =
widget.conversationType == 1 ? ConvType.c2c : ConvType.group;
final createVideoMessageRes = await TencentImSDKPlugin.v2TIMManager
.getMessageManager()
.createVideoMessage(inputElement: inputElement, videoFilePath: "", type: "", duration: 0, snapshotPath: "");
if (createVideoMessageRes.code == 0) {
String id = createVideoMessageRes.data.id;
V2TimValueCallback<V2TimMessage> sendMessageRes = await TencentImSDKPlugin
.v2TIMManager
.getMessageManager()
.sendMessage(id: id, receiver: "userID", groupID: "groupID");
if (sendMessageRes.code == 0) {
// Message sent successfully
}
}
}

Sending a file

_sendFileOnWeb(){
final convID = widget.conversationID;
final convType =
widget.conversationType == 1 ? ConvType.c2c : ConvType.group;
FilePickerResult? result = await FilePicker.platform.pickFiles();
if (result != null && result.files.isNotEmpty) {
html.Node? inputElem;
inputElem = html.document
.getElementById("__file_picker_web-file-input")
?.querySelector("input");
fileName = result.files.single.name;
final createFileMessageRes = await TencentImSDKPlugin.v2TIMManager
.getMessageManager()
.createFileMessage(inputElement: inputElement, filePath: "", fileName: fileName);
if (createFileMessageRes.code == 0) {
String id = createFileMessageRes.data.id;
V2TimValueCallback<V2TimMessage> sendMessageRes = await TencentImSDKPlugin
.v2TIMManager
.getMessageManager()
.sendMessage(id: id, receiver: "userID", groupID: "groupID");
if (sendMessageRes.code == 0) {
// Message sent successfully
}
}
}
}
