Delete a message

Copy link

Users can delete any message they themselves have sent. An error is returned if a user attempts to delete messages sent by other users. Also channel operators can delete any messages in a channel.

try {
  await channel.deleteMessage(MESSAGE_ID);
  // The messageId parameter indicates a messageId from the BaseMessage object.
  // The message is successfully deleted from the channel.
} catch (e) {
  // Handle error.

class MyOpenChannelHandler extends OpenChannelHandler {
  void onMessageDeleted(BaseChannel channel, int messageId) {
