Retrieve a message

Copy link

You can retrieve a specific message in an open or group channel by creating and passing the MessageRetrievalParams object as an argument into the getMessage() method.

Note: Starting from Flutter Chat SDK 3.1.0, MessageRetrievalParams requires the channelType, channelUrl, and messageId parameters.

try {
  // Create a MessageRetrievalParams object.
  final params = MessageRetrievalParams(
    channelType: ChannelType.open
    channelUrl: 'CHANNEL_URL'
    messageId: MESSAGE_ID

  // Pass the params to the parameter of the getMessage() method.
  final message = await BaseMessage.getMessage(params);
  // The specified message is successfully retrieved.
} catch (e) {
  // Handle error.
