There are other kind of message types which are supported by the client. In the following paragraphs we will look how to send contacts, venues or locations.
This is the code to send a contact. Mandatory are the parameters
Message msg = await botClient.SendContactAsync( chatId: e.Message.Chat.Id, phoneNumber: "+1234567890", firstName: "Han", lastName: "Solo" );
If you want to send a contact as vCard you can achieve this by adding a valid vCard
string as value for the optional parameter
vCard as seen in the given example below.
Message msg = await botClient.SendContactAsync( chatId: e.Message.Chat.Id, phoneNumber: "+1234567890", firstName: "Han", vCard: "BEGIN:VCARD\n" + "VERSION:3.0\n" + "N:Solo;Han\n" + "ORG:Scruffy-looking nerf herder\n" + "TEL;TYPE=voice,work,pref:+1234567890\n" + "EMAIL:email@example.com\n" + "END:VCARD" );
The code snippet below sends a venue with a title and a address as given parameters:
Message msg = await botClient.SendVenueAsync( chatId: e.Message.Chat.Id, latitude: 50.0840172f, longitude: 14.418288f, title: "Man Hanging out", address: "Husova, 110 00 Staré Město, Czechia" );
The difference between sending a location and a venue is, that the venue requires a title and address. A location can be any given point as latitude and longitude.
The following snippet shows how to send a location with the mandatory parameters:
Message message = await botClient.SendLocationAsync( chatId: e.Message.Chat.Id, latitude: 33.747252f, longitude: -112.633853f );
