In discord.py is there some option how i can get access to msg.content (or ctx.content how everyone uses it) under a command ? Below you can see 2 examples of what i mean. The first one is event and i simply copy the message and let the bot to send it back. The second is command but there the msg.content doesnt work. My problem is that i dont want to use events so much and have everything under a command.
@bot.event async def on_message(msg): chat = bot.get_channel(797224597443051611) if msg.channel.id != channel: return if msg.content.startswith("!rps"): message = str(msg.content) await chat.send(message)
Someone types !rps hello. Outpup in discord is !rps hello
@bot.command() async def rps(msg): if msg.channel.id != channel: return message = str(msg.content) await msg.send(message)
Someone types !rps hello (my prefix is !). Output is error in console:
discord.ext.commands.errors.CommandInvokeError: Command raised an exception: AttributeError: ‘Context’ object has no attribute ‘content’
In order to get the rest of the message of a command, you need to pass another argument. This argument will include all the messages that’s sent after
!rps. Also, using
ctx instead of
msg is better in commands.
@bot.command() async def rps(ctx, *, args): if ctx.channel.id != channel: return await ctx.send(args)
In this code,
args argument includes all the messages after the
