class aiogram.types.force_reply.ForceReply(*, force_reply: bool = True, input_field_placeholder: Optional[str] = None, selective: Optional[bool] = None, **extra_data: Any)[source]#

Upon receiving a message with this object, Telegram clients will display a reply interface to the user (act as if the user has selected the bot’s message and tapped ‘Reply’). This can be extremely useful if you want to create user-friendly step-by-step interfaces without having to sacrifice privacy mode.

Example: A poll bot for groups runs in privacy mode (only receives commands, replies to its messages and mentions). There could be two ways to create a new poll:

  • Explain the user how to send a command with parameters (e.g. /newpoll question answer1 answer2). May be appealing for hardcore users but lacks modern day polish.

  • Guide the user through a step-by-step process. ‘Please send me your question’, ‘Cool, now let’s add the first answer option’, ‘Great. Keep adding answer options, then send /done when you’re ready’.

The last option is definitely more attractive. And if you use aiogram.types.force_reply.ForceReply in your bot’s questions, it will receive the user’s answers even if it only receives replies, commands and mentions - without any extra work for the user.


force_reply: bool#

Shows reply interface to the user, as if they manually selected the bot’s message and tapped ‘Reply’

input_field_placeholder: Optional[str]#

Optional. The placeholder to be shown in the input field when the reply is active; 1-64 characters

selective: Optional[bool]#

Optional. Use this parameter if you want to force reply from specific users only. Targets: 1) users that are @mentioned in the text of the aiogram.types.message.Message object; 2) if the bot’s message is a reply (has reply_to_message_id), sender of the original message.
