The content must be able to be transformed into a string via str(content).

Note

If the original message has embeds with images that were created from local files (using the file parameter with Embed.set_image() or Embed.set_thumbnail()), those images will be removed if the message’s attachments are edited in any way (i.e. by setting file/files/attachments, or adding an embed with local files).

Note

This method cannot be used on messages authored by others, with one exception. The suppress_embeds parameter can be used to change the state of embeds on other users’ messages, requiring the manage_messages permission.

Changed in version 2.1: disnake.Message is always returned.

Changed in version 2.5: The suppress keyword-only parameter was deprecated in favor of suppress_embeds.

Changed in version 2.6: Raises TypeError instead of InvalidArgument.

Parameters:
  • content (Optional[str]) – The new content to replace the message with. Could be None to remove the content.

  • embed (Optional[Embed]) – The new embed to replace the original with. This cannot be mixed with the embeds parameter. Could be None to remove the embed.

  • embeds (List[Embed]) –

    The new embeds to replace the original with. Must be a maximum of 10. This cannot be mixed with the embed parameter. To remove all embeds [] should be passed.

    New in version 2.1.

  • file (File) –

    The file to upload. This cannot be mixed with the files parameter. Files will be appended to the message, see the attachments parameter to remove/replace existing files.

    A list of attachments to keep in the message. If [] or None is passed then all existing attachments are removed. Keeps existing attachments if not provided.

    Changed in version 2.5: Supports passing None to clear attachments.

  • allowed_mentions (Optional[AllowedMentions]) –

    Controls the mentions being processed in this message. If this is passed, then the object is merged with Client.allowed_mentions. The merging behaviour only overrides attributes that have been explicitly passed to the object, otherwise it uses the attributes set in Client.allowed_mentions.

    Note

    Unlike Message.edit(), this does not default to Client.allowed_mentions if no object is passed.
