class telegram.KeyboardButton(text, request_contact=None, request_location=None, request_poll=None, web_app=None, request_chat=None, request_users=None, *, api_kwargs=None)[source]

Bases: telegram.TelegramObject

This object represents one button of the reply keyboard. At most one of the optional fields must be used to specify type of the button. For simple text buttons, str can be used instead of this object to specify text of the button.

Objects of this class are comparable in terms of equality. Two objects of this class are considered equal, if their text, request_contact, request_location, request_poll, web_app, request_users and request_chat are equal.

Note

  • Optional fields are mutually exclusive.

  • request_contact and request_location options will only work in Telegram versions released after 9 April, 2016. Older clients will display unsupported message.

  • request_poll option will only work in Telegram versions released after 23 January, 2020. Older clients will display unsupported message.
