React Native App Inbox Messages

Get App Inbox Messages

You can retrieve inbox messages from your React Native application using the getAppInboxMessages method. Inbox messages can be useful for displaying notifications, promotions, or other types of messages to your users.

This function retrieves inbox messages from the server and handles the success or error cases accordingly.

import { getAppInboxMessages } from "reteno-react-native-sdk";

/**
 * Interface representing parameters for fetching inbox messages.
 *
 * export type GetAppInboxMessages = {
 *  page?: number;          // The page number to retrieve (optional).
 *  pageSize?: number;      // The number of messages per page (optional).
 * };
 */

/**
 * Interface representing an inbox message.
 * export type InboxMessage = {
 * id: string; // The unique identifier of the message.
 * title: string; // The title of the message.
 * createdDate: string; // The date when the message was created.
 * imageURL?: string; // The URL of an image associated with the message (optional)
 * linkURL?: string; // The URL to redirect the user when the message is clicked (optional).
 * isNew: boolean; // A flag indicating whether the message is new.
 * content?: string; // The content of the message (optional).
 * category?: string; // The category of the message (only available on Android).
};

const handleDownloadMessages = () => {
  getAppInboxMessages({})
    .then((response) => {
      Alert.alert(
        "Success download messages",
        response ? JSON.stringify(response) : response
      );
    })
    .catch((error) => {
      Alert.alert("Error", error);
    });
};

Get Inbox Unread Messages Count

You can subscribe to changes in the unread messages count in your React Native application using the onUnreadMessagesCountChanged method. This allows you to receive notifications whenever the unread messages count changes.

You can use these functions to unsubscribe from changes in the unread messages count in your application. Only on Android: unsubscribeMessagesCountChanged unsubscribeAllMessagesCountChanged

import {
  onUnreadMessagesCountChanged,
  unsubscribeMessagesCountChanged,
  unsubscribeAllMessagesCountChanged,
} from "reteno-react-native-sdk";

useEffect(() => {
  // Subscribe to unread messages count changes
  onUnreadMessagesCountChanged();

  return () => {
    // Unsubscribe from changes in the unread messages count - Android only
    unsubscribeMessagesCountChanged();
    unsubscribeAllMessagesCountChanged();
  };
}, []);

Handling Unread Messages Count Events

You can handle events related to changes in the unread messages count in your React Native application using the following methods:

import {
  unreadMessagesCountHandler,
  unreadMessagesCountErrorHandler,
} from "reteno-react-native-sdk";

useEffect(() => {
  // Subscribe to events related to changes in the unread messages count
  const unreadMessagesCountListener = unreadMessagesCountHandler((data) => {
    Alert.alert(
      "Unread Messages Count Changed",
      data ? JSON.stringify(data) : data
    );
  });

  return () => {
    // Remove the subscription when the component unmounts
    unreadMessagesCountListener.remove();
  };
}, []);

useEffect(() => {
  // Subscribe to events related to errors in the unread messages count (Android Only)
  const unreadMessagesCountErrorListener = unreadMessagesCountErrorHandler(
    (error) =>
      Alert.alert(
        "Unread Messages Count Error",
        error ? JSON.stringify(error) : error
      )
  );

  return () => {
    // Remove the subscription when the component unmounts
    if (unreadMessagesCountErrorListener) {
      unreadMessagesCountErrorListener.remove();
    }
  };
}, []);

Marking Messages as Opened

You can mark messages as opened in your React Native application using the markAsOpened function. This function takes an array of message IDs (but only one message id on Android ex. ['id']) as input and returns a promise that resolves to an object containing the status of the operation.

import { markAsOpened } from "reteno-react-native-sdk";

const handleMarkAsOpened = () => {
  markAsOpened([messageId])
    .then((response) => {
      Alert.alert(
        "Success Marked as Opened",
        response ? JSON.stringify(response) : response
      );
    })
    .catch((error) => {
      Alert.alert("Error", error);
    });
};

Marking All Messages as Opened

You can mark all messages as opened in your React Native application using the markAllAsOpened function. This function does not require any parameters and returns a promise that resolves to an object containing the status of the operation.

import { markAllAsOpened } from "reteno-react-native-sdk";

const handleMarkAllAsOpened = () => {
  markAllAsOpened()
    .then((response) => {
      Alert.alert(
        "Success Marked All as Opened",
        response ? JSON.stringify(response) : response
      );
    })
    .catch((error) => {
      Alert.alert("Error", error);
    });
};

Getting Inbox Messages Count

You can retrieve the count of inbox messages in your React Native application using the getAppInboxMessagesCount function. This function is available only for Android devices. It returns a promise that resolves to the number of inbox messages.

import { getAppInboxMessagesCount } from "reteno-react-native-sdk";

const handleGetAppInboxMessagesCount = () => {
  getAppInboxMessagesCount()
    .then((response) => {
      Alert.alert(
        "Success",
        response !== null ? JSON.stringify(response) : response
      );
    })
    .catch((error) => {
      Alert.alert("Error", error);
    });
};
