Sending Embeds

You might have seen these special messages, often sent by bots. In this section, we will show how to create an embed.

Note
Because this example utilizes message content, it requires the message content privileged intent.
#include <dpp/dpp.h>
int main() {
/* Setup the bot */
/* Message handler to look for a command called !embed */
bot.on_message_create([&bot](const dpp::message_create_t & event) {
if (event.msg.content == "!embed") {
/* create the embed */
dpp::embed embed = dpp::embed().
set_color(dpp::colors::sti_blue).
set_title("Some name").
set_url("https://dpp.dev/").
set_author("Some name", "https://dpp.dev/", "https://dpp.dev/DPP-Logo.png").
set_description("Some description here").
set_thumbnail("https://dpp.dev/DPP-Logo.png").
add_field(
"Regular field title",
"Some value here"
).
add_field(
"Inline field title",
"Some value here",
true
).
add_field(
"Inline field title",
"Some value here",
true
).
set_image("https://dpp.dev/DPP-Logo.png").
set_footer(dpp::embed_footer().set_text("Some footer text here").set_icon("https://dpp.dev/DPP-Logo.png")).
set_timestamp(time(0));
/* reply with the created embed */
bot.message_create(dpp::message(event.msg.channel_id, embed).set_reference(event.msg.id));
}
});
bot.start(dpp::st_wait);
return 0;
}
