async Message.reply_document()[source]

Bound method reply_document of Message.

Use as a shortcut for:

await client.send_document(, message_thread_id=message.message_thread_id, document=document


await message.reply_document(document)
  • document (str) – File to send. Pass a file_id as string to send a file that exists on the Telegram servers, pass an HTTP URL as a string for Telegram to get a file from the Internet, or pass a file path as string to upload a new file that exists on your local machine.

  • quote (bool, optional) – If True, the message will be sent as a reply to this message. If reply_to_message_id is passed, this parameter will be ignored. Defaults to True in group chats and False in private chats.

  • thumb (str | BinaryIO, optional) – Thumbnail of the file sent. The thumbnail should be in JPEG format and less than 200 KB in size. A thumbnail’s width and height should not exceed 320 pixels. Thumbnails can’t be reused and can be only uploaded as a new file.

  • caption (str, optional) – Document caption, 0-1024 characters.

  • parse_mode (ParseMode, optional) – By default, texts are parsed using both Markdown and HTML styles. You can combine both syntaxes together.

  • caption_entities (List of MessageEntity) – List of special entities that appear in the caption, which can be specified instead of parse_mode.

  • file_name (str, optional) – File name of the document sent. Defaults to file’s path basename.

  • force_document (bool, optional) – Pass True to force sending files as document. Useful for video files that need to be sent as document messages instead of video messages. Defaults to False.

  • disable_notification (bool, optional) – Sends the message silently. Users will receive a notification with no sound.

  • reply_to_message_id (int, optional) – If the message is a reply, ID of the original message.

  • schedule_date (datetime, optional) – Date when the message will be automatically sent.

  • reply_markup (InlineKeyboardMarkup | ReplyKeyboardMarkup | ReplyKeyboardRemove | ForceReply, optional) – Additional interface options. An object for an inline keyboard, custom reply keyboard, instructions to remove reply keyboard or to force a reply from the user.

  • progress (Callable, optional) – Pass a callback function to view the file transmission progress. The function must take (current, total) as positional arguments (look at Other Parameters below for a detailed description) and will be called back each time a new file chunk has been successfully transmitted.

  • progress_args (tuple, optional) – Extra custom arguments for the progress callback function. You can pass anything you need to be available in the progress callback scope; for example, a Message object or a Client instance in order to edit the message with the updated progress status.

Other Parameters:
  • current (int) – The amount of bytes transmitted so far.

  • total (int) – The total size of the file.

  • *args (tuple, optional) – Extra custom arguments as defined in the progress_args parameter. You can either keep *args or add every single extra argument in your function signature.


On success, the sent Message is returned. In case the upload is deliberately stopped with stop_transmission(), None is returned instead.
