I’m playing around with Pycord and trying to send a message to a channel X for each element in an array.
The following class will throw a
TypeError: MyClient.on_ready() missing 1 required positional argument: 'message' indicating that
MyClient.on_ready() needs 2 arguments, one for
self, one for
message, but every example on how to pass arguments to class methods were only sending the argument.
class MyClient(discord.Client): def __init__(self, *args, **kwargs): super().__init__(*args, **kwargs) async def on_ready(self, message): channel = self.get_channel(123) # Your channel ID goes here await channel.send(message) client = MyClient() for comment in comments: if comment['data']['parent_id'].startswith("t1") and comment['data']['name'] not in comments_json: wop = comment['data']['permalink'] client.on_ready(wop) client.run("xxx")
What am I missing?
EDIT: Added changes from comment, now error message reads as follow:
coroutine 'MyClient.on_ready' was never awaited client.on_ready(wop) RuntimeWarning: Enable tracemalloc to get the object allocation traceback Ignoring exception in on_ready Traceback (most recent call last): File "C:Python310libsite-packagesdiscordclient.py", line 352, in _run_event await coro(*args, **kwargs) TypeError: MyClient.on_ready() missing 1 required positional argument: 'message'
The error you got is because
on_ready doesn’t take any arguments
Maybe something like this is what you are looking for, gets an channel object and sends an array (also subclassed just like the code you send)
import discord import os import asyncio from typing import Iterable, Optional, Any class MyClient(discord.Client): # > trying to send a message to a channel X for each element in an array. def __init__( self, channel_to_send: int, array: Iterable, *, loop: Optional[asyncio.AbstractEventLoop] = None, **options: Any ): self.channel_to_send = channel_to_send self.array = array super().__init__(loop=loop, **options) async def on_ready(self): channel_ = await self.fetch_channel(self.channel_to_send) for element in self.array: await channel_.send(element) channel_id = 917803321929134133 # Replace this with that of yours array = ["foo", "bar", "this", "is", "working"] # Replace this with that of yours client = MyClient(channel_id, array) client.run(os.getenv("DISCORD_TOKEN"))
