when using sendmessage call you have a few options for the replymarkupfield (which is optional)

Main options are: 1. inline keyboard (shows buttons right next to the message) here is a sample syntax

{ “inline_keyboard”: [[ { “text”: “I’m ready, let’s get started”, “callback_data”: “readytostart” }] ] } you can add more buttons in a row and have a few rows of buttons

2. custom keyboard (shows custom keyboard with buttons instead of the regular keyboard) sample syntax { “keyboard”: [[ { “text”: “Done” }] ],“one_time_keyboard”:true } same here, you can add more buttons in a row and have a few rows of buttons
