Bot.editMessageInChat(10512154, "new text", 25)
message_id - it is unique identificator for all chats of this bot.

Message_id for income messages to bot

For income messages to bot: use request.message_id

Example

let msg_id = request.message_id;
Bot.editMessage("new text", msg_id)
// also you can store message_id for future editing:
User.setProperty("msg_id", msg_id, "integer");
// or if you want to edit message from others chats:
Bot.setProperty("msg_id" + chat.chatid, msg_id, "integer");
Message_id - have unique value for all chats of bot. So we have only one message_id with value "2" and only in one chat.

Message_id for messages from bot

use on_result in options - see this

Example

in first command:
Bot.sendMessage("hello",
{on_result: "onMessageSending" }
)
in command onMessageSending:
// You can inspect all result:
// Bot.inspect(options)
let msg_id = options.result.message_id;
Bot.editMessage("new text", msg_id);
// Also you can save message_id for future:
// Bot.setProperty( "MSG-for-edit" + chat.chatid, msg_id, "integer");
