How to open/close Chat



I am currently using the Conversational UI component as my app's chatbot.

I have implemented something custom so that the chat is not always rendered, but it is not actually the desired result. Looking at the Conversational UI's API page, if I'm not wrong, I couldn't find anything like that (for instance, any "closable" property or anything similar to that).

Is there any way to have something like a proper "chat button" in order to show/hide the chat (or at least have just a X icon-button inside the chat to be able to close it)?

Thank you.


Kind Regards,

Hi Yannis,

Indeed, at the moment the Chat component does not provide such functionality. This is why, I updated this thread to a public feature request item, for which can be voted. This will help us to track the demand for the specific feature and provide a release with it in the future. Feel free to add any additional comments related to the required feature.
