Dialogflow Messenger df-response-received event

Website Name Change

I have changed the name of this website from Mining Business Data to BotFlo. I am offering a 40% off discount (on any course of your choice) until May 15th 2021 for people who help me spread the word.

I got this question on my YouTube channel recently:

Hi, thanks for sharing this video! i have a question: – how i use Events JavaScript from dialogflow messenger (df-request-sent & df-response-received)

I used the df-response-received event as part of my Dialogflow CX bot which helps you choose between ES, CX and Actions Builder.

Here is some sample code:

Suppose the dfMessenger object has been added to your HTML like this (just copy this from the Dialogflow console)

<script src="https://www.gstatic.com/dialogflow-console/fast/messenger-cx/bootstrap.js?v=1"></script>
<df-messenger df-cx="true" chat-title="DFChooser" agent-id="your-agent-id-goes-here" language-code="en"></df-messenger>

const dfMessenger = document.querySelector('df-messenger');
dfMessenger.addEventListener('df-response-received', function (event) {
    if (event.detail.response) {
        data = event.detail.response;
        //now do something with the data JSON object

You can parse the data object (which is in JSON format) and you will see that it contains all the information coming back from Dialogflow.

This is for a CX bot, but the basic concept works the same way for ES also.

I haven’t used the df-request-sent event, but I would expect that it would work in the same way. Note: the df-response-received event includes the request information from the user, so it is sufficient if you are just trying to log the Dialogflow conversation to a database.

"The magic key I needed as a non-programmer"

The custom payload generator was the magic key I needed (as a non-programmer) to build a good demo with rich responses in DialogFlow Messenger. I've only used it for 30 minutes and am thrilled. I've spent hours trying to figure out some of the intricacies of DialogFlow on my own. Over and over, I kept coming back to Aravind's tutorials available on-line. I trust the other functionalities I learn to use in the app will save me additional time and heartburn.
