Creating Interactive Buttons for Changing Sizes in Aiogram

What will you learn?

In this tutorial, you will master the art of implementing interactive up and down buttons using the Aiogram library in Python. By creating these interactive buttons, you will be able to enhance user experience by allowing them to adjust sizes seamlessly within your Telegram bot interface.

Introduction to the Problem and Solution

When developing Telegram bots with Aiogram, incorporating interactive buttons for adjusting values such as font size or image size can greatly improve user engagement and interaction. These interactive buttons provide users with a convenient way to control settings directly through the bot interface, making the user experience more intuitive and engaging.

To address this need, we will delve into creating a solution that involves implementing callback queries in Aiogram. By designing two buttons – one for increasing and another for decreasing a value – you will learn how to handle button interactions effectively while dynamically updating messages based on user actions. This approach not only enhances user engagement but also equips you with valuable skills in managing button interactions within your Telegram bot.


from aiogram import Bot, Dispatcher, executor, types
from aiogram.types import InlineKeyboardMarkup, InlineKeyboardButton

bot = Bot(token=API_TOKEN)
dp = Dispatcher(bot)

@dp.callback_query_handler(lambda c: == 'increase' or == 'decrease')
async def handle_callback(callback_query: types.CallbackQuery):
    current_size = int(callback_query.message.text.split()[-1])
    if == 'increase':
        new_size = current_size + 1
        new_size = max(0, current_size - 1)

    await bot.edit_message_text(text=f"Current Size: {new_size}",

def size_control_markup():
    markup = InlineKeyboardMarkup()
    increase_button = InlineKeyboardButton('Increase', callback_data='increase')
    decrease_button = InlineKeyboardButton('Decrease', callback_data='decrease')
    markup.add(increase_button, decrease_button)
    return markup

@dp.message_handler(commands=['start', 'resize'])
async def send_welcome(message: types.Message):
    await message.reply("Welcome! Use the buttons below to adjust size.\nCurrent Size: 0", reply_markup=size_control_markup())

if __name__ == '__main__':

Below are key points about the code snippet:

  • Callback Queries: Utilize @dp.callback_query_handler decorator to capture callback queries based on their data (‘increase’ or ‘decrease’).
  • Dynamic Message Editing: Employ edit_message_text method to update message content without sending a new message upon button press.
  • Inline Keyboards: Create interactive buttons using InlineKeyboardMarkup and InlineKeyboardButton to enable specific actions via callback data.

By integrating these elements into your bot’s logic flow effectively, you empower dynamic interaction capabilities that significantly elevate user engagement.

  1. How do I set up my own Telegram Bot?

  2. To create your own Telegram Bot, obtain a Bot API token by conversing with @BotFather on Telegram.

  3. What is an inline keyboard?

  4. An inline keyboard allows bots to present custom reply options beneath messages�transforming plain texts into interactive UI elements within Telegram chats.

  5. Can I prevent negative sizes?

  6. Yes! The example code under handle_callback includes logic using Python�s max() function to prevent sizes from going below zero.

  7. How does edit_message_text work?

  8. This method modifies an existing message’s text instead of sending a new one. It requires identifiers like chat ID and message ID along with updated text content.

  9. Is it possible to add more than two buttons?

  10. Certainly! Customize your inline keyboard layout by adding additional instances of InlineKeyboardButton within your markup structure as required.


Implementing up and down interactive buttons for changing sizes in your Telegram bot offers users direct control over preferences within their conversation window. By mastering Aiogram�s handling of callback queries alongside efficient use of inline keyboards and dynamic messaging techniques showcased here, you can create highly engaging bots tailored to diverse application needs.
