Is it possible to update a message that is already in the UI?

I want to be able to stream text into the response rather than just dump the whole content in one. 

Is this possible?

Hi Wayne,

We apologize for the delay in responding to your query regarding 'Stream text into the response'. After investigating your request, we believe that what you are looking for is the 'load more' feature for fetching messages in a chat conversation.

You can use the SfChat.LoadMoreBehavior to implement this functionality in your application. This will allow users to scroll to the top of the message list and fetch messages on demand, either automatically or by tapping the 'load more' button.

For more information on how to implement this feature, please refer to our User Guide, which provides detailed instructions and code examples.

No this is not correct - I don't want to load more messages - I want to add more to an existing message

We apologize for any inconvenience caused. We would like to inform you that it is possible to update the existing message in the UI. However, this can only be done if you have inherited INotifyPropertyChanged for your view model and raised a PropertyChangedEvent for Message collections.

To help you with this, we’ve attached a simple sample for your reference.
