thanks for your tutorial, i have a question regarding the inline keyboard, I am building a Geodata collector bot and I want to use inline keyboard but I'm not able to use the request_location for acquiring the location of the user because I think it just works on the keyboard not inline keyboard. and since I want to use the callback in my buttons I'm kinda stuck and confused that how I could manage this. if you can help me I appreciate it.

//buttons for getting the location
bot.action("POS-PCdF", (ctx) => {
ctx.deleteMessage();
console.log(ctx.from);
bot.telegram.sendMessage(ctx.chat.id, "Can we access your location?", {
reply_markup: {
keyboard: [
[
{
text: "Access my location",
request_location: true,
callback_data: "Access_my_loc",
},
{ text: "Cancel", callback_data: "PCdF" },
],
],
},
});
});

//the main menu that I want to use in the callback
bot.action("PCdF", (ctx) => {
ctx.deleteMessage();
ctx.telegram.sendMessage(
ctx.chat.id,
"Share with us the problems about Parco Campo di Fiori!",
{
reply_markup: {
inline_keyboard: [
[
{ text: "Pictures", callback_data: "PIC-PCdF" },
{ text: "Location", callback_data: "POS-PCdF" },
],
[
{ text: "write to us", callback_data: "TEXT-PCdF" },
{ text: "Go back Home", callback_data: "go-back" },
],
],
},
}
);
});
