Access To Messagebar Instance

If you use automatic initalization to init Messagebar (with init={true} prop) and need to use its Methods and Properties you can access its initialized instance by calling .instance() component's method. For example:

<Messagebar bind:this={component}>...</Messagebar>

<script>
  let component;

  // to get instance in some method
  component.instance()
</script>

Examples

Here is how the full example of Messages page where it can be used together with Messages:

<Page>
  <Navbar title="Messages"></Navbar>

  <Messagebar
    placeholder={placeholder}
    bind:this={messagebarComponent}
    attachmentsVisible={attachmentsVisible}
    sheetVisible={sheetVisible}
    value={messageText}
    onInput={(e) => messageText = e.target.value}
  >
    <a class="link icon-only" slot="inner-start" on:click={() => sheetVisible = !sheetVisible}>
      <Icon
        ios="f7:camera_fill"
        aurora="f7:camera_fill"
        md="material:camera_alt"

      <Icon
        ios="f7:arrow_up_circle_fill"
        aurora="f7:arrow_up_circle_fill"
        md="material:send"
      />
    </a>
    <MessagebarAttachments>
      {#each attachments as image, index (index)}
        <MessagebarAttachment
