Collects a single component interaction that passes the filter. The Promise will reject if the time expires.

Examples:
// Collect a message component interaction
const filter = (interaction) => interaction.customId === 'button' && interaction.user.id === 'someId';
channel.awaitMessageComponent({ filter, time: 15_000 })
  .then(interaction => console.log(`${interaction.customId} was clicked!`))
  .catch(console.error);

Similar to createMessageCollector but in promise form. Resolves with a collection of messages that pass the specified filter.

Examples:
// Await !vote messages
const filter = m => m.content.startsWith('!vote');
// Errors: ['time'] treats ending because of the time limit as an error
channel.awaitMessages({ filter, max: 4, time: 60_000, errors: ['time'] })
  .then(collected => console.log(collected.size))
  .catch(collected => console.log(`After a minute, only ${collected.size} out of 4 voted.`));

createMessageCollector() : MessageCollector

Examples:
// Create a message collector

collector.on('collect', message => console.log(`Collected ${message.content}`));
collector.on('end', collected => console.log(`Collected ${collected.size} items`));

createMessageComponentCollector() : InteractionCollector

Creates a component interaction collector.

Examples:
