The Channel component is a container component that displays the ChannelHeader, MessageList, NotificationList and MessageInput components. You can also provide the Thread component to use message threads.


<div id="root">
<!-- Main messages in the channel -->
<!-- Main messages in the channel -->
<!-- Thread messages in the channel -->
<!-- The name attribute selects the slot for the thread component inside channel -->
<stream-thread name="thread">
<stream-message-list mode="thread"></stream-message-list>
<stream-message-input mode="thread"></stream-message-input>
<!-- Thread messages in the channel -->

The Channel component doesn't do any settings, it's just displays its children components. The main purpose of this component is to provide the layout for the initial chat UI.
