getChannel does not exist for interaction.options

Howdy, I'm trying to get a text channel from a command channel option, but I'm getting the error that 'getChannel' property doesn't exist even though it appears as a method in the docs and I've seen it in other people's code. I'm using the typescript complete example bot as a base. Npm ls returns discord.js 14.14.1
ts:32:51 - error TS2339: Property 'getChannel' does not exist on type 'Omit<CommandInteractionOptionResolver<CacheType>, "getMessage" | "getFocused" | "getMentionable" | "getRole" | "getAttachment" | ... 6 more ... | "getSubcommand">'.

const channelOption = interaction.options.getChannel('channel', true);

const channelOption = interaction.options.getChannel('channel', true);

discord.js is a powerful Node.js module that allows you to interact with the Discord API very easily. It takes a much more object-oriented approach than most other JS Discord libraries, making your bot's code significantly tidier and easier to comprehend.
Solution:
Type it as a ChatInputCommandInteraction. Your current type is ambiguous as to wether it's chat input or context menu.

Thanks! Makes sense now that you told me and the command is working fine. I wonder if there's anyway I could have figured that out from the docs for future reference? For example, the page the ChatlnputCommandlnteraction options doesn't have getChannel, so I'm just trying to figure out how I would read this. I guess just more exposure to the code. Sorry if dumb question but am kinda new to this https://discord.js.org/docs/packages/discord.js/14.14.1/ChatInputCommandInteraction:Class#options

not sure tbh. For Sapphire we re-export it as Command.ChatInputsomething and we do document it in the sapphire guide
