I need to call a function that returns the uint value requested by the oracle from another contract function.

I am trying the next... but I think I am going by the bad way. Any solution for that?

The Caller contract code:

pragma solidity 0.5.1;
// SPDX-License-Identifier: UNLICENSED

contract ETHPriceContract{ function getETHPrice() public view returns(bytes32);} 

contract CallerPriceRequest{
    uint256 public price;

    ETHPriceContract internal ETHPriceOracle;
    function initETHPrice(address ETHPriceAddress) public {
        ETHPriceOracle = ETHPriceContract( ETHPriceAddress );
    function getETHPrice() public{
    function CallerFulfill(bytes32 _requestId, uint256 _price) public{
        price = _price;

The Oracle requester contract code:

pragma solidity ^0.5.1;

import "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/smartcontractkit/chainlink/develop/evm-contracts/src/v0.5/ChainlinkClient.sol";

// SPDX-License-Identifier: UNLICENSED

contract CallerPriceRequest{ function CallerFulfill(bytes32 _requestId, uint256 _price) public; }

contract ChainlinkRequestETHPrice is ChainlinkClient {
    address public CallerAddress = 0x5592675bf651ED82E30F78D5ebAfb1f7F5D851c7;
    uint256 public price;
    address private oracle;
    bytes32 private jobId;
    uint256 private fee;
    CallerPriceRequest internal Caller;
    constructor() public {
        Caller = CallerPriceRequest( CallerAddress );
        oracle = 0x2f90A6D021db21e1B2A077c5a37B3C7E75D15b7e;
        jobId = "29fa9aa13bf1468788b7cc4a500a45b8";
        fee = 0.1 * 10 ** 18; // 0.1 LINK

    function getETHPrice() public returns (bytes32 requestId){
        Chainlink.Request memory req = buildChainlinkRequest(jobId, CallerAddress, Caller.CallerFulfill.selector);
        req.add("get", "https://min-api.cryptocompare.com/data/price?fsym=ETH&tsyms=USD");//{"USD":1797.12}
        req.add("path", "USD");
        req.addInt("times", 100);
        return sendChainlinkRequestTo(oracle, req, fee);

The buildChainlinkRequest takes 3 parameters:

  1. JobId
  2. Callback Address
  3. Function to callback to

Add your caller contract to be the callback contract. Like so:

In the calling contract, pass the address of the callback address and the callback function. You could also just hardcode the addresses in the calling contract.

function getETHPrice() public{
        ETHPriceOracle.getETHPrice(address(this), this.CallerFulfill.selector);

Then, use those parameters in the calling function:

 function getETHPrice(address callBackContract, bytes4 functionSelector) public returns (bytes32 requestId){
        Chainlink.Request memory req = buildChainlinkRequest(jobId, callBackContract, functionSelector);
// code here
  • Thank you Patrick. Works in basics. How can I send parameters to the "CallerFulfill()" from the caller "getETHPrice() "?

  • What are you trying to send? typically the chainlink node is going to be the one calling that function. Jun 5, 2021 at 16:36
  • I need to request the ETHPrice from Caller and send my equivalent token amount to an address (msg.sender) and a fee amount to other address sent to the getETHPrice(address) function. I want to make all in one call.

  • In your function getETHPrice() public{ ETHPriceOracle.getETHPrice(address(this), this.CallerFulfill.selector); } function, you can just pass more parameters to the callee contract, and have that function pass variables to the fulfill function. Jun 5, 2021 at 17:42
