How do you get the "estimated gas" from a "swapExactETHForTokens" function? As shown in metamask (before one can accept the purchase)

Binance Smart Chain (BSC)

From the pancakeswap contract (https://bscscan.com/address/0x10ed43c718714eb63d5aa57b78b54704e256024e#writeContract) in function number 10 you can buy tokens using "swapExactETHForTokens" and in function number 14 you can sell tokens using "swapExactTokens"

enter image description here

When you try to make a transaction when you want to buy or sell and it is not possible to proceed with that, then it appears that the gas fee expense is "0.3" or "0.4", which indicates that there is an error (and obviously one does not have to accept)

enter image description here

In this example it is because I try to buy tokens when there is NOT a defined price in the token / it has no liquidity in BNB, therefore the 0.3 bnb gas fee is displayed (error)

I have automated "buy" and "sell" through a BOT, which, using the functions mentioned above, helps me to carry out these processes. How do I get this value of the "estimated gas" as shown in the example in "Metamask"? but using web3 or ethers!

I tried "estimateGas" in ethers, but it returns a normal gas value, and not the same as in the example with metamask of 0.3 bnb

I have been seeing this question that is very similar to mine, although I did not understand the answer they gave it How to simulate buy / trade transactions on local without submitting them to blockchain?

Obviously I'm doing it wrong :( A help please !!

you can estimated the gas by the function would you like to use, like this:

 const estimatedGas = await contract.methods
      .yourFunction(withYourParams)
      .estimateGas({ from: address[0] })

now you should use the estimated gas in your function send:

await contract.methods
  .yourFunction(address)
  .send({ from: address[0], gas: estimatedGas })
