No matter how much gas i provide this one function it failsas it runs out of gas, i have used a tool to check how much gas it is using and it is not overly high compared to other functions. I cant see the problem in the cde at all. I have even tried re ordering functions but no luck. The function is below someone please help me its one of the last things i need sorted . Thanks in advance.

function revokeAffiliate(address _addr) public onlyOwner returns(bool) {
    isAffiliate[_addr] = false;
    affiliateCodeToAddr[affiliateCodeOfAddr[_addr]] = address(0);
    emit AffiliatePartnershipRevoked(_addr, affiliateCodeOfAddr[_addr]);
    affiliateCodeOfAddr[_addr] = "No longer an affiliate partner";
    return true;
  • I have tried giving it more gas over and over in remix vm, i have tried using a tool to see the gas usage and match that then up it and still failing its making no sense to me Commented Apr 15, 2022 at 16:24
  • Looks like we ran into the same problem. ethereum.stackexchange.com/questions/126292/… I think this is a remix bug? Commented Apr 15, 2022 at 17:46
  • @destructioneth i managed to sort mine it was due to a code error good luck with yours Commented Apr 15, 2022 at 18:29

I think the gas is high because you are trying

affiliateCodeToAddr[affiliateCodeOfAddr[_addr]] = address(0). As, affiliateCodeToAddr mapping seems to have string as it's key.

Try to encode the string to bytes through abi.encode. Or, use some sort of indexes for each key. Like 0 could represent "No longer an affiliate partner", 1 could represent something arbitary, and so on.

  • Ye i managed to work that out aswell was a simple order error. Thanks for confirming this tho. Commented Apr 15, 2022 at 18:29
