I get the following error when a contract is invoking another injected contract:

Error: call revert exception [ See: https://links.ethers.org/v5-errors-CALL_EXCEPTION ] (method="helloWithDependency()", data="0x", errorArgs=null, errorName=null, errorSignature=null, reason=null, code=CALL_EXCEPTION, version=abi/5.6.2)

I'm not sure if the collaborating contract is injected corectly. Looking at the test output it seems that could be the problem (cause of zero address in test output). Anyway, this is the main contract:

// SPDX-License-Identifier: MIT
pragma solidity 0.8.13;


import "hardhat/console.sol";
import "./TestDependency.sol";

contract TestContract
{
    TestDependency private testDep;

    function setDependency(address dependencyAddress) external
    {
        testDep = TestDependency(dependencyAddress);
    }

    function getDependency() external view returns (address)
    {
        return address(testDep);
    }

    function internalHello() public view returns (string memory) {
        console.log("internal hello function called");
        return "internal hello";
    }

    function helloWithDependency() public view returns (string memory) {
        console.log("helloWithDependency function called");
        return testDep.getConstant();
    }
}

Dependency contract:

// SPDX-License-Identifier: MIT
pragma solidity 0.8.13;

import "hardhat/console.sol";

contract TestDependency
{
    function getConstant() public view returns (string memory) {
        console.log("getConstant function called");
        return "test123";
    }
}

And a test:

const { expect } = require("chai");
const { ethers } = require("hardhat");

describe("Test", function () {
  it("Test dependency", async function () {

    const TestContract = await ethers.getContractFactory("TestContract");
    const testContract = await TestContract.deploy();
    await testContract.deployed();

    const TestDependency = await ethers.getContractFactory("TestDependency");
    const testDependency = await TestDependency.deploy();
    await testDependency.deployed();

    testContract.setDependency(testDependency);

    console.log("testContract.address:" + testContract.address);
    console.log("testDep.address:" + testDependency.address);    
    console.log("testDep injected dependency address:" + testContract.getDependency());    

    
    let internalHello = await testContract.internalHello();
    console.log("internalHello response:" + internalHello);

    let helloResp = await testContract.helloWithDependency();
    console.log("helloWithDependency response:" + helloResp);
  });
});

I'm getting the following output:

npx hardhat test test/test-dependency-test.js

This is probably a newbie question, but I'm into solidity for a short time.

Thanks in advance, Marko

    You are not 'awaiting' in the call to setDependency(..).

you are not far from the answer, check your

testContract.setDependency(testDependency);

to be replaced with
await testContract.setDependency(testDependency.address);

  • Thanks, I missed the obvious. I have a more complicated situation from which I extracted this test code and it has another problem, but I'll open another question.
