My contract is:

   contract changeName{
    string customerName;

    function changeName(string _customerName)

    function getName() returns(string)

         return customerName;

In Javascript(meteor.js):

//contractAddress= block address where contract is deployed
//AbiArray : When contract is compiled 
var myContract= web3.eth.contract(AbiArray).at(contractAddress);

//getting block address here
//How to get function return value

  • Can you kindly reformat the question using Edit as now it has some formatting errors making it hard to read. – Mikko Ohtamaa Mar 15 '17 at 11:30

you could define the get function as constant and in your js code use :

 var contractInstance = MyContract.at('contract_address');
  var variable= contractInstance.getName(); 
  • Thank You ! But I'm getting an exception : The metamask web3 object does not support synchronous method like eht_call without callback parameter. – Avinash Vazratkar Mar 16 '17 at 9:17
  • Is there any alternative to metamask? I mean how to connect with Ethereum Blockchain without metamask? – Avinash Vazratkar Mar 16 '17 at 9:32
  • Use mist instead of metamask – Badr Bellaj Mar 16 '17 at 12:26

Try this option:

var contractInstance = MyContract.at('contract_address');
var variable= contractInstance.getName(function(err, res){
    console.log(err); // Error object
    console.log(res); // Result object
    console.log(res.c[0]); // Your "customerName"
