I have openzeppelin's standard ERC721 contract.

Below is the helper function that returns bytes data that will be used for some purpose.

async function getErc721SafeTransferFromTransaction(tokenInstance, args) {
    const txData = tokenInstance.interface.encodeFunctionData("safeTransferFrom",args);
    return txData;
  }

When I call that function with deployed ERC721 instance and [from,to,tokenId] as an argument, I get the following error.


     Error: multiple matching functions (argument="name", value="safeTransferFrom", code=INVALID_ARGUMENT, version=abi/5.6.4)
      at Logger.makeError (node_modules/@ethersproject/logger/src.ts/index.ts:261:28)

Seems like ethers.js is having issue is with safeTransferFrom as openzeppelin's standard ERC721 has overloaded safeTransferFrom method, one with data argument and one without. How can I solve this and get the encoded data?

You are missing the parameters, as it got 2 function with the same name but with different parameter lengths.

  1. in case you want to call without data.
const txData = tokenInstance.interface.encodeFunctionData("safeTransferFrom(address, address, uint256)",args);
  1. in case you want to call with data.
const txData = tokenInstance.interface.encodeFunctionData("safeTransferFrom(address, address, uint256, bytes)",args);
