Using Remix, I created the Hello contract from the docs and successfully published it in the Kovan testnet (using the MetaMask plugin).

Also, from Remix "Contracts" tab, I successfully sent "setGreeting" and "greet" messages to my contract, by clicking a button.

Now, I want to let a friend use the same contract using the same convenient GUI of Remix. To see how it works, I opened Remix in an incognito window. I went to the "Contracts" tab.

EDIT: I clicked the button named "At Address" and entered the address of my contract, but got this error:

Apparently, Remix opens with the default contract ("ballot") and tries to find the "winningProposal" of my contract. But, my contract does not have this field since it is a different contract ("Hello")!

Does it mean that I have to send my friend the entire source-code of my contract, to put in Remix?

Is there another way to easily let my friend play with my contract?

  • But I want to let my friend use the contract that I already created... What should my friend to in order to connect to my contract? Commented May 16, 2017 at 9:41
  • You could share the code+address if they want to use remix or they use myetherwallet.com/#contracts they needs the abi (you find it in remix)+ the address or you creat a webpage using web3js and share the url with them

    The first solution (sharing the code+address) worked well for me. Thanks! Commented May 17, 2017 at 13:38
