I created a contract, and deployed it into my private blockchain, as you can see I use mapping and dynamically allocated array. When I am trying to add a domain by 'addDomain' method with remix web ide it works fine, by when I am trying to use 'addDomain' method with nodejs its return an address(Big Number) as return value, but actually, when I use 'getDoamin' its seems that the transaction is not approved or something like this.


pragma solidity ^0.4.0;

contract addressRecord {
    struct  Record {
        address owner;
        uint score;

    mapping (string => Record) records;
    string[] records_arr;

    function addDomain(string _domain, uint _score) {
        if (records[_domain].owner != address(0x0)
        && records[_domain].owner != msg.sender) { return; }

        records[_domain] = Record(msg.sender, _score);
        records_arr.length += 1;
        records_arr[records_arr.length-1] = _domain;

    function getDomain(string _domain) constant returns(uint) {
        return records[_domain].score;

    function changeScore(string _domain, address _to) {
        require(records[_domain].owner == msg.sender);
        records[_domain].owner = _to;

    function domainsCount() constant returns (uint) {
        return records_arr.length;


const Web3 = require('web3');
const web3 = new Web3(new Web3.providers.HttpProvider("http://localhost:8545"));

const abi = require('./abi.json');
const contractAbi = web3.eth.contract(abi);

const contractAddr = "0x0014b44b785769e28b5cb097c1329784c96333f6"; // replace this
const walletAddr = "0xca1c9203f10f9b918d8630a540d85456dfb8b760";   // replace this

const myContract = contractAbi.at(contractAddr);

web3.personal.unlockAccount(walletAddr, "12345678");
var myArgs = process.argv.slice(2);
console.log(parseInt(myArgs[1], 10));
console.log(myContract.addDomain(myArgs[0], parseInt(myArgs[1], 10), { from: walletAddr, to: contractAddr }));
console.log(myContract.getDomain(myArgs[0], {from: walletAddr, to: contractAddr}));

Nodejs output

{ [String: '0'] s: 1, e: 0, c: [ 0 ] }

Although it's returning something that looks suspiciously like the 10 that we're expecting, this might help it wait for the transaction to be mined: https://gist.github.com/xavierlepretre/88682e871f4ad07be4534ae560692ee6

When you're sure it's mined, carry on like:

  return myContract.getDomain(myArgs[....); // return a promise
.then(function(score) { // your function returns the score
  console.log(score.toString(10); // make it human-readable

Hope it helps.

  • Actually, getDomain works well. The problem is that, addDomain dont writing into the blockchain. Sep 3, 2017 at 16:10
  • Make sure it the same address that deployed the contract because add Domain is designed to reject txns from everyone else. Then, be sure to wait for the txn to be mined. The first callback will give you a txn receipt indicating the txn has been sent, not mined. You use that receipt to wait for it. Sep 3, 2017 at 17:31
