I'd like to get the event result in my UI.

Here is my contract

pragma solidity ^0.4.4;

 contract T2{
 uint public k;
 event CheckVal(uint val);
 function Test() returns (uint){        
  var temp=441;
  return temp;

and in the console I have this:

var eve=instance.CheckVal();
eve.watch(function(error, result){console.log( 

Every time I run


441 appears in the console, which is right. But I want to get the value (i.e. 441) in my UI, so I want to assign it to a variable.

Question: How to assign the output of event log to a variable?

  • assign result.args.val.toNumber() to your variable? – d9ngle Sep 25 '17 at 14:13

This question can have a lot of different answers based on what you want to do with the variables (like do you want to overwrite it, or store a growing list of variables that come in through your event?), but the simplest version would be like this.

var eve=instance.CheckVal(); var storedValue; eve.watch(function(error, result){ storedValue = result; });

And now if you log out storedValue, it will return 441.


It's as simple as this:

var eventOutput
var eve = instance.CheckVal();
eve.watch(function(error, result){
  eventOutput = result.args.val.toNumber()

Of course you need to use that output in some way in your frontend to make it visibile, e.g. by saving it in the state if this is a React app.
