Once a transaction is completed on Ethereum Wallet then we can see the address of the transaction in our geth console : [ Tx("{txn address}") to: "{contract_address}" ]before mining starts. Pic attached for reference.

enter image description here

How can I capture that address and the address of contract which is shown just along transaction address in any format possible so that I can show the transaction address in UI ?

First copy and assign the transaction hash to a variable like so:

var tx = "0x123456789abcdef"

Then get the transaction recept(assigned to variable info).

var info = web3.eth.getTransactionReceipt(tx);

Press info to display the full info of the transaction, including the transaction addresses.

  • Where should I " press info " how can I see the contents of info in console or in UI ? Commented Jul 24, 2016 at 10:28
  • In the console. But you can also use a block explorer like etherchain.org.

You can get the transactions in each block using web3.eth.getblock(blocknumber). To know about the contract address using the transaction hash, you can use web3.eth.getTransactionReceipt(Transaction_Hash). You can display all these details on UI using web3 API and JSON-RPC.
