contract Test {
    constructor() public payable {

contract MyContract {
    constructor() public payable {
        Test test = new Test();

How do I pay the Test contract's constructor?

  • You should describe how you are deploying it! – goodvibration May 28 '20 at 13:47
  • from the contract – Noah Bergh May 28 '20 at 14:28
  • You're deploying the contract from itself? Very nice! Please explain exactly what off-chain tool you are using (e.g., web3.js, web3.py, Remix IDE, etc). And please share the relevant code along with this explanation! – goodvibration May 28 '20 at 14:45
  • Im using web3.js I know how to pay the first constructor but not the second – Noah Bergh May 28 '20 at 14:57

If you want to pass exactly what you've received:

Test test = (new Test).value(msg.value)();

If you want to pass, for example, half of what you've received:

Test test = (new Test).value(msg.value / 2)();

If you want to pass, for example, a constant value of 100 wei:

Test test = (new Test).value(100)();

Of course, you'll need msg.value >= 100 in order for that one to work.
