Can't find any good documentation on creating a raw transaction with contract data in ethers.js. The equivalent in web3 is adding the encodeABI on the data property. Any guidance on this?

This isn't working:

data = myContract.interface.functions.myFunction(value);
const tx = {

It doesn't seem to recognize this is a function (even though i see the data property there).


You can use the populateTransaction mechanism documented here: https://docs.ethers.io/v5/api/contract/contract/

So specifically, that'd be:

const data = await myContract.populateTransaction.myFunction(value);
