The method recalls the transaction data after you enter its hash

How to Use the eth_getTransactionByHash Method


DATA, 32 Bytes - a transaction’s hash params:


What you receive

Object - An object of transaction, or returns null in case no transaction was found:

  • blockHash: DATA, 32 Bytes - the block’s hash where this transaction was located. returns null in case of a pending log.

  • blockNumber: the number of a block related to the chosen transaction. null when its pending.

  • from: 20 Bytes - the sender’s address.

  • to: 20 Bytes - the receiver’s address. returns null if a transaction relates to smart contract creation.

  • gasPrice: gas price that the sender did provide. represented in Wei.

  • gas: gas amount that the sender provided.

  • input: which data was sent along the transaction.

  • hash: 32 Bytes - the transaction’s hash.

  • nonce: how many transactions were sent from one address before the current one.

  • transactionIndex: integer of the transactions index position in the block. returns null in case of a pending log.

  • value: value represented in Wei.

  • v: QUANTITY - ECDSA recovery id

  • r: DATA, 32 Bytes - ECDSA signature r

  • s: DATA, 32 Bytes - ECDSA signature s


Here is a typical appliance example.
