A transaction object of type LEGACY has the following structure:

String
Address of this transaction sender.
to
String
(optional) The destination address of the message, left undefined for a contract-creation transaction.
value
Number | String | BN | BigNumber

gas
Number
The maximum amount of gas willing to pay for the transaction (unused gas is refunded).
gasPrice
Number
(optional) Gas price provided by the sender in peb. The gasPrice must be the same as the unitPrice set in the Klaytn node.
data
String
(optional) Either an ABI byte string containing the data of the function call on a contract, or in the case of a contract-creation transaction the initialization code.
nonce
Number
(optional) Integer of a nonce. If omitted, it will be set by caver-js via calling caver.klay.getTransactionCount.
Return Value
The callback will return the 32-byte transaction hash.
PromiEvent: A promise combined event emitter. Will be resolved when the transaction receipt is available. Additionally the following events are available:
  • "transactionHash" returns String: Is fired right after the transaction is sent and a transaction hash is available.
  • "receipt" returns Object: Is fired when the transaction receipt is available.
  • "error" returns Error: Is fired if an error occurs during sending. On an out-of-gas error, the second parameter is the receipt.
Example
const account = caver.klay.accounts.wallet.add('0x{private key}')
var code = "0x603d80600c6000396000f3007c01000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000006000350463c6888fa18114602d57005b6007600435028060005260206000f3";
// using the callback
caver.klay.sendTransaction({
from: account.address,
data: code // deploying a contracrt
}, function(error, hash){
...
});
// using the promise
caver.klay.sendTransaction({
from: account.address,
to: '0x11f4d0A3c12e86B4b5F39B213F7E19D048276DAe',
value: '1000000000000000'
})
.then(function(receipt){
...
});
// using the event emitter
caver.klay.sendTransaction({
from: account.address,

value: '1000000000000000'
})
.on('transactionHash', function(hash){
...
})
.on('receipt', function(receipt){
...
})
.on('error', console.error); // If an out-of-gas error, the second parameter is the receipt.
