method.watch()

Use watch to listen for events emitted by a smart contract method. You can define functions to be executed when certain events are caught.

Usage

let contract = await tronWeb.contract.at('contractAddress'); 
contract.eventMethod().watch((err, event) => {
    if (err){
    return console.error('Error with "method" event:', err);
  }
  if (event) { 
      // some function
  }
});

Parameters
No need to pass parameters

Returns
Object

Example

//Example 1
async function triggercontract(){
    try {
        let instance = await tronWeb.contract().at('TQQg4EL8o1BSeKJY4MJ8TB8XK7xufxFBvK');
      
        instance.Transfer().watch((err, eventResult) => {
            if (err) {
                return console.error('Error with "method" event:', err);
            }
            if (eventResult) { 
                console.log('eventResult:',eventResult);
            }
          });

        let res = await instance.transfer('TWbcHNCYzqAGbrQteKnseKJdxfzBHyTfuh',500).send({
            feeLimit:100_000_000,
            callValue:0,
            shouldPollResponse:true
        });
        console.log(res);

    } catch (error) {
        console.log(error);
    }
}
triggercontract();
