How to send a VET transaction using Connex


In this guide, I will show you how to send a simple VET transaction using an HTML form and Connex.

Connex is the standard interface to connect VeChain apps with VeChain blockchain and user. Connex is a set of well-designed APIs for developers, with injected Connex Object in web applications they can easily build decentralized applications.

We will start by creating a basic HTML form that allows the user the enter a certain amount of VET to send to an address.

<div class="form-group">
    <label class="form-label">Amount of VET:</label>
    <div class="form-input">
        <input type="text" class="form-inputfield" id="amount" value="10000">
        <button onclick="transaction('0xBea98D7796261c997a402A251b13E524330A8323');">Submit</button>
        <div id="error" class="error"></div>

Now we add the Javascript to your website which will be executed once we click the Submit button:

function transaction(address) { 

    //warn the user if no Connex is found
    if (!window.connex) { 
        document.getElementById("error").innerHTML = "Sorry, you need to open this page using Sync or the VeChain mobile wallet." return 

    //check to make sure the entered amount is an integer
    if (!Number.isInteger(amount) == false) { 
        document.getElementById("error").innerHTML = "Sorry please enter a round amount of VET." return 

    //convert VET amount to the required format
    amount = document.getElementById("amount").value;
    vetamount = "0x" + (amount * 1e18).toString(16); 

    //create a comment to be displayed to the user when he signs the transaction.
    comment = "send " + amount + " VET"; 

    //setup the signing service
    const signingService = connex.vendor.sign('tx') 

    //request a new transaction

        to: address, 
        value: vetamount, 
        data: '0x', 
        comment: comment 

    ]).then(result => {console.log(result)}) 


And you are done!

Visit your HTML page from any Connex powered browser (Sync or the VeChainThor mobile wallet) and it should work.
