StaticStateChangeError

Represents an invalid bytecode/contract error that occurs when a state-changing operation is attempted in a static context. This error is typically encountered when a contract attempts to modify the state during a static call.

Static state change errors can occur due to:

  • Attempting to modify the state in a static call.
  • Executing state-changing operations in a read-only context.
  • Bugs in the smart contract code leading to unintended state changes.

To debug a static state change error:

  1. Review Contract Logic: Ensure that state-changing operations are not executed in static calls or read-only contexts.
  2. Check Function Modifiers: Verify that the function modifiers and visibility settings are correctly applied to prevent state changes in static contexts.
  3. Use TEVM Tracing: Utilize TEVM tracing to step through the contract execution and identify where the state change is attempted in a static context.
  4. Inspect Contract Code: Manually inspect the contract code to ensure that state changes are correctly controlled and executed only in appropriate contexts.

Example

import { StaticStateChangeError } from '@tevm/errors'
try {
// Some operation that can throw a StaticStateChangeError
} catch (error) {
if (error instanceof StaticStateChangeError) {
console.error(error.message);
// Handle the static state change error
}
}

Param

A human-readable error message.

Param

Additional parameters for the BaseError.
