I am trying to use INLINE_ACTION_SENDER to use an action from another contract but get the following error.

error: use of undeclared identifier 'INLINE_ACTION_SENDER'

How do I include this macro in my code?

1 Answer 1


It's in action.hpp. Are you in dawn-v4.0.0?


This is the definition:


And this is an usage example:

 INLINE_ACTION_SENDER(eosio::token, transfer)( N(eosio.token), {payer,N(active)},
                                               { payer, N(eosio), quant, std::string("buy ram") } );


Please check this out before using INLINE_ACTION_SENDER: https://eosio.stackexchange.com/a/320/54

  • If anyone could explain the first agrument eosio::token that would be great. I am trying to send an action in another contract I created called helloworld however when I use helloworld as the first argument I get error: 'helloworld' does not refer to a value May 17, 2018 at 3:02
  • @MagicManXpress Good question. Try asking it as a new question so more people see it.
