      execute {
        let addr: Address = to
        let value: UFix64 = amount
      }
    }
  `,
  sdk.args([
    sdk.arg(to, t.Address),

  ]),
])

Exist but not supported

The following, while technically possible, are impracticle. We strongly recommend not using them as arguments for transactions or scripts.

Void

import * as t from "@onflow/types"

sdk.build([
  sdk.args([ sdk.arg(null, t.Void) ])
])

Event

import * as t from "@onflow/types"

sdk.build([
  sdk.args([
    sdk.arg(
      {
        fields: [{name: "wasTheCodeClean?", value: "absolutely"}],
      },
      t.Event("0xABC123DEF456.JeffWroteSomeJS", [{value: t.String}]),
    )
  ])
])

Reference

import * as t from "@onflow/types"

sdk.build([
  sdk.args([ sdk.arg({address: "0xABC123DEF456", type: "0xABC123DEF456.CryptoKitty"}, t.Reference) ])
])

Struct

import * as t from "@onflow/types"

sdk.build([
  sdk.args([
    sdk.arg(
      {
        fields: [{name: "CryptoKitty_name", value: "Lil' Jimmy The CryptoKitty"}],
      },
      t.Struct("0xABC123DEF456.CryptoKitty", [{value: t.String}])
    )
  ])
])

Resource

import * as t from "@onflow/types"

sdk.build([
  sdk.args([
    sdk.arg(
      {
        fields: [{name: "Jeffysaur_Name", value: "Mr Jeff The Dinosaur"}],
      }
      t.Resource("0x01.Jeffysaur", [{value: t.String}]),
    )
  ])
