Re: Proposed change to sendtoaddress API call

What happens when we desire to return additional information, beyond tx-id?

For the sake of future compatibility, it seems like the flag should present a choice between returning (a) just the current ‘sent’, or (b) a JSON map containing tx-id, and perhaps other things.

A ‘gettransaction tx_id’ API call is on my short list.

What do other folks think; should sendtoaddress …. true return just the tx_id, and you have to make another API call to get details if you need them?
Or should it return an Array?

It’s too soon to start junking up the API for backward compatibility at all costs.

Just return “<txid>”.
