Solidity casting address to address payable

0 votes

I have written a solidity program in which one function has an address that I have to send tokens to. I read somewhere that to send tokens to an address, it should be declared as payable. I am not able to figure out how to do it. I tried direct casting:

address payable variable_name;

It is not working for me. Please help.

I don’t see why direct casting isn’t working, maybe some permission issues. Anyways, you can cast address using different ways. Try this:

address addr = 0x****;
address payable wallet = address(uint160(addr));

Let me know if it works.

According to Solidity documentation:

"Implicit conversions from address payable to address are allowed, whereas conversions from address to address payable are not possible (the only way to perform such a conversion is by using an intermediate conversion to uint160)."

Thus,  address(uint160(addr)); works fine!
