Use this hook to get your contract instance by providing the contract name. It enables you to interact with your contract methods. For reading data or sending transactions, it's recommended to use useScaffoldReadContract and useScaffoldWriteContract.

const { data: yourContract } = useScaffoldContract({
contractName: "YourContract",
// Returns the greeting and can be called in any function, unlike useScaffoldReadContract
await yourContract?.read.greeting();

// Used to write to a contract and can be called in any function
import { useWalletClient } from "wagmi";

const { data: walletClient } = useWalletClient();
const { data: yourContract } = useScaffoldContract({
contractName: "YourContract",
const setGreeting = async () => {
// Call the method in any function
await yourContract?.write.setGreeting(["the greeting here"]);

This example uses the useScaffoldContract hook to obtain a contract instance for the YourContract smart contract.
