Hi ,

I am trying to figure out what is the data-hex in stream publish or any other function?

Can you please refer me to something which will be helpful, is that some data converted into hexa-decimal?

This is how the raw data is stored. sometimes its readable.. like what you put into the stream.

The hex you find at the top of a json call under a property named HEX is the raw hex of JSON. Copy your transaction hex and paste it into a hex to ascii decoder - something like

You wont need this usually as the raw hex is already the json you get back (with a few differences)

Your custom fields and data you add to transactions are also encoded to hex and you can do the same thing, converting it.

consider the following:

  "type": "stream",
            "name": "Item",
            "streamref": "20-265-54584",
            "publishers": ["1DpvKsVyF37NMGhwowenKKrRT8Hi92HZZT8t9J"],
            "key": "Property",
            "data": "7b22746f6b656e223a2250412d636465633264723230333261663134227d"


the data can be transformed back to what you put in.
