Queries

Queries are requests that do not require network consensus. Queries are processed only by the single node the request is sent to. Below is a list of network queries by service.

Get Query Cost

A query that returns the cost of a query prior to submitting the query to network node for processing. If the cost of the query greater than the default max query payment (1 hbar) you can use setMaxQueryPayment(<hbar>) to change the default.

Java
//Create the query request
AccountBalanceQuery query = new AccountBalanceQuery()
     .setAccountId(accountId);

//Get the cost of the query
long queryCost = query.getCost(client);

System.out.println("The account balance query cost is " +queryCost);

//v1.3.2
JavaScript
//Create the query request
const query = new AccountBalanceQuery()
     .setAccountId(accountId);

//Get the cost of the query
const queryCost = await query.getCost(client);

console.log("The account balance query cost is " +queryCost);
