# Trait frame_support::traits::StorePreimage

source · ```
pub trait StorePreimage: QueryPreimage {
const MAX_LENGTH: usize;
fn note(bytes: Cow<'_, [u8]>) -> Result<Hash, DispatchError>;
fn unnote(hash: &Hash) { ... }
fn bound<T: Encode>(t: T) -> Result<Bounded<T>, DispatchError> { ... }
}
```

## Expand description

A interface for managing preimages to hashes on chain.

Note that this API does not assume any underlying user is calling, and thus does not handle any preimage ownership or fees. Other system level logic that uses this API should implement that on their own side.

## Required Associated Constants

source#### const MAX_LENGTH: usize

#### const MAX_LENGTH: usize

The maximum length of preimage we can store.

This is the maximum length of the *encoded* value that can be passed to `bound`

.

## Required Methods

## Provided Methods

source#### fn unnote(hash: &Hash)

#### fn unnote(hash: &Hash)

Attempt to clear a previously noted preimage. Exactly the same as `unrequest`

but is
provided for symmetry.

source#### fn bound<T: Encode>(t: T) -> Result<Bounded<T>, DispatchError>

#### fn bound<T: Encode>(t: T) -> Result<Bounded<T>, DispatchError>

Convert an otherwise unbounded or large value into a type ready for placing in storage.

The result is a type whose `MaxEncodedLen`

is 131 bytes.

NOTE: Once this API is used, you should use either `drop`

or `realize`

.
The value is also noted using `Self::note`

.
