    IDBDatabase.name

    This article is in need of a technical review.

    The name property of the IDBDatabase interface is a DOMString that contains the name of the connected database.

    Syntax

    db.name

    Value

    A DOMString containing the name of the connected database.

    Example

    This example shows a database connection being opened, the resulting IDBDatabase object being stored in a db variable, and the name property then being logged. For a full example, see our To-do Notifications app (view example live).

    // Let us open our database
    var DBOpenRequest = window.indexedDB.open("toDoList", 4);
    
    // these two event handlers act on the database being opened successfully, or not
    DBOpenRequest.onerror = function(event) {
      note.innerHTML += '<li>Error loading database.</li>';
    };
     
    DBOpenRequest.onsuccess = function(event) {
      note.innerHTML += '<li>Database initialised.</li>';
        
      // store the result of opening the database in the db variable. This is used a lot below
      db = DBOpenRequest.result;
    
      // This line will log the name of the database, which should be "toDoList"
      console.log(db.name);
    };
