Examples

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 = event => {
  note.innerHTML += '<li>Error loading database.</li>';
};

DBOpenRequest.onsuccess = event => {
  note.innerHTML += '<li>Database initialized.</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);
};
