IDBKeyRange.upper

The upper read-only property of the IDBKeyRange interface returns the upper bound of the key range.

Note: This feature is available in Web Workers.

Syntax

var upper = myKeyRange.upper

Value

The upper bound of the key range (can be any type.)

Example

The following example illustrates how you'd use a key range. Here we declare keyRangeValue = IDBKeyRange.upperBound("F", "W", true, true); — a range that includes everything between "F" and "W" but not including them — since both the upper and lower bounds have been declared as open (true). We open a transaction (using IDBTransaction) and an object store, and open a Cursor with IDBObjectStore.openCursor, declaring keyRangeValue as its optional key range value.

After declaring the key range, we log its upper property value to the console, which should appear as "W".

Note: For a more complete example allowing you to experiment with key range, have a look at our IDBKeyRange-example repo (view the example live too.)

function displayData() {
  var keyRangeValue = IDBKeyRange.bound("F", "W", true, true);
  console.log(keyRangeValue.upper);

  var transaction = db.transaction(['fThings'], 'readonly');
  var objectStore = transaction.objectStore('fThings');

  objectStore.openCursor(keyRangeValue).onsuccess = function(event) {
    var cursor = event.target.result;
      if(cursor) {
        var listItem = document.createElement('li');
        listItem.innerHTML = '<strong>' + cursor.value.fThing + '</strong>, ' + cursor.value.fRating;
        list.appendChild(listItem);  
          
        cursor.continue();
      } else {
        console.log('Entries all displayed.');
      }
    };
  };
