    IDBOpenDBRequest

    This article is in need of a technical review.

    The IDBOpenDBRequest interface of the IndexedDB API provides access to the results of requests to open or delete databases (performed using IDBFactory.open and IDBFactory.deleteDatabase), using specific event handler attributes.

    Inherits from: IDBRequest

    Methods

    No methods.

    Event handlers

    IDBOpenDBRequest.onblocked
    The event handler for the blocked event. This event is triggered when the upgradeneeded event should be triggered because of a version change but the database is still in use (i.e. not closed) somewhere, even after the versionchange event was sent.
    IDBOpenDBRequest.onupgradeneeded
    The event handler for the upgradeneeded event, fired when a database of a bigger version number than the existing stored database is loaded.

    Example

    In the following example you can see the onupgradeneeded handler being used to update the database structure if a database with a higher version number is loaded. For a full working example, see our To-do Notifications app (view example live.)

    var db;
    
    // 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;
     
      // Run the displayData() function to populate the task list with all the to-do list data already in the IDB
      displayData();
    };
    
    // This event handles the event whereby a new version of the database needs to be created
    // Either one has not been created before, or a new version number has been submitted via the
    // window.indexedDB.open line above
    //it is only implemented in recent browsers
    DBOpenRequest.onupgradeneeded = function(event) {
      var db = event.target.result;
     
      db.onerror = function(event) {
        note.innerHTML += '<li>Error loading database.</li>';
      };
    
      // Create an objectStore for this database   
      var objectStore = db.createObjectStore("toDoList", { keyPath: "taskTitle" });
    
      // define what data items the objectStore will contain
        
      objectStore.createIndex("hours", "hours", { unique: false });
      objectStore.createIndex("minutes", "minutes", { unique: false });
      objectStore.createIndex("day", "day", { unique: false });
      objectStore.createIndex("month", "month", { unique: false });
      objectStore.createIndex("year", "year", { unique: false });
      objectStore.createIndex("notified", "notified", { unique: false });
    };
