Return value

An integer.

Example

The following function adds three data items to the local storage for the current domain, then returns the number of items in the storage:

function populateStorage() {
  localStorage.setItem('bgcolor', 'yellow');
  localStorage.setItem('font', 'Helvetica');
  localStorage.setItem('image', 'cats.png');

  localStorage.length; // should return 3
}
