This method takes the name of the object store as well as a parameter object that lets us define various configuration properties for the object store. It can be used to store data on the client-side and with Web Storage to offer to opportunity to take applications offline and to reduce server round-trips for data retrieval.

It will generate a key automatically for you but you can also pass your own key for a stored value if you want. In the example, the openCursor function is called tutoial the objectStore. In this section, we describe how to create, read, update, and delete data. Let’s look at an example:.

For example, use IndexedDB in offline web application scenarios and when you get back online update a backend server using Ajax. Object stores can be thought of as similar to tables in SQL databases and should contain objects of the same “type” not JavaScript data type.

At the end of logItemswe return cursor. We have left out the optional callback function in this first example to keep things simple. Read Write Errors Member 7-Mar 9: If you specify the array of store names, then you get permission to perform database operations on multiple stores.
