Working With IndexedDB Part 3

Counting data, filter as you type and working with array properties

In this final article, we’re going to demonstrate some additional concepts that build upon the “full” demo we built in the last article. To be clear, you must be caught up on the series or this entry will be difficult to follow, so you may also want to check out part one.


Let’s start with something simple. Imagine you want to add paging to your data. How would you get a count of your data so you can properly handle that feature? Raymond Camden has already shown you how you can get all your data and certainly you could use that as a way to count data, but that requires fetching everything. If your local database is huge, that could be slow. Luckily the IndexedDB spec provides a much simpler way of doing it.
