The sample is now fixed in the Editor's draft:


 var request = indexedDB.open('AddressBook', '15');
 request.onsuccess = function(evt) {...};
 request.onerror = function(evt) {...};

Thanks for the catch.

Subject: [IndexedDB] (editorial) outdated example in "3.2.1 The IDBRequest Interface" section


The example shown at the top of the "3.2.1 The IDBRequest Interface" section is outdated.

The first line :

var request = indexedDB.open('AddressBook', 'Address Book');

shows a call to indexedDB.open method with an invalid second parameter, which would fire an error (NS_ERROR_DOM_INDEXEDDB_NON_TRANSIENT_ERR).

An optional version number (type "unsigned long long") is indeed expected as second parameter, but the example provides a string instead.

It was possible a long time ago to provide a "description" as second parameter (http://www.w3.org/TR/2010/WD-IndexedDB-20100819/#requests) but it's no longer the case.

Kind Regards,

Maxime Réty
