Version

An instance of a Version class can only be returned from the Dexie.version() method. Use it to define the schema and any upgrader function for that specific version.

Sample

var db = new Dexie("FriendsAndPetsDatabase");
db.version(2).stores({
  friends: "++id,name,birthdate,sex",
  pets: "++id,name,kind"
}).upgrade (function (trans) {
  var YEAR = 365 * 24 * 60 * 60 * 1000;
  trans.friends.each (function (friend, cursor) {
    friend.birthdate = new Date(Date.now() - (friend.age * YEAR));
    delete friend.age;
    cursor.update (friend);
  });
});
// Always keep the declarations previous versions as long as there might be users having them running.
db.version(1).stores({
  friends: "++id,name,age,sex",
  pets: "++id,name,kind"
});
db.open();
