Since v1.2




indexOrPrimKey: StringName of an index or primary key registered in Version.stores()
keyKey to compare with. The key MUST be a Number, String, Date or Array instance. Booleans are not accepted as valid keys

Return Value



Queries the collection for all valid values that does not match given value. Note that you will only find values that are valid indexedDB keys.

Given the following data:

{ id: 1, shoeSize: 9 }
{ id: 2, shoeSize: 10 }
{ id: 3, shoeSize: 11 }
{ id: 4 }
{ id: 5, shoeSize: null }
{ id: 6, shoeSize: "abc" }
{ id: 7, shoeSize: false }
{ id: 8, shoeSize: ["a","b","c"]}

And the following query:

db.people.where('shoeSize').notEqual(10).each(function(x) {
    console.log("Found: " + JSON.stringify(x));

We get the following result:

Found: "{id:1,shoeSize:9}"
Found: "{id:3,shoeSize:11}"
Found: "{id:6,shoeSize:\"abc\"}"
Found: "{id:8,shoeSize:[\"a\",\"b\",\"c\"]}"

Note that number 4 was not included in the result because it didn’t have a valid shoeSize key so it’s not indexed. A valid key is a key of type string, number, Date or Array<string | number | Date>. Booleans, null and undefined are NOT valid indexedDB keys.
