The deleteIndex function deletes an index on an object store in the indexeddb database.


  • objectStore:
    • A object store or a object store promise object
  • indexName
    • The name of the index or The name of the property on which the index is based


The function returns a promise object with 2 callbacks
  • Success callback
    • The index was deleted successfully
    • The first argument contains transaction.
    • The second argument contains the indexName
    • The third argument contains the object store
  • Error callback
    • Deleting the index failed
    • The argument object contains a custom error object.


  • InvalidStateError:
    • You are trying to delete an index in a non VERSION_CHANGE transaction.
  • NotFoundError
    • The index you are trying to delete wasn't found


linq2indexedDB.core.db("name", 1).then(
function (){},
function (){}
function (args){
    var transaction = args[0];
    if(args[1].type == 'upgradeneeded'){
         var objectStorePromise = linq2indexedDB.core.objectStore(transaction, "objectstore");
         linq2indexedDB.core.deleteIndex(objectStorePromise, "propertyname").then(success, error);

function success(args){
   var transaction= args[0];
   var indexname= args[1];
   var objectstore = args[2];
function error(args){
   var error= args;
