Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-155) localStorage does not work with square brace notation
Date Thu, 05 Jan 2012 16:43:39 GMT


Colin Eberhardt commented on CB-155:

That's pretty nasty. I understand the lack of getter / setter is the underlying issue here.
However, if I take a fully functional web-app and place it within WP7 PhoneGap I get no warning
that my localStorage code is failing or why it fails. It took me a while to uncover this issue!

A couple of suggestions

1. When the PhoneGap application terminates, iterate the properties of localStorage and persist
at this point. It is not necessary to persist each time a property is set.
2. if you cannot do the above, at least provide a debug warning if the user has added properties
to localStorage!

> Currently the WP7 localStorage shim works if you use localStorage setItem / getItem methods,
however, it fails if you use the square brace notation:
> localStorage["key"] = someValue;
