Description Ms2ger 2012-03-25 14:02:59 UTC
enum TransactionMode { "readonly", "readwrite" };
interface IDBDatabase : EventTarget {
  IDBTransaction transaction (any storeNames, optional TransactionMode mode);

would do it. This could also have the benefit that you can remove "The value for the mode parameter is invalid.", which doesn't actually explain when the value is invalid.

I don't think we can do this until ReSpec supports it. The spec as it's written now has the correct normative requirements so this is essentially a editorial issue.

Robin, are there any plans to add support for enums to ReSpec?
Comment 2 Joshua Bell 2013-02-28 22:45:15 UTC
Spec updated:

* TransactionMode enum declared using WebIDL, definitions of "readonly", "readwrite", "versionchange" incorporated

* IDBDatabase.transaction() and IDBDatabaseSync.transaction() updated in WebIDL to reference TransactionMode enum and prose to drop explicit references to throwing TypeError.

* IDBTransaction.mode and IDBTransactionSync.mode updated to reference TransactionMode enum
