Local storage, can I used to store multiple values

I need to store a list a values each time. In other words can I add new values each time and they will be stored inside the local storage. for example I need to save a new location with different name. unfortunately the previous information get overridden.


Yes you can. It should be the Local Storage not Local DB.

Show your block to see why you have this overwriting issue.

Hi there,

You might find this easier if you use stored variables in your app.

You could also save all of these details as properties of an Object, and have a list of Objects in your app.

It also looks like your Get blocks retrieve a single item of the list at a time (for each item j in list…) but then treat this item j as a list. What are you hoping to do here? What do you see when these blocks execute?

Please bader_mouti. in your code you used

User-Id OR Username as a key, is that means there will be two keys?, what if I have five inputs like:
1-User Name
3- Mobile
4- Job
5- Salary

in that case should i use:
User-Name OR Address OR Mobile OR job OR Salary


Hi Jane, please clarify, something to me, my understand is that if we use localstorage, the information will stay on my Mobile and I can’t share it, they only for displaying certain information about my system, and mostly used for setting purposed. That means to my understand both Locatstorage and stored variable have the same function, storing data mostly for settings, and private information.???


No I just write User-ID OR User name
To explain to you that you can use any of them as a key

If you have 5 inputs you need just 1 Key and all your inputs will be saved under that key

Or, you can use objects inside your stored variables.

They do, but the stored variable blocks are easier to work with. (They can also be used to store other data types, including media, unlike the Local Storage component, but that’s not relevant here!)

For example, looking at your first screenshot, you could save locListMain as a stored variable, and then you can save it between app sessions and retrieve its data easily! No need for the Local Storage blocks at all, no extra blocks needed. You would simply be saving locListMain as a stored variable instead of an app variable.
