delete usage


  • Open a session.
  • Create an instance of countersFor.
    • Either pass countersFor an explicit document ID, -or-
    • Pass it an entity tracked by the session, e.g. a document object returned from session.query or from session.load.
  • Call countersFor.delete.
  • Call session.saveChanges for the changes to take effect.


  • A Counter you deleted will be removed only after the execution of saveChanges().
  • delete will not generate an error if the Counter doesn't exist.
  • Deleting a document deletes all its Counters as well.
