How to access Backendless Counters table using Backendless.Data.of()

Hi, I would like to know if I can access Backendless Counters using Backendless.Data.of() in Android.
Something like Backendless.Data.of(“Counters”)…

I would like to use this approach for specific reason.
Is that possible? Thanks.

Hi,

It is not possible for several reasons:

  • The Backendless.Data.of() is used only for database access. Counters are not stored in the database…
  • Nothing prevents a developer from creating database tables named “Counters” and then Backendless.Data.of(“Counters”) would be used to access that table

Regards,
Mark
