Increment by 1, return current

Atomically increments by one the current value and returns the updated (current) value of the counter. Multiple concurrent client requests are guaranteed to return unique updated value.

Future<int> Backendless.counters.incrementAndGet(String counterName);

IAtomic counter = Backendless.counters.of(String counterName);
Future<int> counter.incrementAndGet();

where:

Argument                Description
counterName name of the counter to increment.

Example

Function callback = (counterValue) => print("current counter value is - $counterValue");

Backendless.counters.incrementAndGet("my counter").then(callback);

IAtomic myCounter = Backendless.counters.of("my counter");
myCounter.incrementAndGet().then(callback);
