I want to work on a sqlite3 database using SQL from C#. I have installed SQLitewrapper and I have the code below, which runs without error (but without any real action). I want help to get started, examples on how to scan through a table and eventually retrieve and manipulate values, and also how to run and display sql statements. Code examples can be in C#, VB6 or Foxpro.

TIA, your help is much appreciated!

        private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            SQLiteBase db = new SQLiteBase("d:\\projects\\sqlite\\test.db");
            DataTable table = db.ExecuteQuery("SELECT * FROM fields;");
            dataGridView1.DataSource = table.TableName ;
            dataGridView1.Show();
            db.CloseDatabase();
        }

OK, that's some good links, but all pointing to info about ODBC use. My first option is to use a COM based wrapper, and I found SQLITEWrapper.dll, which I intend to use. So the question is based on this.

However, since "everything" points in the direction of ODBC I will explore this also. Can you suggest a good and free ODBC driver?

I've used ODBC driver from Christian Werner: http://www.ch-werner.de/sqliteodbc/

You may also find some free client tools (e.g. http://sqlitestudio.pl) so you may access SQLite database as if you were in Management Studio.

I would guess the OLE access will be a little bit slower than ODBC.

Did you try ADO.NET provider for SQLite? It should be good option for C#: http://system.data.sqlite.org/index.html/doc/trunk/www/index.wiki

You may also look at variety of SQLite implementations on the wiki: http://www.sqlite.org/cvstrac/wiki?p=SqliteWrappers
