Android :: SQLite Matching Prefix On Indexed Column

Oct 7, 2009

I have a TEXT column and I want to match all rows where the value has a certain prefix. For example, WHERE mycol LIKE 'myprefix%' However, I noticed in some optimization guidelines that this will not use the index and instead you should do this:WHERE mycol >= 'myprefix' AND mycol < 'myprefiy'Instead of simple A-Z chars, I have a whole variety of UTF-8 chars (think chinese characters).My question is, how to work out the next char in UTF-8? Is it enough to add one to the codepoint,

Android :: Detect If A Table Contains A Column In Droid / Sqlite

Apr 20, 2010

So I have an app on the market, and with an update I want to add some columns to the database. No problems so far. But I want to detect if the database in use is missing these columns, and add them if this is the case. I need this to be done dynamically and not just after the update to the new version, because the application is supposed to still be able to import older databases. Normally I would be able to use the PRAGMA query, but Im not sure how to do this with Android. I cant use execSQL since it is a query, and I cant figure out how to use PRAGMA with the query()-function.

Ofcourse I could just catch exceptions and then add the column, or always add the columns to each table before I start to work with it, but that is not a neat solution.

Android :: Reference Sqlite Db Column To Use In Update Statement

May 8, 2010

I am trying to update a datetime column in an android sqlite db to use international date format (yyyy-mm-dd) instead of the current format (mm/dd/yyyy). I want to use the sqlite date() function to reformat the current value of the column. I thought it would be as simple as the following: update tblename set thedate = date(thedate)

But the above does not work.

How would i write the sql statement to accomplish this?

Android :: Determining Data Type Of Column In SQLite

Jun 23, 2010

I'm working on an Android App where the user has different options for sorting the displayed data that comes from the database. Currently my orderBy string that I pass to Androids query() method looks like this:

"LOWER("+columnName+") ASC"

The problem with this is that if the data type in the column specified by columnName is integer, calling LOWER() on it will cause it to be sorted alphabetically, i.e. based only on the leftmost digit, which of course doesn't make any sense for numeric data. Hence I only want to apply LOWER() if the data type of the column is not integer. What I have in mind is a statement like this:

"CASE WHEN [data type of columnName is integer] THEN "+columnName+" ASC ELSE LOWER("+columName+") ASC END"

The part in the brackets is what I don't know how to do. Does SQLite provide a function to determine a column's data type?

Android :: Retrieve Single Column Of Last Row In Sqlite / Droid Using ORDER ID Desc Limit 1

Nov 10, 2010

I'm attempting to create a method that will allow me to retrieve a value from the last row of a database, and then insert it into an EditText field. (This is a value that the user will not change all that often, so it would be helpful if when they do set it, it stays set when they come back to it).

My method, based on a similar method I have for getting the total of a specific column, is as such. code...

If I run the program without this statement, it works fine and the value saves to the db. As soon as I try to run it with this, I get a force close. Any suggestions?

Android :: How To Create A Sqlite Dist Db Function

We plan to ship with the sqlite DB with the app.In order to fetch only the relevant top 50 closest venues, we want to define a db function DIST (to calculate distance between two points) and use it in our query.How can I define a custom SQLite function for Android Apps? What will be the Java API call to do this?We have successfully implemented this approach in our iPhone App - using Objective C.

I am trying to use

SQLiteDatabase.openDatabase( "/data/data/edwin11.myapp/databases/myapp.db", null, (SQLiteDatabase.CREATE_IF_NECESSARY | SQLiteDatabase.NO_LOCALIZED_COLLATORS));

To create/open a database instead of making use of the SQLiteOpenHelper (because I want to pass in the flag SQLiteDatabase.NO_LOCALIZED_COLLATORS. However, I am getting this exception for that line of code:

04-18 09:50:03.585: ERROR/Database(3471): sqlite3_open_v2("/data/data/edwin11.myapp/databases/myapp.db", &handle, 6, NULL) failed

Doing some testing just before that line of code (using File.isExists) shows that the file /data/data/edwin11.myapp/databases/myapp.db does not exist. Would that be the cause of the error? (Or am I just using SQLiteDatabase.openDatabase the wrong way?) Would it help if I create the file beforehand? (Shouldn't that be taken care of by the SQLiteDatabase.CREATE_IF_NECESSARY flag that I passed in?) If creating the file manually is the way to go, is it just an empty file, or do I have to write something to it?

Android : Create A Sqlite Database That I Can Manually Input Data From My Computer

Nov 30, 2009

I have certain needs that I am having trouble making an app for. I was hoping to be able to create a sqlite database that I can manually input data from my computer and search the data on my droid. I wanted to set up tags or full data search within each sqlite database object so and pull up a listing of best matches for the given search term.

The use for it is that I work on an Air Force Base and my job is very broad. I wanted to custom build an app that I could list all of the information pertaining to my job and be able to search it as I work to find solutions to problems way quicker than we are doing it now.

Is there any such app. I've been trying to create my own and it looks like it would be a mix between notepad and searchable dictionary but not quite.

Android :: SQLiteException - No Such Column -1

Jan 1, 2010

One of my android apps performs the following specific SQLite query:

CODE:................

Now that works on some Android phones, but on a few of them it crashes with the following error:

CODE:..................

For some reason, "-1" is interpreted as a column rather than a number... that doesn't make much sense and when I read the SQLite query language I see no need to escape this number in parentheses. Could it be an issue of a different version of SQLite? Would adding parentheses this help any? Instead, I'll probably rewrite it using >= 0 but still I'd like to understand what's going on.

Android :: Column _id Does Not Exist

Jul 29, 2010

I'm having trouble with something that works in the Notepad example.

Here's the code from the NotepadCodeLab/Notepadv1Solution:

CODE:.................

This code seems to work fine. But just to be clear, I ran the adb utility and run sqlite3 I inspected the schema as follows:

CODE:...............

All seems good to me.

Now on to My App, which as far as I can see is basically the same with a few minor changes. I've simplified and simplified my code, but the problem persists.

CODE:..............

When I run my app, I get a RuntimeException and the following prints in LogCat from my Log.e() statement:

LogCat Message: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: column '_id' does not exist

So, back to sqlite3 to see what's different about my schema:

CODE:.................

I don't see how I'm missing the '_id'.

Can anyone point out what I've done wrong?

One thing that's different between my app and the Notepad example is that I started by creating my application from scratch using the Eclipse wizard while the sample app comes already put together. Is
there some sort of environmental change I need to make for a new app to use a sqlite database?

And, of course, I want the TextViews, that might have different lengths, to be centered. I tried this in a table layout, for obvious reasons but I feel like this is not the way to do it because it doesn't have much control where I put everything once it is in a row. Should I be using a different combinations of layouts or is there something I overlooked.
