SQLiteHelper (a.ka. "SqlHelper") class for SQLite.NET
by Peter A. Bromberg, Ph.D.

Peter Bromberg

When the people running the SourceForge.Net project for the SQLite.NET ADO.NET provider came out with a revision to match SQLite 3.XX, I decided it would be fun (and useful) to see if I could write a "SQLIteHelper.cs" class that mirrors the functionality of the Microsoft.ApplicationBlocks.Data "SqlHelper" class. Turns out, its really very easy. Of course, the only thing missing is stored procedure support, but if you like SQLite, this helper class is for you. I even implemented the object[] parameters overloads where you can pass an object array of parameter values into the various static methods and the class will create a SQLiteParameter collection of typed parameters and populate it for you. First, here's the code. I haven't implemented everything yet, but it is pretty much feature complete:

And here is a Quasi "help document" in the NDoc LinearHTML format:

public class SQLiteHelper

SQLiteHelper is a utility class similar to "SQLHelper" in MS Data Access Application Block and follows similar pattern.

Method Members

NameAccessSummary
AssignParameterValues() : Voidprotected This method assigns dataRow column values to an array of IDataParameters
AssignParameterValues() : Voidprotected This method assigns an array of values to an array of IDataParameters
AssignParameterValues() : VoidfamilyOrAssembly This method assigns dataRow column values to an IDataParameterCollection
CreateCommand() : SQLiteCommandpublic Creates the command.
CreateCommand() : SQLiteCommandpublic Creates the command.
CreateParameter() : SQLiteParameterpublic Creates the parameter.
DeriveParameters() : SQLiteParameterCollectionpublic Parses parameter names from SQL Statement, assigns values from object array , and returns fully populated ParameterCollection
ExecuteDataset() : DataSetpublic Executes the dataset from a populated Command object.
ExecuteDataSet() : DataSetpublic Shortcut method to execute dataset from SQL Statement and object[] arrray of /// parameter values
ExecuteDataset() : DataSetpublic Executes the dataset in a SQLite Transaction
ExecuteDataset() : DataSetpublic Executes the dataset with Transaction and object array of parameter values.
ExecuteDataSet() : DataSetpublic Shortcut method to execute dataset from SQL Statement and object[] arrray of parameter values
ExecuteNonQuery() : Int32public
ExecuteNonQuery() : Int32public Executes non-query sql Statment with Transaction
ExecuteNonQuery() : Int32public Executes the non query.
ExecuteNonQuery() : Int32public Shortcut to ExecuteNonQuery with SqlStatement and object[] param values
ExecuteNonQueryTypedParams() : Int32public Executes non query typed params from a DataRow
ExecuteReader() : IDataReaderpublic ShortCut method to return IDataReader NOTE: You should explicitly close the Command.connection you passed in as well as call Dispose on the Command after reader is closed. We do this because IDataReader has no underlying Connection Property.
ExecuteScalar() : Objectpublic Shortcut to ExecuteScalar with Sql Statement embedded params and object[] param values
ExecuteXmlReader() : XmlReaderpublic Execute XmlReader with complete Command
UpdateDataset() : Voidpublic Executes the respective command for each inserted, updated, or deleted row in the DataSet.

To use this, download the SQLiteHelper.cs class and the CHM documentation in the zip file below, and ADD the SQLiteHelper.cs class file to the ADO.NET provider source code project, and rebuild it. Done! Now you have SQLite.Net ADO.NET provider with a familiar, built-in SQLiteHelper class should you need it. Feel free to improve if you are so inclined.

N.B. I just checked the sourceforge.net site and it looks like Robert fixed a bug in the Command class. So I've gotten the new source and compiled a release build of SQLite.NET.dll as of 3/17/2005. It includes my SQLiteHelper class and is in the zip file below.
