sqlite select from view

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to selct from a view instead of a table.

Within sqlite expert its not a problem, but with a _sqlite_exec it seems to be impossible:

this doesn`t work

_SQLite_GetTable(-1, "SELECT * FROM viewname;", $aResult, $iRows, $iColumns)

but this does work in sqlite expert

SELECT * FROM viewname;

SOLVED allready it was something in my script....

Yes you can as you've discovered. A view in SQLite is nothing more than a registered SELECT which is run on demand.

So when you do "SELECT * FROM myview;" with myview defined as "SELECT a, b, c FROM mytable;" you are in fact issuing "SELECT * FROM (SELECT a, b, c FROM mytable);". Hence no noticeable difference.

This wonderful site allows debugging and testing regular expressions (many flavors available). An absolute must have in your bookmarks.
