Help With SQLite_Backup

Recommended Posts

leegold

Hi,

I to access a DB every few seconds so I thought to take the file DB "mirror"/copy it to a memory DB and check the memory DB every few seconds. sqlitebackup.au3 seems an easy way to do this - to make the memory copy. But I must be missing something when I try a simple test because I didn't get anything from a select statement on the memory DB. But when I substitute the disk DB with the same code it works. I tried:

...

...

#include <SQLite.au3>
#include <SQLite.dll.au3>
#include <sqlitebackup.au3>

$sSQliteDll = _SQLite_Startup()
$sDbName = "C:\sqlite\relays.db"
$hDskDb = _SQLite_Open($sDbName)
Local $aRow

Local $hmemDb = _SQLite_Backup($hDskDb, ':memory:', Default, Default, Default, Default, Default)

Local $d = _SQLite_Exec($hmemDb, "Select * From sched", "_cb")    ; this does not work
; Local $d = _SQLite_Exec($hDskDb, "Select * From sched", "_cb")  ; this works

Func _cb($aRow)
    For $s In $aRow
        ConsoleWrite($s & @TAB)
    Next
    ConsoleWrite(@CRLF)
EndFunc   ;==>_cb
; ...
; ...
_SQLite_Close()
_SQLite_Shutdown()

I guess my questions is - What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

leegold,

Are you sure it is even running.  When I run it (under SCiTE) I get

! Au3check doesn't support input files encoded as UTF8 with BOM:

followed by

"C:UsersADMIN010Desktopsqlite backup.au3"(11,96) : error: _SQLite_Backup(): undefined function.

 

The version of _SQLite_Backup that I am using is dated 2010-03-08 (author - jchd)

Also,

I don't see anything in the UDF that suggests that ':memory:' is valid as the 2ND parm (destination database filename). 

Once you get the script to run you can add error checking after the function call.  I do not know what the UTF8/BOM message means.

kylomas,

":memory:" indeed is a valid pseudo-filename for a memory-based DB, as mentionned in _SQLite_Open help.

Those whishing to use Au3Check may rewrite the include as ASCII (Au3Check doesn't support UTF-8).

leegold,

I strongly doubt that your _SQLite_Exec on the disk-based DB would work: read help file again and you'll see that _SQLite_Exec doesn't produce any output. Use _SQLite_GetTable2D instead.

Hi,

Did you mean to say the _SQLite_Exec will not work on the memory DB? Because it does work OK with the disk DB:)  You mean it won't work witht memory DB(?), and it certainly seems not too...so I should try _SQLite_GetTable2D for the memory DB instead was  what you were saying(?) I don't want to put works in you mouth but _SQLite_Exec works on the disk DB fine. Or did I not understand?

You mentioned a help file above. if you could cite a link I'd be grateful. Thank you jchd!

I tried this which works fine when using a disk DB but will not work on the memory DB I tried to mirror from the disk db.

I get Sqlite error 21: Library Used Incorrectly. 

I just want to run SQL on the memory DB - is my memory DB valid that I'm trying to make? I must not be seeing this in the documentation - I will try to read more...thanks

#include <SQLite.au3>
#include <SQLite.dll.au3>
#include <File.au3>
#include <sqlitebackup.au3>

Local $aResult, $iRows, $iColumns, $iRval

$sSQliteDll = _SQLite_Startup()
$sDbName = "C:\sqlite\relays.db"
$hDskDb = _SQLite_Open($sDbName) ; Open a permanent disk database

Local $hmemDb = _SQLite_Backup($hDskDb, ':memory:', Default, Default, Default, Default, Default)

$iRval = _SQLite_GetTable2d($hmemDb, "SELECT * FROM sched;", $aResult, $iRows, $iColumns)
If $iRval = $SQLITE_OK Then
    _SQLite_Display2DResult($aResult)
Else
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "SQLite Error: " & $iRval, _SQLite_ErrMsg())
EndIf

_SQLite_Close()
_SQLite_Shutdown()

I'm just going to read the disk db into an array and use that - much simpler. I would still like to know like to know what I was doing wrong and I'm grateful for the help provided.

Instead try this:

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

#include <SQLite.au3>
#include <SQLite.dll.au3>
#include <File.au3>
#include "sqlitebackup.au3"

Local $aResult, $iRows, $iColumns, $iRval

$sSQliteDll = _SQLite_Startup()
$sDbName = "relaystest.db"
$hDskDb = _SQLite_Open($sDbName) ; Open a permanent disk database

_SQLite_Exec($hDskDb, "create table if not exists test (colA text);")
_SQLite_Exec($hDskDb, "insert into test values ('at least one row here');")

Local $hmemDb = _SQLite_Backup($hDskDb, ':memory:')


$iRval = _SQLite_GetTable2d($hmemDb, "SELECT * FROM test;", $aResult, $iRows, $iColumns)
If $iRval = $SQLITE_OK Then
    _SQLite_Display2DResult($aResult)
Else
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "SQLite Error: " & $iRval, _SQLite_ErrMsg())
EndIf

_SQLite_Close()
_SQLite_Shutdown()

BTW and once again, _SQLite_Exec on any DB can't return any (SQL) result, just a error code.

      Hello,
      Using SQLite, I was trying to select a specific column with having duplicate entries removed by using the DISTINCT function. 
      Local $sQuery = "SELECT DISTINCT supervisor, COUNT(DISTINCT employee_name) FROM data_db What the above snippet does is just list only one supervisor but with the total count of unique employee names in the whole database when it should be listing out all supervisor entries from the database and list the total count of employees per each supervisors. If I remove the COUNT function, it does list out all unique entries of supervisor names from the list. Attached is a screenshot of an example database as well. 
      Any help will be much appreciated. Thank you!

      Hey,
      I have a script that uses SQLite. It worked without a hiccup on my W7 system.
      However, last week I bought a new machine, installed W10 and autoit, and now I'm getting an error during _SQLite_Startup.
      Can anyone advise on how to find what's wrong? Tried checking $__g_hPrintCallback_SQLite but that returns nothing.
       
      Tried downloading the latest version of the dll from the link in the function page and I also replaced the default SQLite.dll.au3 that came with AutoIt with the one that came with the latest SQLite version zip.
       
      Relevant parts of my script:
      #include <SQLite.au3> #include <SQLite.dll.au3> _SQLite_Startup(@ScriptDir & "\Config\sqlite3_x64.dll", False, 1) If @error Then MsgBox(16, "SQLite Error", "SQLite3.dll Can't be Loaded! - " & $__g_hPrintCallback_SQLite & @CRLF & @CRLF & "Exiting application / Zavolej Honzovi") Exit -1 EndIf  
      Thanks

      Good evening everyone
      I am building a management for the company I work with, and I just imported a real amount of rows ( about 29000 ), in my SQLite DB.
      The thing I am not understanding, is the time that the script takes to build this amount of rows in the ListView.
      I didn't measure it, but I think it took 2 minutes or so to create each ListView item...
      It is normal that it takes so much time?
      What can I do to improve the creation of the items?

      Here's the code I am using to query and to create ListView items...
      ; Articles ListView: Global $lvwArticles = GUICtrlCreateListView("ID|Fornitore|Codice|Descrizione|EU|Prezzo|Sconto Applicato|Note", 14, 87, 1507, 660, BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_LISTVIEW,$LVS_SORTASCENDING,$LVS_SORTDESCENDING), BitOR($WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE,$LVS_EX_GRIDLINES,$LVS_EX_FULLROWSELECT)) ; Query $strQuery = "SELECT * FROM ARTICOLI;" ; Query Execution _SQLite_GetTable2d($objDatabase, $strQuery, $arrResult, $intRows, $intColumns) If @error Then ; Error Handling Else ; Cleaning the ListView _GUICtrlListView_DeleteAllItems($lvwArticles) If @error Then ; Error Handling Else ; No records in the Table If UBound($arrResult) < 2 Then ; Error Handling Else _GUICtrlListView_BeginUpdate($lvwArticles) For $intCounter = 1 To UBound($arrResult) - 1 $strListViewItem = $arrResult[$intCounter][0] & "|" & _ $arrResult[$intCounter][1] & "|" & _ $arrResult[$intCounter][2] & "|" & _ $arrResult[$intCounter][3] & "|" & _ $arrResult[$intCounter][4] & "|" & _ $arrResult[$intCounter][5] & "|" & _ $arrResult[$intCounter][6] & "|" & _ $arrResult[$intCounter][7] $objListViewItem = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($strListViewItem, $lvwArticles) Next _GUICtrlListView_EndUpdate($lvwArticles) EndIf EndIf EndIf Thanks in advance


      Best Regards.

      I have created this function for a database, but I can not make it work. I always have two error messages: "not an error" ... and the file created, in the script directory, does not contain anything.
      Global $sDBName = "Hen.db" Func DatabaseTable() Local $sConnDB _SQLite_Startup() If @error Then MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "SQLite Error", "SQLite.dll Can't be Loaded!") Exit -1 EndIf $sConnDB = _SQLite_Open($sDBName) If @error Then MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "SQLite Error", "Can't Load Database!") Exit -1 EndIf If Not _SQLite_Exec($sDBName, 'CREATE TABLE Animal ("Name", "Age");') = $SQLITE_OK Then MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "SQLite Error", _SQLite_ErrMsg()) If Not _SQLite_Exec($sDBName, 'INSERT INTO Animale VALUES ("Charlie","5");') = $SQLITE_OK Then MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "SQLite Error", _SQLite_ErrMsg()) _SQLite_Close($sConnDB) _SQLite_Shutdown() EndFunc

      Hello,
      I've been searching on how to select the first row in my database which includes a time column based on the latest start_time date for today's date.
      This is my current code:
      Local $iCurrentDate = _Now() Local $sqlHandle = _dbOpen($sDbPath) Local $aResult, $iRows, $iCols _SQLite_GetTable2d($sqlHandle, "SELECT start_time FROM " & $srawDb & " ORDER BY datetime(start_time) DESC LIMIT 1", $aResult, $iRows, $iCols) _ArrayDisplay($aResult) _dbClose($sDbpath) What it does is it gets the first row entry in the database however it does not select the latest start_time entry in the database, it always select the first row. I've tried changing DESC to ASC to see if that will do it but the issue still remains. Any thoughts on this? Thanks in advance.
       
      *EDIT
      The date format in the database is by MM/DD/YYYY HH:MM:SS.
