wxSQLite3  3.2.1

What is wxSQLite3?

wxSQLite3 is a C++ wrapper around the public domain SQLite 3.x database and is specifically designed for use in programs based on the wxWidgets library.

Several solutions already exist to access SQLite databases. To name just a few:

The component wxSQLite3 was inspired by all three mentioned SQLite wrappers. wxSQLite3 does not try to hide the underlying database, in contrary almost all special features of the SQLite3 version 3.x are supported, like for example the creation of user defined scalar or aggregate functions.

Since SQLite stores strings in UTF-8 encoding, the wxSQLite3 methods provide automatic conversion between wxStrings and UTF-8 strings. The methods ToUTF8 and FromUTF8 of the wxString class (available since wxWidgets 2.8.4) are used for the conversion. Special care has to be taken if external administration tools are used to modify the database contents, since not all of these tools operate in Unicode or UTF-8 mode.
