What version of Sqlite am I using?

What version of Sqlite am I using?

I am using Qt 5.14.1 for my application. Under the covers I am using Sqlite for my database. I need to find out what version of Sqlite is installed for it. How can I do this?

select sqlite_version();

Run the query:

select sqlite_version()

and see what result you get.

Thanks, Larry. I am on 3.28.0, which is the reason GENERATED fields are not recognized. Sigh... and it was such a good solution.

I don't really want to go through the learning curve of installing my own version of Sqlite in Qt. I don't know when Qt will get to 3.31. Is that information visible to Sqlite development?

I don't know when Qt will get to 3.31.

Qt 5.15 includes SQLite 3.32.1

Seeing as how Qt 5.14.1 was supposed to have Sqlite 3.30.1 and in reality had version 3.28.0, I will believe it when I see it.

Here's the GitHub link to the SQLite sources included as part of Qt sources: https://github.com/qt/qtbase/tree/5.14.1/src/3rdparty/sqlite

Looking up the relevant part in sqlite.h, we get:

#define SQLITE_VERSION        "3.30.1"

Sorry to report that what you see is not what you get. When I use

SELECT sqlist_version();
at run time, I get version "3.28.0". My version of Qt Creator is 5.14.1.

Open sqlite3.h, scroll down about 100 lines, and look at the value of SQLITE_VERSION.

Jens, Sqlite is buried in Qt for which I haven't downloaded the source.

"select sqlite_version();" worked fine to get my answer.
