sqliteHow do I use SQLite with Visual Studio?

SQLite is a lightweight, open source database that can be used with Visual Studio. It is a self-contained, serverless, zero-configuration, transactional SQL database engine.

To use SQLite with Visual Studio, you need to install the SQLite/SQL Server Compact Toolbox extension. This extension adds several features to Visual Studio, including the ability to connect to and manage SQLite databases.

Once the extension is installed, you can create a new SQLite database in Visual Studio by right-clicking on the App_Data folder in the Solution Explorer and selecting "Add New Item". Select the "SQLite/SQL Server Compact" option and click "Add".

You can then open the database in Visual Studio and execute SQL commands. For example, the following code creates a new table in the database:

    name TEXT NOT NULL

The output of the above code should be a message indicating that the table was successfully created.

You can also use Visual Studio to view and edit the data in the database. To do this, right-click on the database in the Solution Explorer and select "View Data". This will open a window showing the contents of the database.

SQLite can also be used with other programming languages, such as C# and JavaScript. For more information on using SQLite with Visual Studio, see the SQLite documentation.
