I quote the following from http://sqlite.org/lang_expr.html :

lower(X) Return a copy of string X will all characters converted to lower case. The C library tolower() routine is used for the conversion, which means that this function might not work correctly on UTF-8 characters.

upper(X): Return a copy of input string X converted to all upper-case letters. The implementation of this function uses the C library routine toupper() which means it may not work correctly on UTF-8 strings.

In my sqlite database i use many large field text.
I often need to modify that text.
Any chance to improve your great extension to allow editing text in a larger multiline text field box ?
Now seems possible to edit it only in a small combo box, isn't it ?
Thank you

Just something about terminology: shouldnt be there better "Connect database" instead of "Open database"? ;-)

g'day,

I think that it is great that multi-line text can now be entered. Does that mean that I can insert a line break by hitting enter? I tried that but it did not save the change. Is this something that is prevented by sqlite rules?

I had just imported address data from Access where the address field could have one or many lines. I had to substitute a '//' to indicate line breaks. I saw your update and thought that this was no longer necessary. Ah well!

yes, there is a bug; i will have to fix it. I mean the data in the multiline textbox is not being read to edit/insert into the table. As far as handling linebreaks are concerned, let me examine that.

mrinal.kant,
thank you very much for multi-line text implementation.
it would great if you could:
1) when click on a record in browse and search appears a too_small window.
it can show up to 8 fields and you need to manually scroll down to reach other fields.
any chance to implement a larger window allowing to display more fields in one only window (without having to scroll down) ?
2) field multiline text: any way to display more than 5 lines (i've seen that you can scrolling down, but it would be better to have more lines avaible, isn't it).
3) add a next - previous buttons to scroll records (in the window that appears when click on a record)
4) in text field appears 'text' and not only text
is it normal ? (in other sqlite manager program i don't have that '')
thank you again and, again, i really appreciate your great work !

Yes, there was a bug which has been fixed in version 0.2.23

--------------------------------------------------------
Version 0.2.23:
Download from songbirdnest.com: http://addons.songbirdnest.com/extensions/detail/89
Download from AMO: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/5817

In this version:
Changes:
- added a preference to not require all the confirmations. This preference can be set through the menu General -> Options->Prompts->"Any other operations on the table". (suggested by CanyonCasa)
- Search in Table/View: can search text containing newline character

Bug Fixes:
- Editing/Inserting long multiline text: newline character could not be properly inserted in all cases. The editable dropdown box was responsible for this. The dropdown has been removed and now there is only a multiline textbox. Fixed (as a consequence, you cannot select constants from a dropdown; they must be typed as of now)

Two users have suggested renaming the General menu to Tools. To assess whether others support this too, I have created a one-question survey at
http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=o ... 0jYA_3d_3d

Please vote.

sqlite does not appear to provide a password protected database on its own in the free version. If you can guide me to where I can get how password protection has been done, it will help. Otherwise, I will have to think of my own way for password protection.

thanks.

i'm sorry but i don't know how password protection has been done.
i often use http://www.sqlabs.net/index.php to open password protected database
you could ask to that Author (he's very competent on that).
thanks

[quote="mrinal.kant"][quote="impertinence"]However, there are a few more features I'd like: import/export tab-delimited, [/quote]
even the csv handling was imperfect. just corrected that. will handle TSV now

Awesome.

[quote="impertinence"]edit for search results[/quote]
not clear, what you mean by that? please explain

Nevermind. It works fine.

[quote="impertinence"]faster loads for large tables[/quote]
if u observe that the load is slow, you can restrict the number of rows that should be loaded at one time using preferences.

Thanks for the tip.

[quote="impertinence"]and one-time dialogs (no 'cancel' button) for things that are usually one-time like imports. :D[/quote]
will be done in the next version. actually missed this point otherwise I would have done it already. This is after all how most applications behave.[/quote]

Cool.

Thanks for making such a neat tool.
