When i insert value into table row (data type float), smt rounds decimal values into zeros. Here is the dramatically simplified code in order to see the situation.Interestingly, assigning a single array value into a variable (as usual) doesn't work here !
Is this a SQLite bug ??

When i insert value into table row (data type float), smt rounds decimal values into zeros. Here is the dramatically simplified code in order to see the situation.Interestingly, assigning a single array value into a variable (as usual) doesn't work here !
Is this a SQLite bug ??

float * arraySource_energy_kcal = new float[1]; // member capacity
float temp = 6.08 ;
arraySource_energy_kcal[0] = temp ; // Array initialised

label1->Text = Convert::ToString(arraySource_energy_kcal[0]); // initialized array value displayed on the screen OK , 67.08

float Weight = 100 ;

// Db connection
SQLiteConnection ^connection = gcnew SQLiteConnection();
connection->ConnectionString = "Data Source = stock.db3";
connection->Open();
// Db connection

SQLiteCommand^ command1= connection->CreateCommand();
command1->CommandText = "CREATE TABLE meyve(`category` TEXT,`weight` FLOAT, `energy_kcal` FLOAT ) ";
command1->ExecuteNonQuery();

SQLiteCommand^ command2= connection->CreateCommand();
command2->CommandText = " INSERT INTO meyve(`category`,`weight`,`energy_kcal`) VALUES ('greyfurt', '"+Weight+"' , '"+arraySource_energy_kcal[0]+"' ) ";
command2->ExecuteNonQuery();

connection->Close();

>>Is this a SQLite bug ??

No -- it is a bug in your program.

>>VALUES ('greyfurt', '"+Weight+"' , '"+arraySource_energy_kcal[0]+"' ) ";

Do not put quotes around the floats -- the quotes are only for the strings. You will have to format the query before sending it to SqLite, something like this

string cmd;
cmd = " INSERT INTO meyve(`category`,`weight`,`energy_kcal`) VALUES ('greyfurt',";
stringstream s;
s << Weight << "," << arraySource_energy_kcal[0];
cmd += s.str();

Dear Dragon, forget about stupid quotes they are ok except arrays..? Still when i insert a decimal value into table row from the array , smt rounds decimal values into zeros on the table.

float arr[2];
arr[0] = 245 ; // right , 245 on the table
arr[1]= 1.098 ; // wrong ! , 0 in the table


SQLiteConnection ^Conn = gcnew SQLiteConnection();
Conn->ConnectionString = "Data Source = test.db3";
Conn->Open();

SQLiteCommand ^cmd = Conn->CreateCommand();
System::String ^query = "INSERT INTO xenon (`enerji_kcal`,`protein_ounce`) VALUES ('"+arr[0]+"','"+arr[1]+"' ) ";
cmd->CommandText = query ;
cmd->ExecuteNonQuery();

I realize you are using CLR/C++, but here is a c++ program that works ok with floats.
