Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Is it possible to connect to Microsoft SQL Server database

I have a Visual Studio application, currently in vb.net, but could be moved to C#, which uses Microsoft SQL Server SQL Client very heavily.

I am looking to change the UI of my app from a Winform, datagrid-driven experience to a game engine, but still need capability to display small datatables in the UI. Is this possible?

I built a plugin for UE4 that lets me access a MSSQL database from Blueprints in UE4, so it is possible, but you will have to write additional C++ code to get it to work. You cannot use any of the higher level C# SQL libraries like Linq or EF. I used ODBC from C++ and it works great!

Thanks Dartanlla, I wonder if you could post your C++ code or a mini-project that would show how you did this?

You can use any C# libraries you want in C++. I just did the same through dll import , since I am not from C++ background , I found it convenient to create database operations through C# and use C++ to call the C# function.

Just wanted to mention this here:

SQLite only supports a single writer at a time (meaning the execution of an individual transaction). SQLite locks the entire database when it needs a lock (either read or write) and only one writer can hold a write lock at a time. Due to its speed this actually isn't a problem for low to moderate size applications, but if you have a higher volume of writes (hundreds per second) then it could become a bottleneck.

That resource is not SQLLite, it is a full blown ODBC C++ connection library. It provides the linkage you need to make a connection to a SQL Server, MySQL Server, or any other ODBC compliant database.
