Data Access with SQLite and Data Binding

  • Dan Hermes


Data access in Xamarin apps often involves a local database and a remote data server accessed via web services. Local data access can be handled in many ways with many products, both open source and proprietary, but the Xamarin-recommended mobile database is SQLite, which is built into iOS and Android. Data can be queried from a SQLite database and manually populated into the UI, but a more sophisticated approach is to use data binding to transfer information automatically between the UI and your data models. In this chapter, you’ll learn how to employ SQLite in your Xamarin apps as well as how to use data binding in your Xamarin.Forms apps.
