      I have one thing to ask, In this video we saw queries which actually returns only A single column and then store the result using statement[0],statement[1] .... 


      WHAT if the query return multiple rows from the database? How do we get the values of each row.?

      Is there any documentation or API for SQL PCL? How am I supposed to know how methods of SQL PCL work? I found many useful resources on SQLite statements but nothing on how to actually use them with PCL besides your video.

      In SQLite

      When add a references() to my project WP8.1 show me this error after Install (NuGet)
      Install failed. Rolling back...
      Could not install package 'SQLitePCL'. You are trying to install this package into a project that targets 'WindowsPhoneApp,Version=v8.1', but the package does not contain any assembly references or content files that are compatible with that framework. For more information, contact the package author."

      Look at for an example of retrieving more than one result.

      I think SQLite PCL does not support WP8.1 yet. Don't hesitate to correct me please.

      Re SQLITE on WP8.1

      I think you just need to apply the VSIX for WP8.1 available at:
      http :// visualstudiogallery . / 5d97faf6-39e3-4048-a0bc-adde2af75d1b

      then follow the existing WP8 examples

      I have a question related to discovering devices on my home network. The "Device Hub" in the phone settings shows only wifi devices. I have a Buffalo NAS which is wired connected to my router. I also web enabled this, so I can see it from the internet (created home cloud in a way). I can see this device on windows file explorer and also through IE browser on my windows 8.1 home PC. But on my Nokia 1020 I can only use the Buffalo app to see it from the web. I can't see it through any file explorer through my home network. Is there a solution for this? If you point me to some examples I'll be willing to try to create such a phone app.

      I'll appreciate your help.
