Property (As String )
aSQLiteDatabase.EncryptionKey = newStringValue
StringValue = aSQLiteDatabase.EncryptionKey

Supported for all project types and targets.

Specifies the encryption key used to create or connect to an encrypted database.


To encrypt a new database, specify this value before calling CreateDatabaseFile.

To connect to an encrypted database, specify this value before calling Database.Connect.

To encrypt an existing database, use the Encrypt method.


This example supplies EncryptionKey before attempting to connect to an encrypted database:

Dim dbFile As GetFolderItem("MyDB.sqlite")

Dim db As New SQLiteDatabase
db.DatabaseFile = dbFile

db.EncryptionKey = "horse+20$"

If db.Connect Then
// Key was correct; DB is connected
MsgBox("Connected to database.")
// Connection error. This could be because the key is wrong or other reasons
MsgBox("Connection error: " + db.ErrorMessage)
End If
