Following the last upgrade of the the xamrin environment is no longer possible to perform the queries, which filter is composed with datetime condition.

While leaving all conditions unchanged:  same source code, same database structure and the data in the tables; the solution compiled with the previous framework (until August 2016) return always the correct records, after install the last framework the query return 0 result.

using (SqliteCommand cmd = conn.CreateCommand())
  cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@DATESPED", dtDateSped);
  using (SqliteDataAdapter da = new SqliteDataAdapter(cmd))

Comment 2 Matthew Leibowitz 2017-02-10 22:40:21 UTC
This is a bug, and is a result of these two commits:

These are the related issues:

Basically, the way in which dates are saved was changed:
OLD: yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss.FFFFFFF
NEW: yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss.FFFFFFFK

For whatever reason this was changed, it is "incorrect" with regards to SQLite docs:

> SQLite does not have a storage class set aside for storing dates and/or times.
> Instead, the built-in Date And Time Functions of SQLite are capable of storing 
> dates and times as TEXT, REAL, or INTEGER values:
>   - TEXT as ISO8601 strings ("YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS.SSS").
>   - REAL as Julian day numbers, the number of days since noon in Greenwich on
>     November 24, 4714 B.C. according to the proleptic Gregorian calendar.
>   - INTEGER as Unix Time, the number of seconds since 1970-01-01 00:00:00 UTC.
