How to have an automatic timestamp in SQLite?

I have an SQLite database, version 3 and I am using C# to create an application that uses this database.

I want to use a timestamp field in a table for concurrency, but I notice that when I insert a new record, this field is not set, and is null.

For example, in MS SQL Server if I use a timestamp field this is updated by the database, I have not to set by myself. is this possible in SQLite?

Answer

Just declare a default value for a field:

CREATE TABLE MyTable(
    ID INTEGER PRIMARY KEY,
    Name TEXT,
    Other STUFF,
    Timestamp DATETIME DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP
);

However, if your INSERT command explicitly sets this field to NULL, it will be set to NULL.
