Get row ID of an SQLite FTS3 table

I have created an SQLite FTS3 table that I am using within the Android development platform (

target
is 2.2 and
minVersion
is 8). For example, I created the table as follows:

create virtual table person using fts3(first,last);


I know that when I insert data into this table, I
long
is returned, which is the row ID of the record inserted. How do I get the row ID from this table? If I perform:

select * from person


I get
-1
for
Cursor.getColumnColumnIndex("rowid");
. Also,
Cursor.getColumnNames()
only shows the two columns ('first' and 'last') and not the 'rowid'. Any suggestikns on how to solve this problem?

Answer

Try using:

select rowid,* from person

Rowid is a hidden field and is not included in "*".
