Feature request #15666
Spatialite view and DB manager
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:|

I have created a database with spatialite_gui tool (spatialite version 4.3.0a), the database has some spatial views created with a code like this
CREATE VIEW comunitorino AS SELECT c.ROWID as rowid, c.cod_com, c.geometry from comuni c; INSERT INTO views_geometry_columns (view_name, view_geometry, view_rowid, f_table_name, f_geometry_column,read_only) VALUES ('comunitorino', 'geometry', 'rowid', 'comuni', 'geometry',1)
The view can be load in QGIS by 'add spatialite layer' button
The problem is that if I use DB Manager and open the DB the view will not be seen as spatial view.
If I create the same view in DB Manager with the "Create a view" button the view will be seen as spatial view.
I wrote in qgis user mailing list and I solved it adding an entry in geometry_columns table (for the view created with spatialite.
It would better to align the two qgis tools: 'add spatialite layer' button and DB manager; so that spatial views will be always seen correctly.
