SQL Search

JUMP TO ANOTHER FORUM

  1. Would like to be able to enable case-sensitive searching. JSON field names in SQL are case sensitive.

    example: JSON_VALUE(MyJsonColumn, '$.caseSensitiveFieldName')

    Sometimes not everyone on the team is on the same page during development, and half the team uses "CaseSensitiveFieldName" and the other half uses "caseSensitiveFieldName". Eventually we realize the disconnect and have to go back and standardize things. So a case sensitive search would really help.

  2. This add-on moves schemas to a folder (e.g. Database -> Tables -> Schemas -> list of individual tables). Both add-ons dramatically increase's SSMS' usability. Search for obvious reasons. Schema Folders for easy keyboard jump to objects (e.g. typing tab to jump to "TableName" instead of dbo.tab). But the 2 don't work together. "Select object in Object Explorer" no longer works once I have Schema Folders installed. It often ends up somewhere in the sys folder, without actually jumping to the object.

    Having both work would be gravy for my data warehouse (100s of tables/procs) means lots of scrolling otherwise.

    Add-on…

  3. Search start - please make it at button press. The current "automatic" start might be annoying, especially when a very long search starts automatically after the input fileds are touched/leaved.

  4. Search for a Procedure that has NO parameters, and the code-line ends with a semicolon - Search IS BLIND! What a lousy BUG!

  5. When using SQL Search to find a column name within objects, it would be extremely helpful to have an additional column that totals the number of instances of that search string within the search results. Clicking on a row in the search results shows the first instance of the string within the object but if it's a stored procedure, function, trigger, table, or query it's helpful to be able to see the total number of instances of that string within the object.

    Also in the object definition window, it would be really nice to be able to click a button…

  7. Please provide an option to save the search results to a file. This is very helpful when there are a lot of objects that match the search criteria.

  8. While not frequent, there are times when I start SQL Search and all of the fields are disabled (see attached image). The only resolution is to exit SSMS and restart.

  10. It remembers the last search term, but not which databases I limited to the last time I searched. So everytime I open it, it tries to search multiple databases that I don't have permissions to. At least once a week I get asked by the DBA's what on earth I am doing.

  12. I would like to be able to activate SQL Search from the keyboard instead of clicking the icon on the toolbar. In addition, I would like to have keystrokes to toggle some options like whether it Matches on Name, Text, or Column.

    When I'm searching for objects with names containing "xyz" I'd like to do it quickly from the keyboard without having to navigate with my mouse.

    This should be an easy request to fulfill and will give you points in the Accessibility category.

  13. Hola, trabajo todos los días en SQL Management Studio y SQL Search es una herramienta clave para mí, he notado que puedo copiar código que sale en la vista previa si tengo SPID abierto y el código que se muestra esta grabado en un archivo, pero muchas veces estamos modificando consultas o procedimientos y deseamos reutilizar código, se podrá habilitar el comando copiar aunque no tenga grabado el archivo o código con un SPID abierto? sería de gran ayuda gracias.

  15. Currently its impossible to see User Defined Table Types at all in SQL Search. Please add this functionality. Other 'Type' objects would also be great.

    https://forum.red-gate.com/discussion/86737/can-sql-search-show-user-defined-types

    It breaks your flow when rather than using search, you have to manually navigate down the object explorer

  16. At the moment, you can filter on each node; tables/views/SP's etc. This takes ages often.

    I would like to see a filter up at the top of the tree, that filters the whole tree as you type. No dialog, just a filter text entry box at the top.

  17. Your sql search tool is great, while using it. However, it would be even better, if you could allow a user a way to kick off the tool without the toolbar button. I use VS and management studio without toolbars and via keyboard shortcuts. I would love to see a keyboard shortcut entry to kick off a SQL Search, and\or a means via menus.

    Thank you.

  18. When you click on a match and see the script in the lower panel, I can highlight with my mouse but Ctrl-C doesn't copy what I've highlighted to the clipboard. That would be handy!

  20. I was wondering if trigger icon could have a status indicator, whether it is disabled or not.
    currently (ver 3.5.2) it only shows like this.

    ![current](https://us.v-cdn.net/6029854/uploads/editor/j4/h8s0bbhrm7l7.jpg)

    But i'd like to have an indicator on the icon whether it's disabled or not
