  1. display binary field as

    One the features that I liked more from SSMSBoost is the option to visualize the Binary data opening as specific format, is that something possible to have in SQL Prompt?

    On the result Grid you can right click the binary field and open it as PDF or JPG, etc.

    • Allow object definition tooltips when there are squiggly lines (issues).

      When there is an issue with a line that has an object (table) the tooltip no longer works. The squiggly line issue takes priority. It would be nice to have a way to still view the object definition.

      May be holding down a specific key could temporarily turn off squiggly lines.

      • Code Analysis SC004: Make keywords user editable

        Code Analysis Rule SC004 "Found TODO comment" doesn't just look for a TODO comment, it also looks for other keywords. One of these is "Fixed", which is generating a number of false positives in our code, because it is a financial application, and "Fixed income" is a term we use quite a bit in explanations.

        The actual keywords that trigger this rule are, according to FabiolaB

        •todo
        •bug
        •fix
        •warning

        1) Make the list of keywords used by this rule user editable.
        2) Make it an option to have this rule only trigger on all caps keywords.

        • search analysis rule

          Search Analysis Rules
          There are a lot of analysis rules, and I spend too much time looking through them to find the exact rule I'm looking for. It would be nice if there were a search box where I could search for keywords so I can zero in on the one I need right away.

          • script filter

            The ability to script objects based on a filter.. In SSMS there is no quick way to script a subset of items other than selecting them one by one.

            • Code analysis report

              With 1000's of objects to review. Is it possible to generate a report of issues ordered by severity?

              I don't fancy trawling through all the objects looking for green lines.

              • Location for options, snippets and formatting styles should be carried over when version is updated

                Location for options, snippets and formatting styles should be carried over when version is updated.
                I set a custom location for these folders. However, when SQL Prompt is updated to a new version, the new version uses the default location. It should use my custom location from the prior version. Yes, it is easy enough to change manually, but the installation is so easy, who remembers to change the folder locations?

                    • Fix the SIPFramework.AddIn

                      Might be nice for you to have an easy Remove/Add feature so when your AddIns fail, you can remove then and reapply them. Just getting the error ''The parameter is incorrect" is not overly helpful.

                        • Copy entire contents of grid cell

                          I would like the ability to select a cell in the grid results and copy the entire contents of the cell, rather than it being truncated. Currently, I’m able to “Copy as IN clause” then remove the unnecessary characters, but this is a bit cumbersome.

                            • The group by option for all non-aggregate columns seems to get the columns from the select portion of the statement, including the function

                              The group by option for all non-aggregate columns seems to get the columns from the select portion of the statement, including the function wrapping.

                              I love this feature and would like have one additional context function called 'peel' or 'isolate' which removes all the function/formatting/whatever around a column and leaves the column.

                              for example

                              this:

                              GROUP BY ISNULL(column1, '') ,
                              ISNULL(column2, '') ,
                              ISNULL(column3, '') ,
                              ISNULL(column4, '0') ,
                              ISNULL(column5, '') ,
                              column6 ,
                              column7

                              becomes:

                              GROUP BY column1 ,
                              column2 ,
                              column3 ,
                              column4 ,
                              column5 ,
                              column6 ,
                              column7

                              Thanks,
                              Erin

                              • Keyboard shortcut for Unformat

                                A keyboard shortcut for Unformat. I find that I format code with the SQL Prompt's "Format SQL" but there are always pieces of code that I want to unformat into a single line, and the keyboard would be faster than using the mouse to scroll and select the option (Or the Ctrl, U, down arrow, Enter keys).

                                In fact the ability to assign keyboard shortcuts to the items in that list (have no idea what you call the dialog bubble menu) would be even better.

                                • Combine styling and options

                                  Currently, you can have a style that can be shared across team members. There are still Options you must set that are not included in the style. It would be easier to share if the SQL Prompt - Options were included in the Style definition.

                                  Qualification is a good example and often a cause of t-SQL not performing as expected with subselects.

                                  • Add support for localised English language variants

                                    I live in the UK. I use British English, not US English.

                                    Please support my locale and that of other English speaking users who are in the USA.

                                    Thanks!

                                    • Build an interface to update all Redgate Tools at once.

                                      I wanted to put this one level up (all Redgate), but did not see a way to do that.

                                      When you guys release an update, I do not see any choice but to open each tool, one at a time, and check to see if it was updated. There should be one interface that I can open that will check every product I have installed and install the appropriate updates. The current is much more time consuming than it should be and extremely inconvenient. If you have such a tool now, it should be easier to find.

                                      I thought Redgate…

                                      • Output Into Highlighting Column and Value

                                        For example with this code:

                                        declare @MyTable table(Column1 varchar(20), Column2 varchar(20), Column3 varchar(20))
                                        declare @MyTableChanges table(Column1 varchar(20), Column2 varchar(20), Column3 varchar(20))

                                        insert into @MyTable (Column1, Column2, Column3)
                                        output Inserted.Column1, Inserted.Column2, Inserted.Column3
                                        into @MyTableChanges(Column1, Column2, Column3)
                                        VALUES ('Apple','Orange','Grape');

                                        select *
                                        from @MyTableChanges mtc

                                        Putting the cursor in one of the columns of the 'insert into' or 'values' clauses will highlight the corresponding column in the other clause. Putting the cursor in one of the columns of the 'output' or 'into' clauses does nothing special. It should also highlight the corresponding column in the other clause.

                                        This builds upon the already-implemented suggestion …
