  1. I would like to rename tabs without having to save them as a .sql file to the filesystem. I run with alot of tabs all the time and it gets very difficult if you don't name them to find a tab that has floated into the dreaded drop down arrow. Once its there I have to walk through the whole contents of the drop down list of query windows to find the one I want. With a simple rename of the tab that could be managed by the solution file. I would be able to label them and track them…

  2. When right-clicking in the results tab, SQL Prompt should offer the posibility to copy the results as a table with markdown formatting (for Stack Overflow / Stack Exchange network). See https://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/356997/feature-preview-table-support for the syntax.

  5. When writing SQL, I frequently will create a variable within the statement before I have Declared the variable. It would be great if SQL Prompt offered a UI option to autogenerate the variable declaration.

    For example, given the statement:
    SELECT * FROM dbo.Person WHERE Username = @Username
    I would like to use a shortcut key to auto generate and insert the declaration above the statement:
    DECLARE @Username VARCHAR(8);

    For simple fields, the data type can be pulled directly from the field metadata. For expressions, derive the data type as SQL would if possible, or move the cursor to the data…

  6. When I right click in a Stored procedure SSMS hangs, and it takes too long for the menu to show up. Please review Red Gate Source Control for the added entries in the menu to improve performace

  7. This is essentially the same as a forgotten SSMS request over here: https://feedback.azure.com/forums/908035/suggestions/32896039

    It would be incredibly useful to be able right-click on a server-node in the Registered Servers list and change/set the connection for the current document window to that. You already have a custom context menu item in there ("Tab Color (Server)", so that hurdle is gone.

    This idea is related to these, but not quite the same. In both cases, it seems they don't know about the Registered Server functionality, so they're basically asking for this idea, plus for you to re-implement that entire feature.

  8. I often use the Ctrl-F12 feature to jump to an object in the object Explorer, however this doesn't work if the object has been renamed, or was just recently created. In those cases I need to manually refresh the object Explorer before I can use F12. Perhaps the F12 feature could do that for me? (or prompt if it can't find the object)

  9. Pressing control+A will select an entire document.
    I'd like a control+k, control+A to select the current statement based on cursor position.

    This would enable me to do a few things:
    01. Format the current statement with a hotkey
    02. Copy or cut my current statement so I can paste it somewhere else

    Thanks.

  12. Hello,

    So I love the suggestion feature where I'm able to type in an object and the code appears to copy. Home run with this feature I can't thank you enough for it.

    I was wondering if it would be possible to expand on it though.

    Here is a sample. I'm looking to alter an object, let's say a stored proc...
    I usually begin by typing EXEC <name> to trigger the suggestion for stored procs to give me the object.

    Once the suggestion finds the object, the script contents appears in a side window.

    Using the COPY button in the…

  14. Time to time you need to compare data in the rows, for example when looking for the cause of duplication. If the query is complex enough with joins and wide tables I usually run

    SELECT * FROM ...

    and check where the duplication begins to easily find the root cause. The easiest way for me to do so is to copy it into the excel and do some simple formula to find the exact columns that have difference.

    It would be nice if SQL Prompt would support that feature. If it's possible then it can be done by highlighting needed…

  15. I would like to be able to filter on more than one string in the Object Explorer of SSMS.
    For example, I only want to see views that contain “OKDim” or “SSISOK”. Now I can only filter on “OK”, which still results in a long list of views.

  16. I would like to have the ability when using Redgate to develop a query as I do today in a new query window with all the object search and suggestions features currently offered in your product.
    After I get the query returning the correct record set, I want to be able to edit the record set without having to copy the query and navigate to SSMS’s “Edit Top XXX Rows” menu item.
    Editing a field on the row would update that field on that row when I move off the row.

  17. Request title:
    SSMS add a pane with a vertical list of open queries
    Description:
    In SSMS add a pane with a vertical list of open queries similar to the Object Explorer pane that can be docked/undocked that you can see the entire file name and quickly navigate or choose from the entire list of tabs of open query files to choose from.
    So, instead of horizontal tabs where the file name and other details that are partially hidden or don’t appear if many files are open, have an option to show a vertical list of open files.
    Add ability to…

  18. It would be useful to be able to copy a selection from the results grid which is pre-formatted as a WHERE clause in the same way "Copy as clause" IN works, e.g. copying a single value from ProductID column would produce WHERE ProductID = 5 and copying multiple values would produce WHERE ProductID in ( 5, 10, 15 ).

  19. Selecting code then pressing CTRL brings up the action list, but only 6 items are shown in this list, meaning that for many uses, scrolling or searching (moving is required. A longer list (ideally user-settable) would mean moving mouse directly to most items and selecting is possible.
