  1. share information about environment between red-gate tools

    SQL Source Control and SQL Prompt may not know about an environment (i.e. a developer not having access to staging or production server) and there's not really a facility in either tool to store information about the version of any environment.

    Thus, SQL Source Control has to ensure backward and forward compatibility when creating migration scripts - which then triggers Code Analysis Errors in SQL Prompt...! It is a mess to clean up, and frankly a waste of time.

    I suggest a feature where I can define my environments in the Tab Coloring in SQL Prompt including a listing of…

    • Color tabs by logged in user

      I can have 2 different users on my prod (or any other) env. 1 can have read only access and another one can be "sa". It would be nice to have coloring rules that would warn me that I am logged in with "sa".

      • Auto add servers to Tab colouring

        It would be good to have an option to auto add all detectable servers to the Tab Color options page. I quite like to have every server with a different colour but adding them all individually is very time consuming.

        • Tab coloring/colouring - settings file

          I use SQL Prompt from different machines, and have been able to standardise my customisation by storing the snippets file and the styles in a central accessible location (e.g. Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive etc).

          Please make the tab colouring have a similar feature so that I can share the settings across different machines.

          • Make editor background color the same as the tab color

            Making the editor background color the same as the tab color (especially for production database connections) will be a highly visible alert that you are working on a production database. This is especially helpful if you are working on multiple database instances concurrently and will help prevent executing on a production database accidentally.

            • Tab-colouring, Product Groups and Tab-templates

              Having to assign a colour per DB per server is tedious for those of us who manage many DBs across many servers.

              I would like to be able to assign a product group a specific colour. Within this product group, I would further define which servers are development, which are integration, which are production and so on. Each of the servers within the product group would have a progressively lighter shade of the initially chosen colour.

              Added to this, the system DBs (and especially MASTER) would have a shading (cross-hash maybe?) to indicate that the user is not on a…

              • tab foreground color

                Allow foreground (text) color to be specified. Some background colors cannot be used because black text is not readable.

                • Show part of the sql text on the tabs hint

                  You could show at the tab hint, the first lines of the query typed on that tab. It'll help a lot to localize a especifi query among a lot of tabs opened.

                  • Tab colouring - Job Specific

                    The Tab Colouring system is brilliant, but I find that I am often working with more than one job at a time that are using the one Database. It would be of great benefit if I was able to Colour my Query Tabs based on which job they are for. i.e.: more than one colour available per Database.

                    • Make Experimental feature Query tab Coloring available in Visual Studio Queries

                      This experimental feature works in SSMS but does not show up as an option when we use SQL Prompt 5 on Visual Studio query connection tabs.

                      • Add Colors to Database/Server Icons in Object Explorer

                        Coloring the Tabs is very nice. I would love to have the database/server icons be colored (or at least a small colored dot on them) so I could see at a glance in Object Explorer what server the database is on.
