    The latest version of Prompt has the casing option UpperCamelCase which will case SELECT as Select.

  2. Reopening tabs is a great feature. HOWEVER, to have all the tabs sit there saying "not connected" means I have to manually reconnect to every one of them. Quel pain! Being in the middle of a time-crunch project with 12 tabs sitting there all disconnected motivated this request...

    Please present the Tab Magic overlay and give us:
    1. the option to "connect to last connected server with last-used credentials" for selected tabs.
    2. the option to choose another server from the list (it's OK if the connect dialog pops up once the overlay is dismissed).
    3. the option to remove…

    SQL Prompt 6.3 will now upgrade the tab colouring options from version 5. SQL Prompt 6.3 can be downloaded from which can be downloaded from http://www.red-gate.com/products/sql-development/sql-prompt/

    However if SQL Prompt 6 has already run on the machine it will have created a new settings file which won’t be overwritten. To manually upgrade, copy servers.xml from “localappdata\Red Gate\SQL Prompt 5” to “localappdata\Red Gate\Red Gate\SQL Prompt 6”.

  4. When using snippet with version before 6 (5ish), I could just hit tab and it will give me the correct code. However, with version 6, sometimes (half of the time), the first choice is nothing. It will do nothing rather than giving me the code for that particular snippet. Please fix it. It's very frustrating.

    Hi Jay, I think this was fixed a while back but if you’re still encountering any issues with it let us know.

  5. Ctrl - > (right or left arrow key) is the default for move to next word in the editor. In order to escape SQL prompt you can use the left or right arrow, esc etc, but why not include Ctr right arrow or Ctr left arrow so we don't have to type the extra characters. Makes coding with SQL prompt burdensome. Still use it and thanks!

    SQL Prompt 6.2.0.366 doesn’t swallow the Ctrl+Left and Ctrl+Right if the column picker is disabled.

  6. Often when I'm debugging code that dynamically generates SQL, I hit a breakpoint, then copy the code into an SSMS query window. All the code is typically in a single long line. I can then use SQLPrompt to format the code to read it, and potentially change it to correct errors. However, what I then often want to do is to paste the changed code back into the variable (or whatever). I'd love to be able to have an option to format the code all into a single line.

  8. Assume that I have an INSERT statement such as:
    INSERT INTO dbo.MyTable (Column1, Column2, Column3)
    VALUES ('Apple','Orange','Grape');

    If the mouse pointer is in the word 'Apple', the text Column1 should be highlighted in some way. This will help the user clearly see the alignment of which field they are in. If I move my cursor over to 'Orange', the text Column2 should then be highlighted. This is a very simple example, but sometimes I deal with queries with dozens of columns and it's a chore just to find which value in the bottom of the query corresponds to which value…

    We’ve released SQL Prompt 6 which includes the tab magic options.

  10. I really like the new feature in 6 that allows Ctrl-C to work to copy sections of scripts. However, I am missing an easy way to copy the entire script from the code pop-up. The copy button use to do this when nothing was selected in the pop-up window. Restoring this functionality would be appreciated.

    SQL Prompt 6.1 has now been released and has the copy button returned to the popup.

  11. It would be nice to be able to extend the intellisense matching to skip things like underscores. For example, if the table was called cardpickupstaging, you could match it with pickupstaging or upstag.

  12. Do not hijack CTRL-T in Tab Magic. I routinely use this to direct query output to Text. I use this in concert with CTRL-D, for output to Grid.
    Perhaps when options for Tab Magic are provided, we will be able to turn off this feature.

  13. I would like a config open so that the dropdown of queries starts at OPEN QUERIES not all queries

    also, I would like it when my mouse hovers over the magic tab button for it to just expand... the extra click makes it less magic

  14. The script below does not generate the correct sql syntax when adding a @table name into a subselect

    DECLARE @temptable AS TABLE (recid INT)

    DECLARE @mytable AS TABLE (contractid INT)

    INSERT INTO @mytable
    ( contractid )
    VALUES ( 1 -- contractid - int
    )

    ---> type @my -> then tab
    --> the table is predefined with brackes wich is wrong for a @table
    -> the below row is the result

    SELECT * FROM @temptable WHERE recid IN (SELECT * FROM [@mytable])

    This case should be fixed in the latest release of Prompt (6.3). Let me know if you’re still having any problems with it.

  15. Hi,

    Thanks for your last changes!

    In addition, I have sometime Long file names where only looking on their Name tail or according to their full path, I can decide which one is the relevant.
    Could you add in Query History a Tool Tip when hovering above the File Name with Full Name, Path, Last Closed, Last Connection details, etc.?

  16. It would be great to be able to bulk delete old or unneeded tabs from Tab History. Right now, I have to delete it one by one which is an endless task.

  17. Hi,

    First, I like the new design, and thank you for make it available for SSMS 2012.
    I have 2 problems:
    1. I missing the Option button (I don't wont it to open recently closed queries on start-up).
    2. When I'm searching for term in the Query History dialog, and hovering above one of the files in the left pane, its query text in the preview pane jumps to the somewhere in the file and move a bit to the left. I assumes it suppose to jump to the first match, but, it is not always even in the frame.…

    We’ve released SQL Prompt 6 which includes a fix for these.

  18. Please enable SQL Prompt to have the same behavior with double quotes as with square brackets.

    For example, typing:
    SELECT * FROM [MyTable]
    will allow the expansion of the asterisk, while
    SELECT * FROM "MyTable"
    does not.

    SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER is ON by default. Also, many Oracle "converts" use the format "SchemaName"."TableName".

  19. Frequently I need to debug application generated SQL obtained via Profiler. Parameterized queries are often implemented with sp_executesql.

    I love using Format SQL to make a single line monster query into something I can actually read. But when it's stuck in an spexecutesql call the format function doesn't touch it. I have to:
    Remove "Exec sp
    executesql".
    Remove the apostrophes around the query SQL. For big queries this is really painful, especially if the query itself contains apostrophes.
    Remove the apostrophes around the parameter defenitions.
    Move the parameter definitions to the top and add a DECLARE.
    Move the parameter…

    This feature was released in version 7.3 of SQL Prompt.

    If there are any missing features please let us know by creating a new suggestion.

    Kind Regards,
    The Prompt Team

  20. It would great if there was an un-format SQL command, which would basically un-format the SQL by removing all the carriage returns, tabs, extra spaces, etc. I know it seems odd, but we have several applications that use the SQL via external files, so the formatting will not work, and we end up manually removing all the formatting.
