  1. Prompt currently needs a database connection to retrieve objects/suggestions from, which it gets from a database project's "Target Connection String".

    It would be better if prompt loaded suggestions directly from the sql files in the project without needing the database.

  2. Work at a company where we're adopting PDW. It would be great if I could get intellisense in PDW.

  3. When autocompleting a stored procedure statement in the format 'EXEC storedProc @param1 = 0, @param2 0' it would really help if the parameters would initially have the default values defined in the stored procedure (if applicable).

  4. Spell check on comments would be a nice addition to SQL Prompt. I know there can be misspellings within variables, table or any type of SQL object, but to at least have it in the comments would be nice.

  5. When the drop down appears with field names (like when you're typing in a WHERE clause), include a little icon for each field that's the first field in an index (like the key pic when it's the PK).

    Being able to say "oh, that one has an index" would help me when trying to figure out how I want to filter things. (aka use "insertedtime" vs "posttime" vs the "start_time"). I'd say to use one icon (maybe greyed out) for non-clustered, and a different (or not greyed-out) icon for the clustered. You already include the field size, so…

  6. When I find I want to define my own table Alias within SQL Prompt, I must go to the menu, click SQL Prompt, scan down for "Options", scan down for "Aliases", click "New" and then do something useful.

    Please obviate ALL THIS, by giving a right-click fastpath to "Add Alias" while in the script editor. If the table name happens to already exist, please position the list at it (just in case SQL Prompt had issues...)

    It is very laborious to have to navigate through all these clicks just to add an alias while in the code.

  7. If I am running an "ALTER" or "CREATE" or "DROP", etc. Have SQL Prompt automatically refresh suggestions after my call.

  8. Hi,

    it would be extremely useful to allow the user to disable a code analysis rule for specific cases and not just on a global scope.

    E.g.
    cast(cast(0 as binary) pops up the issue BP008 (CAST/CONVERT to var types without length) which my be correct for certain cases but not always.

    It would be very hand if I could tell the analyzer to not give any warning for this single line, perhaps by adding a pseudo comment like --##BP008 or similar.

    This comment would temporarily disable the warning for this single line/case but not for the rest of a script.

  9. Extended Events is a great feature in SQL Server. Without support for this in SQL Prompt makes it incomplete.
    I know we have a GUI for it in SQL Server 2012. But it will quite sometime before everybody is on the latest version of SQL Server

  10. when doing simple aggregation such as sum(column), it would be nice if the column name would be aliased after the agg automatically. if this is a single column in the function then make the alias the column name. when multiple then create square brackets and move cursor into bracket after closing agg with a ")"

  11. What is near the cursor tends to be data that should not be covered over. I need to see it in order to complete my statement.

  12. I work on the same databases on a regular basis. Many do not have foreign keys and do not used identically named column names in tables that I'm joining.

    I repeatedly have to specify the same several columns in the join condition.

    I'd love a way for SQLPrompt to either remember join clauses I've previously used, or allow me to specify default join conditions for pairs of tables (or both).

  13. When the mouse pointer is hovered over a table or stored procedure etc, an intelli-sense like link is shown which can clicked to bring up the object definition, which disappears when something else is selected.

    My suggestion would be a pin feature, so that we can keep the object definition quick info box visible on the screen for reference instead of it disappearing.

  14. I do not see Intellisense for AZURE sql. Please, please, please. There's code formatting, but no actual intellisense like ssms.

  15. Enabled Intellisense conflicts with SQL Prompt and needs to be disabled. This also disables Code Folding feature (Outline Statements) of SSMS, which is very useful for large coding projects.
    It would be helpful if SQL Prompt were to offer the similar feature.

  18. Hello,

    I try some Add ins for sql server and i found a very interesting and useful functionnality on Softtree sql assistant.
    When we have a very large Stored procedure for example, with several BEGIN and END , softtree have a functionality when i place the mouse on BEGIN to [Jump to end] to find the corresponding END, the opposite is also true, when i Place the mouse on END [Jump to begginning].
    This functionnlity is very very useful.
    I hope you consider developing the same functionality in your SQL Prompt.

    Best regards,
    Luis

  19. I like the new feature to put recently-selected items at the top of the list for Intellisense. However, when I have typed an exact match, I would like to see Intellisense elevate that exact object to the top of the list.

    For example, suppose I have recently selected a table named "dbo.OrderDetail", and suppose that there is another table in the same database called dbo.Order. With the new feature, I cannot access "dbo.Order" as the top candidate, because it is a partial match of "dbo.OrderDetail," and so SQLPrompt puts that name at the top.

    In a nutshell, I would like…

  20. When I use the OPENQUERY syntax to retrieve data across servers, SQL Prompt does not discover the metadata (column names, data types, etc.) of the fields returned.

    My suggestion is that you add support within SQL Prompt to make metadata for fields retrieved by OPENQUERY available just like you do for linked servers.
