Spell check on comments.
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.21 votes
Align aliases, commas, datatypes and expressions at the next tab stop
I align aliases, commas, datatypes and expressions at the first tab stop following the longest element in the list. See examples below:
-- Tilde character used as space replacement to cope with HTML formatting
-- 2-character tabs are assumed below
-- In a fixed-space font, the commas, = signs, data types and AS keywords would all line up vertically
Right-click highlighted table and "Create Alias"
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.15 votes
Have column selector available on insert statements
I noticed as a new user that when I type in INSERT INTO [table_name] ( column1, etc) that the column selector option is grayed out. When building insert statements that use a select to provide the data being inserted I have to manually select each column. Could you enable column picker in an insert statement?5 votes
Add a new "Modify" menu item when right clicking views in Object Explorer
To get an ALTER script for an existing stored proc or UDF you just need to right click it in Object Explorer and select Modify. For views you can't do this. You have to select "Script view as.." then "Alter to..." then "New query editor window". It's only two extra mouse clicks but they are two very annoying mouse clicks! I was hoping this would have come back for SQL2012 as you used to be able to do this in SQL2000, but it hasn't. Redgate to the rescue?18 votes
JOIN hints based on a view's underlying table's foreign key constraints
When joining views, the only suggestions currently available are for columns with the same name. It would be nice if, for simple enough views, SQL Prompt looked at the underlying tables for foreign key constraints and use them in the suggestions.33 votes
Smart Rename should include renaming a Schema
Self explanatory... Need to right-click a user-defined schema and be able to generate a script that effects the scema rename and code within all affected objects. Would be great to add a list of additional databases in which to look for candidate objects to change: triggers, SPs, UDFs...12 votes
Automatic Suggestion Refresh
If I am running an "ALTER" or "CREATE" or "DROP", etc. Have SQL Prompt automatically refresh suggestions after my call.16 votes
The team are currently reprioritising this suggestion with a view to picking it up during 2019.
Better memory management
Sql Prompt is a memory hog and causes SSMS to routinely be my biggest consumer of available memory. I just opened SSMS and refreshed the objects in a rather large database and SSMS is consuming 572 MB of memory. When you compare this to the 92 MB that SSMS uses on a fresh start up the difference is quite shocking.14 votes
Format pasted-in list
I need a way to format a group of text items into a SQL query that I'm going to use for an "IN ('item1','item2','item3')" clause within the WHERE clause. There's got to be a simpler way than manually keying in all the single quotes and commas, particularly when the comma triggers SQL Prompt to start trying to prompt each time, so I have to add an Esc keypress to get SQL Prompt out of the way.7 votes
warn against data truncation
I would be nice if SQL-prompt could warn against posible data truncation.
Like assigning a int value to a tinyint field/variable or assigning a varchar(30) to a varchar(3).
I want it both at an global analysis (like find invalid objects) and in the current scrip edit (while modifying a trigger / procedure / function).13 votes
Automatically find unused variables and parameters
I would be nice to have an option i behavior to automatically finding unused variables and parameters. (like suggestions / definitions)83 votes
Extend 'Find Invalid objects' to find other 'problems'. E.g. unaliased fields, wildcards etc.
It would be lovely to find other elements in the database that may not stop it from working right now but are 'problems waiting to happen'. Other examples might be to search for field names that clash with reserved terms.11 votes
Bulk Smart Rename
Enhance Smart Rename to accept a list of name changes.
Even if it runs the existing smart rename and concatenates the scripts it would save a lot of data entry time versus doing each change one at a time.
You should require fully qualified names in the import data to avoid ambiguity errors.57 votesunder review · email@example.com responded
We’re going to be reviewing this over the next couple of months, which would be released via the SQL Prompt for Teams EAP (get in touch if you want to know more).
In the meantime please add any other information that you think would be useful.
Better tab management
1)Automatically name tabs generated by modifying a stored procedure in the Object Explorer. I noticed you added the functionality to right-click on a procedure name in-line and generate an ALTER script. That's AWESOME, and even more awesome is the fact that the tab is named by default. Usually tabs in SMS have some dynamically-generated name that's useless.
2) add ability to rename a tab without saving the contents of the tab. Just a right-click->Rename
3) Hovering over a tab should give you a pop-up with the first dozen or so lines of text in that tab.94 votes
More "power" to tabs
1) add a possibility to set custom colours to tabs
2) pin in/pin out tabs
3) automatically set colour for executing queries tabs
4) add possibility to pop-up windows when query execution finish13 votes
SQL Prompt API
I think having an API to format generated SQL scripts, whether it be from the SQL Compare API or another process like SMO objects, to able to apply the formats saved in SQL Prompt.32 votesunder review · firstname.lastname@example.org responded
It would be great if you could let us know more about how you’d use a Prompt API / command line version of Prompt.
