"Code Editor" for TMSQuery

Post by Bandolero » Fri 11 Jan 2008 22:48

Hello,

This week I updated to version 4 and found out that the option to click on the ellipsis [...] of the SQL property of a TMSQuery has changed from the built-in "String List Editor" to the CoreLab's "MSQuery Editor"

This is ok except the CoreLab MSQuery Editor does not have the option to edit the SQL text in the IDE. The "Code Editor..." button that TQuery has.

The CoreLab editor is ok, but the IDE has many more tools and options that make it easy to work on the query text.

For example: Try using TAB to align text in the Corelabs MSQuery Editor. :x

Is there a way to edit the MSQuery SQL text in the IDE editor? or
How about a way to make the elllipsis go to the old String List Editor?

Thank you,

Franklin

Thank you for information. We will consider support of the standard design time editor in the next SDAC builds/versions.
Meantime, you can install SynEdit components to enable syntax highlighting in design time editors of SDAC.

Thank you,
I really hope this is set back to the way it was before version 4.

Where can I get these SynEdit Components?
Would they allow me to Edit the SQL Text using TAB and Search/Replace?

You can download it at this page: http://synedit.sourceforge.net/.

No, SynEdit does not support the TAB key and Search/Replace.

Thank you.

Do you know if this has been approved to be changed back to the way it worked previous to version 4?

Obviously I'm do not know how this was implemented but, it would seem to require a simple removal of the ellipsis event handler.

I just downloaded version 4.50 and it seems this problem has NOT been addressed.

Any idea of when?

By some reasons we had to put off this feature. Now we are working on it and it will be for sure included in the next build. As soon as we implement it, we will let you know.
