Changing Connections on single Editor tab


#1

Why is the “Change Connection” option not available unless you have two
connections open?

I have a single tab open and I want to change from test server to prod server. I
have to go to the connections and double click the prod server connection, it
opens an editor window I do not want open and then I can click on my test editor
window and right click on the tab and select “Chance Connection”.

It would be nice to be able to right click on any tab and select either a
different connector like you see above but if you only have one connection open,
to have a “New Connection” option which would change the connection of the
current editor window to the new connection. Then at that point, if I did a
right click on the tab, I would see the other open connection and a “New
Connection” tab selection.

Hi Matt,

The idea was to show valuable amount of connections instead of all registered.
From our perspective this is reasonable.

For instance, my list of connections (not full, it is just some state) contains
18 registered servers with several folders. Don’t you think it can be hard
to find what you really need right now?

I guess if you have 18 registered server, then yes, that would be too long of a
list. I currently only have 4. So I see where you are going here.

What I did was in Options/Database/General I deselected all options

and now I can right click on the other database connection I want to connect to
and connect it and then I have the ability to change connections on the editor
window without opening an unneeded editor.

This will work.

Thanks,

Matt
