I wanted to check a view definition, so I hit F4 to request a describe pop-up.
Next I want to click the script tab, but I miss and click the data tab instead.
So I immediately click the scrip tab, which opens fine.
Once I’m done I try to close the describe window for this view, but I get an error message.
Something like query still executing. Ok - that’s because I hit the data tab which must have started a query on the view, which takes about an hour to complete
So I hit escape a few times, then try again to close the describe window for this particular view.
Now the whole Toad session hangs and I can either wait for as long as it takes Oracle to build a result set, or I can have windows kill my session and hope to recover work in progress upon restart.
Please don’t make the describe pop-up hang. I can live with repeated error messages in case I’m not aborting the query-in-progress in the proper way. That’s no problem.
Just give me a chance to correct my errors, please?
