ERs: Highlighting, a Test Window and Split Screen


#1

This is what happens when you tell people you are active on the TOAD forum:

My wish list. Please make it happen ASAP:

  1. Highlighting a word will highlight all other instances of that word (very common nowadays – except in TOAD !).
  2. Test window a-la PL/SQL Developer. That is, a fixed area of the window that has the bind variables – both in and out.
  3. Editor window split screen (like Word, and other text editors) – ie two independently scrollable windows of the same file. Each window reflecting any changes in the other.

I’ll buy you a case of beer if you can get all three in the next release of TOAD – now there’s a challenge.

#3 that is J

I thought Michael put that in there last release – review the yahoo posts
– it was added J

So that’s some beers already on tap J

#2, you want a panel to auto-show the inputs passed to a program and the
returned values?

I like this idea. Esp if we could have one place to see REC Cursors and whatever
else is returned. You might want to put it up on the TOADBeta forum…


#5

And there’s just so much open space in the editor these days – why
not add another panel J

I get and like the idea – but the real estate questions scares me. Of
course I already turn off much of the editor offerings – so it’s an
easy user customization issue. But then again so are user customizable menus and
toolbars – and so few people make effective use of that it seems ……


#6

Replace the REF Cursor panel, and you don’t incur any additional real
estate J

We have the capability to do number 3, but it’s not in there yet. For the
fall release this would be a good idea. Number 1 is a freebie as well.
I’ll add both of these to the todo list.

I’ll take a look at #2 for the next release. No promises but we’re always open
to new ideas.

Nice one gents, I’d love to see #1 as well.

#2 I’m sure we discussed on the forums before and threw around a few ideas.
