In the 32-bit version of Toad for sql server, in the explorer, there is a right-click context menu item that permitted changing the database connection. I can't seem to find or configure the same context menu in the 64-bit version. Is it just not available in the 64-bit version, or am i missing some configuration item?
Not sure where you were right-clicking, but there's at least three easy ways to switch connection context. See snap below. Hope this helps.
So I was referring specifically to the context menu on the explorer tab. On the 32-bit version when I right-click an explorer tab I have the “Change Connection” option in the context menu. In the 64-bit version, that option is missing. It is still available on an “edit” tab as in your figure. I was wondering if there was a way to include it on the explorer tab – as if I missed an option somewhere.
Ah, thanks. You're referring to the Database Explorer. Can you supply a screen snap of that right-click menu for the 32-bit Toad off the DB Explorer tab? I can't I don't recall that the right-click off this tab ever had a Change Connection" entry. Thanks.
OK, let's get one of our Dev team members to chime in here... it appears that they took this capability out in the later releases. I don't see an option to toggle the connection change on/off.
BTW, what version number of Toad/SQL Server was this working in?
Hi, you're right in the latest releases it does not work on 64bit. I tried 6.8 and it worked fine there on both bitnesses. Let me discuss whether we can bring it back.
I've opened a defect TMB-2399.
the 32-bit version i tried is 6.8
