Greetings Vladka and team!
I know I haven’t been in here since version 3 went live, so I apologize for the delay. I finally have the latest beta on my machine and have run into a few issues.
An an environment note. I do have TDM 3 Commercial installed on my system and I run it in “Freeware” mode and each time I start things up I stay in that mode. When I went to install TDM3 Beta, I was asked which folder listings I wanted to use, and so I used the ones associated with TDM 3 Beta. With that said, here are some items.
For the bugs listed below, I started a new data model, targeting the SQL Server 2005 architecture. I have some custom Dictionary Types, schemas, and user groups added to this model.
In the stored procedure editor, I receive an “Exception 00E34EA3 Read of address 00000000” when selecting a schema in the permissions section. The general problem seems to be when I add multiple permissions and attempt to modify them without applying. If I add a single permission and then apply, then add another, things work fine. (Screenshot Provided)
Once I generate my SQL file for all of my items, I noticed that the stored procedure section does not put an AS after procedure declaration. I’m not sure if this is a S2K/S2K5 issue only or not, but the syntax for SQL Server stored procedures requires an AS after the declaration of the stored procedure name and any input/output parameters.
I think I made this suggestion with the previous beta cycle, but it would be nice to have the font used in the procedure section match the font used for the rest of the SQL generated sections (SQL, Before Procedure, After Procedure). I can see where the Notes section could be a separate tab, but ideally I’d like to see them all in the same fixed font category. The general section can stay as is.
Is there any way to add the Physical Model explorer as a tab to the section where the package explorer and the script explorer are, or to potentially add it as a dockable section to go with the Application View? I understand the benefits of having the MDI architecture with things such as stored procedures, but the physical model explorer seems to function better as a “Fixed” asset in my mind. Having it optionally dockable would allow those that like it as a free window to keep it as such. It could be that I’m in a unique boat, but I use the Physical Model Explorer exclusively when I’m working with my models.
Keep up the great work guys! I really appreciate the hard work done. Things are a lot smoother than when I first started working with the Toad Betas back in the day 8^D
