Loading BLOBs

I have two issues with BLOBs

  1. I can’t see how to load them within a result (which was possible with the Toad for MySQL Freeware)

  2. If my application updates a BLOB I have to disconnect my connection and reconnect to see the update (not the case with the Toad for MySQL Freeware)

Any help would be appreciated


In version Toad Edge 1.2.0 you may import blob into the database from the result set. Just click button with pencil icon "Enable Modification" and then open context menu for cell with BLOB and click item "Import BLOB from file...".

The Refresh (F5) in Detail or query re-run should be sufficient to update the BLOB if the BLOB value is changed outside the Toad Edge application.
