Lost connection to DB



I had Code Tester running (Test Builder screen) when my connection to the DB went down. Once the connection was back up, I couldn’t find a way to exit the Test Builder window - whether I try to Save & Close or just Close (w/out saving) it fails w/ no db connection. It seems like I could recover if I could just get back to the main window where I could “Reconnect”.

Is there a way to close aside from End Task?




Did you know that you can also press a Reconnect button in the top left corner of the Test Builder (left-most button in the toolbar)? This should re-establish your connection and allow you to connect.

Except…what version of Code Tester are you on? I believe that was added to the toolbar in 1.8.



No, I did not realize that.
Perfect, thanks!
