I wouldn’t install this yet, I have confirmed with one of my colleagues that it breaks the Schema Browser when viewing packages - it doesn’t refresh the RHS when trying to view package contents. There are workarounds but it’s a bit of a pain.

You might want to wait until we’ve heard confirmation that this isn’t an issue for everyone.

This same issue is being discussed in the toadbeta group, but I haven’t seen a reply on this board yet. This issue only affects the tabbed-view Schema Browser. The work-around would be to switch to the drop-down view (which I think is better anyway) or the tree view until early Dec when 10.1.1 is released.

Hi Brad,

After many, many years using the tabs, I’ll use this issue to try the drop-down
view seeing as you recommend it.

Is the drop-down view order configurable like the tabs? It seems to be fixed
alphabetical.

As a workaround I added numbers before my most accessed areas so they appear at
the top of the list…

e.g.

1 Tables

2 Packages

Works nicely.

Cheers,

Kevin.

PS. Overall, loving TOAD 10 so far…

The order is just alphabetical. That’s a clever workaround though.


#6

I do the same! 1_Favorites J


#7

Same here, but I use a two digit number so I can maintain order once I am past
“9” (01, 02, 03,…10, 11…). I use the same numbering
pattern for my Project Manger: To Do List


#8

That is a good work-around. I usually just activate the drop-down and start
typing the object type I want to see


#9

Cheers Brad, I think I’ll use a combination of the two approaches.

I’m tellin’ ya, you won’t go back to tabbed view :slight_smile:


#11

You know, you might just be right!

As long as I’m not forced into tree mode at some point…all a bit SQL Dvloper
for my tastes… :wink:

I used to hate Tree view…but it works really good when looking at database
level objects like tablespaces, roles, etc.

What would be nice is if we could have a tree view that still had a dropdown
selector for ‘Schema’, and then had tree nodes for each of the
object types, would be like a best-of-both-worlds type scenario.


#13

Jeff, you can get that now with the Database Browser

Hehe - I won’t tell him if you don’t…

Personally, I’m looking forward to the “Minority Report” view in TOAD 20 -
that’s sure to please everyone!

Sorry,

Tried both tree view (too much info and too hard to find what I want –
usually in the same single schema that is not built on my username) and the
dropdown view (way too slow to get to things).

I like the tab view MUCH better, so I will just stay away from the patch.

Same here, I’m a fan of the Tab View (but I will give the dropdown another go - just for fun).

I have reinstalled TOAD 10 without the patch as I wasn’t coming across any of the issues reported as fixed…but I guess time will tell.

As a tip, your user settings are still there after uninstalling TOAD 10 so when you do another install you should be able to import them again (from Documents and Settings\xxx_xxx\Application Data\Quest Software\Toad for Oracle\10.0_uninstalled)

Second that; tabbed view is the only way to go. Tree View should be called ‘Scroll Forever View’, and dropdown requires an extra click to get to the object set you’re after. But I’m still glad they offer all 3 options. I have some old SQL*Nav users on my team that I made Toad converts of and they can’t break away from the tree.


#19

Tab view is fine, but I have like 30 tabs and it takes forever to
scroll…if I go to multi-line tab, I have a hard time finding the right
tab.

Treeview takes too many clicks.

Dropdown is a click, then a keystroke.

None are perfect, all are good. Kinda like political parties?


#20

True, I should qualify my opinion by the fact that I use multi-line and have my tabs honed down to 3 rows; if I needed to get at all the possible tabs a lot then multi-line does get cluttered and you spend time hunting for the right tab to hit. And using the dropdown would be better than using single line tabs. So many options…
