Since Toad 12.8 has been released, the “filters for sessions” tab on the session browser has been removed, and the filters are now available from the “Filters button”.
However, I miss the display of the current filter, that was immediately visible when looking at the “filter” poplist, in Toad 12.7.
I mean : now when a filter like “STATUS - ACTIVE” is selected, nothing can show it to me.
So, I’m lured into believing I have currently 20 sessions on my database, whereas those are only 20 “active” ones and the real figure is 121 sessions.
Formerly I could see immediately the value of the filter “STATUS - ACTIVE” and know I had to change its value, in order to get the correct display of the sessions and avoid a mistake. Now, I’m blind !
Of course, the shape of the button is “red” when a filter is active, but :
I don’t know which one it is at first glance
since I’m permanently using “Exclude NULL and SYSTEM OS users”, the button is permanently red, whatever the value for session status is (even for "< none > ").
So, it there a way to get back the old Look & Feel of this feature ?
Or at least, keep the current way of selecting the status, but add a display of its current value ?
PS : same remarks for the refresh / refresh interval
