Toad insight - parameter hints and picklist after period


#1

Is there a way to get the parameter hints or picklist after period using
shortcut keys on demand instead of from options?
For example in toad, control space opens the code template - is there a similar
shortcut for these two?

Thanks


#2

You mean like CTRL+. or CTRL+T ?


#3

Yes, CTRL+T does the trick for the picklist after period. Is there a similar
option for parameters after typing right parent?


#4

That should just happen auto-magically

And there is an option to control the delay for such pop-ups – search under
options and set it lower if you want it to happen much faster

It does! But the problem with setting that option is that it prompts the parameter when I already know what it is going to be.
dbms_output.put_line is a great example where I dont want the auto-magic popup.
It is a bit annoying when you are working over a slow connection while toad retrieves the arguments.
This prevents user input until the parameters are retrieved.
I was wondering if there is a way to unset this in the options and make it pop on demand using a shortcut.

Thanks,

There’s a lot of work underway for Toad 10.5 in this area.

You might want to check out the beta and provide feedback…
