Underscores and converting to initial caps in Toad 12


#1

If I select the following text…

foo bar foo_bar

…and click on the “convert to initial caps” button on the editor toolbar, I get this result with Toad v12:

Foo Bar Foo_bar

With Toad 11 (as with the Oracle INITCAP() function) I would get

Foo Bar Foo_Bar

i.e. an underscore is treated in the same way as a space between words. My (stupid, but out of my control) coding standards require the latter form of initcapping. Is there any way I can get Toad 12 to revert to the old way of doing it?


#2

Oops. Fixed for next beta.

i.e. an underscore is treated in the same way as a space between words.

This is true if underscore is not included in the set of “Additional word characters” in Options|Editor|Behavior. If included in that set then “foo_bar” is treated as one word and only the “f” is capitalized. That set of word characters affects CTRL+Left|Right,
CTRL+Shift+Left|Right, dbl-click word select, and init caps.

Interesting.

I removed the _ from the list of additional characters (actually, it was the only one there). Out of interest, I added / to the list. It still capitalises aaa/bbb_ccc as Aaa/Bbb_ccc - so the list of word characters doesn’t seem to make any difference one way or the other.

Presumably it will do after the fixed version gets out of beta.

Exactly. It’s completely broken in Toad 12, but next beta it should be good to go.
