How can we improve SQL Complete?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Provide quick access to the object definition SQL

    E.g. by implementing the command that opens object definition in the new document.

    • Goto Type/Database Object

      Resharper, a popular addon for visual studio has a nifty feature where you can hit ctrl+t to open a compact search window where you can type part of a type name, and a list of clickable suggestions is presented as you type.

      http://www.jetbrains.com/resharper/features/navigation_search.html#Go_to_Type

      It would be quite handy to have something similar for Management Studio.
      Clicking any of the matches could open a new query window with an ALTER statement prepared.

      • Highlight Unused Variables

        Declare @var1 INT, @var2 INT
        SELECT @var1 = 1, @var2 = 2
        SELECT @var1 [@var1]
        -- @var2 should be highlighted in the declaration since its assigned value is never used.

        • Save Execution History

          Save a history of your executed SQL statements and allow you to search that history.

          Also save the current session so when you open SSMS you can click a button to open all the queries you has open when you last closed SSMS.

          • Suggest WHERE conditions

            Let's say, there are tables A and B linked with a foreign key.

            Currently, dbForge SQL Complete suggests joining conditions:

            SELECT *
            FROM dbo.A a
            JOIN dbo.B b ON ->> a.id = b.id

            As part of this feature, dbForge SQL Complete could also suggest conditions in the following queries:

            SELECT *
            FROM dbo.A a
            OUTER APPLY (
            SELECT TOP 1 *
            FROM dbo.B b
            WHERE ->> a.id = b.id
            ) t

            SELECT
            *
            , (
            SELECT TOP 1 ', '
            FROM dbo.B b
            WHERE ->> a.id = b.id
            )
            FROM dbo.A a

            SELECT *
            FROM dbo.A a
            WHERE NOT EXISTS( …

            • Add option to include (NOLOCK) when auto-completing

              Due to the nature of our data, we use NOLOCK on most of our queries. It would be useful for us to be able to automatically have (NOLOCK) included when part of a statement is auto-completed. It may be useful to have it so that this option can be turned on only in specific databases.

                Everytime I upgrade, the installer forces me to exit Visual Studio. However, I only install SQL Complete for Management Studio. Please give me an option to ignore that error message

                  • Extended Outline - Custom Collapsable Regions (like C#) with Comments

                    Introduce Regions like #region in C# for collapsable sections. This regions should have a "name" or comment and should be displayed in document outline for navigation. This has lot of benefits in large sql code files for better orientation and navigation.

                      • "Folding" queries

                        It would be interesting to be able to "fold" and "unfold" a query from a single line state (still showing the full query) to a multiline, formatted state.

                        The following query, for example,

                        | |
                        |+| SELECT * FROM SomeTable WHERE SomeField = 3.14;
                        | |

                        would unfold to

                        | |
                        |- | SELECT
                        | | *
                        | | FROM
                        | | SomeTable
                        | | WHERE
                        | | SomeValue = 3.14;
                        | |

                        and back.

                          • Suggestion: Option to switch between select format styles

                            Here is a suggestion to allow the formatter (to be set to and) to automatically change the formats of declaring a field name and its definition.

                            i.e.
                            Style 1: select [field1] = a+b
                            Style 2: select a+b [field1]
                            Style 3: select a+b as [field1]

                              • Execute Current Statement - Key binding

                                PLEASE, allow user to change the keybinding for 'Execute Current Statement' , this should not be that difficult. Believe it or not, I have to move my hands on the keyboard quite a bit to type 'Ctl-Shift-E' .

                                If you can't open it up for a custom key binding , then at least give some options , like ' Alt-E ' would be very nice.

                                  I would love to see an option where you can right click on a row and say generate insert script for the row. You could also extend this to select multiple rows and limit column selection.

                                    • Ability to select different formatting for alias and schema

                                      The only deal breaker is the inability to generate upper case table alias, without also making all schemas uppercase.

                                      • Include Snippets in Import and Export Settings

                                        It would be great if there was an option to import/export snippets in the "SQL Complete->Import and Export Settings".

                                        This way snippets could easily be shared between team members.

                                        • Include underscore in CamelCase interpolation

                                          In our schema, we have the unfortunate convention (if you can call it that...) of including underscores in many table and sproc names. For instance, a report sproc might be named Report_SalesByChannel. It would be awesome if the CamelCase interpretation either completely ignored the underscores in the name while providing the suggestions (so typing rsbc would suggest the above named report), or make it so the _ is one of the interpreted characters, which would allow r_sbc to again suggest the above sproc. Right now any stored procedure with an underscore cannot be quickly suggested by any abbreviation (just by…
