  1. Hi, all. I'm really enjoying using SQL Complete. One feature that's been missing from SSMS is a dark theme. There is a way to hack a "dark theme" -- by changing a setting in a configuration file, but it's incomplete; ‘Object Explorer’ and ‘Output Window’ keep their blindingly white backgrounds. Please consider adding this feature to SQL Complete. Thanks

  3. Would be great to be able to highlight multiple cells in the Results grid and then select "Copy as SQL values List". This would then create a single line, comma-separated list which could, for example, be pasted into a WHERE in () clause.

    Functionality must be able to detect whether you're copying integer or character values etc. If copying character values, SQL Complete should automatically enclose each value with single quotes

  4. Example 1:
    If you are using a NOT declared variable @var1, @var1 will get underlined and there is a tooltip with the error.
    On the tooltip there could be a suggestion: "add declare @var1 int".
    Example 2:
    If you are executing a procedure and you are missing some mandatory parameters then there could be the solution "add missing parameters" on the tooltip

  5. We have started using serverless SQL Pool in Synapse, on top of a data lake.

    In SSMS it behaves mostly as a "regular" SQL Server, however intellisense does not work at all with SQL Complete.
    Please implement intelllisense for Synapse.

  6. Include a formatting option to "Always include AS keyword for aliases". The goal would be to change

    SELECT
    *
    FROM
    [dbo].[Table1] [T]

    into

    SELECT
    *
    FROM
    [dbo].[Table1] AS [T]

    Note the AS added to the FROM clause. This option could be global (Misc group?) or could be a separate option for each relevant clause (SELECT for field names, FROM and JOIN for table names, etc.).

  7. It would be very helpful to be able to right click on a tab in SSMS and have the option to rename it.

    I currently have "SSMS Tools" installed to be able to accomplish this. Would be great to have the option in SQL Complete and be able to uninstall "SSMS Tools"

  9. When auto-expanding an insert or update statement by pressing the tab key, the column list provides default values for the columns. With DateTime and DateTime2 in particular, it would be helpful to configure if you want to use the UTC datetime or the current timezone. Our company exclusively stores datetimes in UTC, so to have this default this way would be extremely helpful!

    CREATE TABLE #tmp (ID INT, CreatedDateUtc DATETIME2, Name NVARCHAR(50))

    INSERT INTO #tmp (ID, CreatedDateUtc, Name)
    VALUES (0, SYSDATETIME(), N''); -- allow this to populate as SYSUTCDATETIME() or GETUTCDATE(), depending on DATETIME2 vs DATETIME

  10. In SQL Complete, I would love an option that lets you Format Selection but only changes the casing to what you have specified in your active profile. It would leave all other formatting as is.

  12. I very often use T-SQL to create a series of T-SQL commands to be run.
    I need to ctrl-C+open new window+ctrl-V+F5 to accomplish that, and it works.
    However, a nice feature would be to just be able to select the commands in the query result window, and choose "execution" from the shortcut menu, and have SQL Complete do all the additional work automagically.

  13. The standard filtering in Management Studio Object Explorer is rudimentary at best. I lack the ability to select multiple values, and use drop downs to do so. Or even better, use complex queries (with and/or/not), and maybe even save and reuse these for daily administration (much like snippets).

  14. I previously used SSMSBoost. There was a feature, Query Post-Execution Handlers, that included Results per Email as an option. This feature leveraged PowerShell as the engine, perhaps because it was a Windows installation, and a "script generator" dialog box that converted selected options and variables into a PowerShell script and email message. I would have added a screen capture of this interface, but this post won't accept attachments. The feature also accepted a threshold so it would only apply to queries that exceed a specified number of seconds. It was nice to be able to set this up for long…

  15. I would like the ability to change the connection on multiple tabs in a single action. Currently, if I am testing in one environment with multiple tabs open, I need to change each connection individually. I would like a way to specify a new connection for multiple tabs.

  16. I would like the options to enable such a setting that when procedures, functions, etc. are opened for editing, all regions would automatically collapse. There could also be a keyboard shortcut that collapses and expands all regions

  17. When using the menu option "script object as..."
    1) when creating the new file have the name of the object be the filename. That way it is much easier to find in the tabs of SSMS instead of just another SQLqueryxx.sql file. This would make it much easier to find it again after switching away from that document.

    2) have some option setup to make it always be a create and not an alter. When I use the command its so I can see what the object is, I don't want to accidentally modify it so create means sql server…

  18. Keep the comments when formatting procedures! IT can't be that all comments are removed by the formatting process! That happens to my code when I execute ALTER PROCEDURE!
    OR: Give me the option to NOT format my code! I use the Express Version.

  19. Within SSMS, allow for the saving of filters.

    Justification:
    Particularly within large databases, often there is a reoccurring need to work with just a subset of tables. Sometimes, within different contexts, the particular subset changes. Being able to easily apply commonly used filters can allow increased productivity by eliminating frictional work (e.g. scrolling and hunting). Additionally, when filters across object types can be applied, there can be a lot of power. For example, being able to filter a particular set of SQL Agent Jobs, associated tables, and procedures related to those jobs, allows a troubleshooting developer to quickly set into…

  20. New option to Toggle commenting/uncommenting on the current line selections as most other editors have. Map to CONTROL-/ by default to match the commenting behavior of other editors.

    Why SSMS does not have this baked in is f'in ponderous.
