  1. 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"

  2. Have the ability to train intellisense when joining tables to learn which tables join together.

    so that in the future you can just type:
    "select * from employees e
    left join "

    and intellisense gives a drop down list of related tables, which when selected writes out the table name AND join columns.

    i.e.:
    "select * from employees e
    left join "
    and intellisense suggests: "manager m on m.managerID = e.managerID"

  7. Create SQL Complete Extension for Visual Studio Code
    More and more I find our developer teams using Visual Studio Code as single IDE for all development and scripting. While the SSMS and Visual Studio extensions are great, most of our developers are not using those tools as much and find it cumbersome to open up the supported IDE's to get SQL Complete's benefits.

  9. When joining tables I often get suggestions by SQL Complete for which tables to join. This is extremely useful and saves me a lot of time. Often times however there are multiple joins I want to make to different tables. But I can only select one join at a time. Selecting multiple suggestions with a ctrl+left click or something similar in the suggestions box would be a great addition for my workflow.

  10. it would be great if you add an icon for fast switching between Formatting Profiles in toolbar, rather than going to menu bar SQL Complete>Options>Formatting>Profiles>[select]>Activate>[OK].
    The lack of this feature makes it almost impractical to use multiple formatting in one script.

    Could you please let us know after what actions exactly it started happening and what exactly happens when you press the mentioned key combination?

    Please also specify what versions and editions of dbForge SQL Complete, SSMS or VS you are using.

  12. An option to not suggest other databases while populating the suggestion dropdown would be nice. In our system, we have discrete databases for each client, and so our development machines have hundreds of databases on them. When attempting to type a table name, it is not uncommon for SQL Complete to suggest a database name that matches the abbreviation, but for our use case this will never be ideal (queries are basically never ran across databases, and when they are we can deal with having to manually type out the database name).

    At the very least, I think it would…

  13. Provide a facility for us to easily access our snippets from anywhere and share with the community.The Community should be able to upload or browse for interesting and useful snippets.

    Possibly allow to search for snippets online. much like how VS2010+ allows to find extensions.

  14. I need fast way to format selected text using several formatting styles, specified previously.
    The formatting style specified manually into hotkey (for example, Ctrl+K, Ctrl+F, Ctrl+1 - first style, Ctrl+K, Ctrl+F, Ctrl+2 - second style and etc.).

    If I see a very long value clause:
    INSERT INTO dbo.Table
    VALUES ('111111','222222','333333','444444','555555')
    I select the code and apply another style like this:
    INSERT INTO dbo.Table
    VALUES (
    '111111',
    '222222',
    '333333',
    '444444',
    '555555'
    )

    The hotkey Ctrl+K, Ctrl+F, Ctrl+1 is very hard to push, it is for example.
    Maybe you will think of a more simple alternative, but of course without mouse usage.

  15. When you type "insert into table(" popup with check-boxes shows up. After you select desired columns you have to add 'values' part manually.

    It would be nice if after selection of desired columns and typing ")" 'values' part shows up with preset only for selected columns.

  16. I love the "format document" and "format selection" features and would be interested in a "unwrap document" and "unwrap selection" feature.

    I use Notepad++ to do it currently but it is required when trying to paste SQL Code in Visual Studio.

    All it does is turn the code into 1 line...

    Thanks
    Yann

  17. When generating the INSERT INTO statement after typing INSERT INTO [TableName] and hitting tab, it would be helpful in the VALUES list, in addition to showing the default value, if the column name was included. For example -
    INSERT INTO Users
    VALUES (DEFAULT /ID/, '' /FirstName/, '' /LastName/)

    This way, for wide tables, you don't have to count column to keep track of which column you are working with.

  19. I would like the option to specify that queries under a certain number of characters be formatted to be on a single line. This would also apply to subqueries so that if they are over the specified limit it follows the formatting rules already in place for subqueries but places simple subqueries on a single line.

    So

    SELECT
    *
    FROM
    TABLE
    WHERE
    COL1 = 5;

    would become

    SELECT * FROM TABLE WHERE COL1 = 5;

    and

    SELECT
    COL1,
    COL2,
    COL3,
    COL4,
    CASE WHEN COL5 = 50 THEN 'A' ELSE 'B' END
    FROM
    TABLE
    WHERE
    COL1 IN (
    SELECT
    COLB
    FROM…

  20. SQL Prompt has a fantastic feature that allows selected text to be wrapped up by pressing control + selecting snippet that utilizes the SELECTEDTEXT value. This is great for wrapping up text in "Begin try", "comment blocks" and other selection oriented snippets.
