Thanks. I can reproduce it now. It only behaves this way if table goes first and view goes second. I will submit this info to the development team. Hope it is simple to fix.

Post Another posible issue Reply with quote
When I try to add an WHEN clause after an enter on a SELECT DISTINCT or SELECT * the WHERE clause goes 2-3 TABS on left.
This is not happening on a SELECT with fields.
I've attached some screen shots to illustrate this.
It's not affecting the sql but it's not looking fine :)
Windows Vista, SQL Server 2005, SQL Assistant 3.1.12





Hope this helps.

Thanks for the feedback.

This is a known issue in 3.1.0x which we fixed in most recent development builds. The auto-format as you type code feature makes WHERE keyword automatically align with the FROM keyword part instead of SELECT. If you start FROM on a new line then the result looks good but if you leave it on a previous line, then it doesn't look good. The scope is not limited to WHERE. It uses previous keyword to calculate the required indent, instead of the first keyword in the statement.

The fix should be available in a public 3.1 release.

Thank's
I've got it.
But now SQL Assistant can't connect to my SQL Server(I saw you've changed the Connect dialog box).
I can't select a server from dropdown list (when I select a server it goes to the database field).
Even write manual them and try both ODBC and ASP.NET connections gave's me an error of wrong connection string.
So I've installed again 3.1.12.
Hope this helps with development.

Hi,

I'm not sure how you are connecting and from which editor. Yes, the internal connection handling is very different now as we are adding more flexibility to it and allowing generic support for ODBC-based and ADO.NET-based connections, basically allowing to choose any driver to handle the connection and customize some other parameters, such as connect and command timeouts.

Yet, if you are using one of default editor targets, the connection should be intercepted and shared with the editor without a need to enter/configure it manually.

Please create a separate topic with details about the non-working connection and I'll try to help you enter the correct parameters.

Thanks
