Post Possible Bug with Capitalization Feature Reply with quote
For these examples I am using the “Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio” that comes with SQL Server 2005 SP1.

Scenario #1:
I added the keyword varchar to the list of keywords SQL Assistant will look for in SQL Server databases. When I type the following line the word varchar will be capitalized as I expect (note the space between the word varchar and the open parenthesis:
Code:
DECLARE @TradingPartnerName AS varchar (40)


If I entered the following line the word varchar will not be capitalized (no space between the word varchar and the open parenthesis):
Code:
DECLARE @TradingPartnerName AS varchar(40)


Scenario #2:
I enter the word begin on a line by itself and press Space before pressing Enter, the word begin will be capitalized. If I enter the word begin on a line by itself and press Enter without first hitting Space, the word begin will not be capitalized.

Try entering "varchar(" as a keyword.

For SQL Assistant all keywords are equal. It uses space, tab, enter and semicolon as keyword separator symbols, any other symbol makes entered text a non-keyword

That works if I enter a space after the open parenthesis, but I would rather have a space between the VARCHAR and the open parenthesis and a space after the open parenthesis and the number.

You might want to consider adding the open parenthesis character as a keyword separator or better yet make the keyword separators user configurable.

What about Scenario #2? The Enter key does not seem to be working as a keyword separator.

For this to work, you need to install a more recent build. As far as I remember, handling for the enter key was added couple of days ago in build 1.0.48 -- the last one is 1.0.49, which was made available today.

This works just fine for me. I tried several different types of SQL editors and in all of them I found it working.

Which editor are you using?

The application that has a problem is Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio Version 9.00.2047.00 (this is the version that comes with SQL Server 2005 SP1).

SQL Query Analyzer Version 8.00.2039 does not have this problem.

I see now. I can reproduce this in SSMS, but it works everywhere else.
