Simple object search

Postby rlrcstr » Fri Jun 22, 2012 9:21 am

It would be nice to have a simple object search... For instance if I select Triggers thre should be a way to just get all the triggers in the DB.

Then the "Select in Object Explorer" can take me right there. Just be a faster way to navigate the object tree, I think.

That's an interesting idea. You're saying that the search should start by showing all objects and typing into the search field just narrows it down from everything?

Sort of, yes... Maybe just when a subset of object types is selected. I just ran into a scenario where I had to touch a series of triggers. It would have been nice to be able to just a quick list of them and then navigate directly to them in the object tree. Otherwise it's a bunch of expand, expand, expand, edit, collapse, collapse, collapse...

Just a thought... Would be quicker for some stuff than scripting the change.
