Description yudiset 2008-07-29 10:15:33 UTC
[ BUILD # : 200807290015 ]
[ JDK VERSION : 1.6.0_07 ]

It would be great if in the Database Explorer, we can see the info
about field type, length, null (or not null), index of each field
when we access a table.

For example: id [char(2), not null]
This way, we can see all of the type & length of the fields of a
table straight away.

At the moment, we have to right click on each field and go to the
Properties menu.

Yes, I think this would be a very useful enhancement.
Comment 3 _ ahimanikya 2008-07-29 17:38:07 UTC
DataView shows column info when user hover on column header, may be we could do this similar style to be consistent.
