Description Roman Mostyka 2008-10-31 14:22:05 UTC
1. Open "New Connection" dialog, press tab key until "Name" drop down list is reached and press Down key. "Java DB
(Network)" driver will be changed to "JDBC-ODBC Bridge" and dialog will be in "Direct URL Entry" mode.
2. Press tab key until "Name" drop down list is reached and press Down key.

Result: "JDBC-ODBC Bridge" will be changed to "MySQL" driver and dialog will be in "Direct URL Entry" mode. Is this mode
preferable to set by default? I think "Field Entry" mode is more preferable for supported drivers.

I'm not sure I agree.  It may be preferable to retain the mode you were in if possible, which
is what it does now I believe.  So I'm not sure which is better.

That's a tough one.  I think what I would like is if we remember the preferred entry mode for each type of driver,
versus globally for all drivers. 

However, I think this is an edge case.  Most people work with one and only one driver, and they pick a certain entry mode.

Reassigned to new owner.

This is an edge case, no plan to fix it now.
