Searching within the tree
SQL Manager for MySQL provides an ability to search for items within the DB Explorer tree. Searching for items may be useful if you have a lot of database objects, and it may be sometimes hard to find the one you need.
- using the Find Item dialog
Note that you can specify whether the search will be performed within the entire tree or within the currently selected node only: use the Search by categories option available within the Tools | DB Explorer section of the Environment Options dialog.
- using the Search Panel
Type in the first letters in the edit-box, and the corresponding object will be highlighted in the tree, as displayed in the picture below. The buttons allow you to define the search direction.
By default, the Search Panel is activated in the upper area of DB Explorer. To disable the panel, right-click within the panel and deselect the checkbox at the corresponding popup menu item.
Hint: The Search Panel is dockable, i.e. you can drag it to any location within the DB Explorer form.
