 Version 1.3.0.1

 

  • New data grid: Now it can work in two modes: "Load All Rows" and "Load Visible Rows". The first mode provides some additional features, such as filtering fields, sorting data be several fields, etc. However this mode works slower on tables with large amount of records. The second mode works just as in previous versions. According to this a new option "Load all rows mode as default" appeared on the Grid page of the Environment Options dialog, and in the popup menu a submenu appeared, which allows you to select a mode: "Load All Rows", "Load Visible Rows", or "Default". If you select the "Default" item, the mode is selected according to the option "Load all rows mode as default". The selected mode is stored individually for each table. You can also use another new option "Row multi-selection" on the Grid page of the Environment Options dialog. If this option is enabled, you can select multiple rows in a grid, but in this case navigation in tables with large amount of records is slower
  • Unicode database support - now you can define the client encoding and font char set in the Register Database and Register Host dialogs
  • Functions, returning SET OF are supported now. The appropriate options added to Function Editor
