Below is the list of fixes and improvements in Active Query Builder WinForms Edition v.126.96.36.199.
+ The new property DisableCodeCompletion is added to SqlTextEditor and ExpressionEditor components. + MakeLowercase() and MakeUppercase() methods are added into SqlTextEditor. Corresponding hotkeys (Ctrl+U, Ctrl+L) and context menu items are implemented. + The new properties AddLinkedObjects and DeleteUnusedObjects are added to the QueryBuilder.LinkOptions group. They allow to use the component without query building area. Fields should be dragged from the database objects tree directly to the columns grid in this mode. The AddLinkedObjects instructs the component to add necessary objects to join the newly added object with existing objects. For example, using the Northwind database, by adding Orders and Products tables to the query, the [Order Details] table will be added automatically and joins will be set according to the foreign keys. The DeleteUnusedObjects property instructs the component to remove objects from the query if their fields are not used in the query and these objects are no longer used to link other objects. These properties are not usable now since the query building area can not be hidden now and the fields are not shown in the tree. These features will be added in the new minor version.

We have been using Active Query Builder for over a year and must say that both the product and support have been outstanding!
We chose Active Query Builder due to its flexibility and features, but have been truly pleased by its power and hidden capabilities. ...
In summary Active Query Builder provides excellent components, great support and a very flexible feature set. It has allowed us to provide features to our end users that I did not think would be possible in the first release of our new tools and in a timeframe that was much shorter than planned. I would recommend that anyone dealing with databases in the .Net world should be aware of this component and its capabilities!
