Active Query Builder VCL Edition 1.28 introduces new SQL formatting options.

We're glad to announce the new minor version of Active Query Builder VCL Edition. You can evaluate the new version by requesting the trial. Customers can download the new version in the Customer's area.

What's new in the Active Query Builder VCL Edition version 1.28?

  • On adding a stored procedure (table-valued function), a prompt for its parameters does not appear anymore. Instead, you can open the datasource properties dialog (by selecting the Properties context menu item or by double-clicking on a datasource) and edit procedure parameters there.
  • Descriptions of database objects and fields are shown in hints in the Metadata Tree.
  • The new OnMetadataTreeNodeGetCaptionText and OnMetadataTreeNodeGetHintText events have been added to customize the text of captions and hints for nodes of the Metadata Tree.
  • The new group of properties has been made to customize formatting for IF and CASE clauses: TSQLBuilderSelectFormat.ConditionalOperatorsFormat.
  • The new TSQLBuilder.SubqueryTextFromNewLine property has been made to break line between the sub-query text and the parentheses enclosing it.
  • The new LinkOptions.DefaultLinkType property has been added. Using it you can prescribe to create left, right or full outer join instead of inner join on linking tables by drag'n'drop.
  • SQL Text Editor (Professional): The new TextEditorOptions.UseTabCharacter property has been added.
  • Several fixes for high-resolutions have been made.
