Hi there,

is it possible to have placeholders/variables in the filename I specify in the Export grid rows dialogue? I'd like to do multiple exports of the same query at different points of time. It would be great if I could just have a timestamp in the filename automatically.

Maybe this is already there and I haven't found the doc yet. If not, I'd like to suggest that.

Thanks a lot!

Not yet. It's in the more comprehensive SQL export (Tools > Export database), but not in the grid export dialog. Nice idea. However, that needs to be documented somewhere in the dialog itself. Suggestions on how that could look like?

Funny, you get a pretty obvious tooltip that informs you about the feature but I had never noticed it.

Komodo IDE has a handy drop-down list that accomplishes two goals:

1. Tells you about the feature
2. Allows to insert tokens

I think it's a pretty handy GUI.

Anse, does the "Embed picture" feature no longer work?

Nice! Think I'll add such a button to the grid export dialog. Hoping the other two buttons are still self explanatory..

It'd also be useful in the "Export database" dialogue and I suppose it could be shared code.

I like the Komodo thing. You're right, it has that, but I've not thought about it in this context. Another not so nice but effective way is how PuTTY handles it in its Logging Config. It just shows an explanation as text below the textbox. But I agree with kalvaro, the button is great.

Done in r4409. A list of placeholders is now present in the pulldown menu with the recent files.

Think I have to add such a pulldown to the SQL export dialog too, so it's more noticable.
