your proggy crashes directly after execution is complete and i switch to data tab...
ostap posted 6 years ago
after restart of the proggy ...it crashes everytime i try to access that table...
ostap posted 6 years ago
i see you do some smily replacements ...i hope you do it before render ...and not before saving to DB...
coz otherwise i've no way to post you the real SQL..

You do not really expect some serious reply to such ungracious statements, do you?
Tribal posted 6 years ago
@ostap: as you analyzed anses skills that good, why don't you do some better "proggy"? no, let me ask you another question: why do you use it anyway? no one's asking for anything here, all that anse wants is good reports on errors so it stays a good "proggy" like we all want it to be and maybe you should start doing something good to the people instead flaming on them...but often that just how pips compensate their frustrated life, so no offense to you, dude
ansgar posted 6 years ago
Thanks, tribal.

I already thought of deleting this post but ostap's arguments start to amuse me :)
ostap posted 6 years ago
Tribal is right ..i'm letting my steam out here...
Why i'm pissed off ? .. because i work on apple every fucking day of the week.
I'm not gonna include my wors experiences with that OS ..
but this one feels like "that one made for apple"
if you are an programmer - you'll know what i mean
ostap posted 6 years ago
and to ou anus ..or was it anse ?
what ever...
If you are ever come acrose free exresssion ...
you should think twice before thinking of removing it...
ostap posted 6 years ago
what ever .. screw you all ..
program still crashes on my table ...

none others do .. but others are more crappy than this proggy..
ostap posted 6 years ago
i'm not interested in pesting anyone...
i'm just reporting a fucking huge bug...

ostap posted 6 years ago
fix it ..
and remove that sort button .. each time i press an column ..
i have to reset the sorting ...

its not handy... if YOU deside ... its more handy if you give an option to the user as it is...(dont be an apple ars ... be an programmer)

I'll refrase ..
multiple sortng option - is great ... implement it fucking diferently than as freaking default when user cklicks the column
stay away from apple ..

Hehe.. Is this probably a bot spamming my forum ? Probably not :)

ostap, if you want to report some access violation then go and paste the callstack here, describe the issue a bit and stay friendly. You can't expect any help after raging against me, or is it apple? I don't know...
ostap posted 6 years ago
It is not a bot ... sorry if i affended you in anyway ...
i'm just getting more and more pissed off by software now days...
ostap posted 6 years ago
if you wanted the stack dump - i would advice you to just execute my sql i've posted before ... you'll get all the info you need
ostap posted 6 years ago
and about the sorting - Yep ... could you please make it optional ...and not that sorting is added each time i click on column ?

query that includes multiple sorting options is not often used ... but is handy ... - the way you made it - it accumulates each time i press the column ...
it is annoying coz - each time i need to resort table - i have to clear the selection.
ostap posted 6 years ago
ow one more thing

single filter for just one column - would be nice too
directy setable from the options balk ...

select * from id = x ? .. or "timestamp=x" ?
it is freaking handy... trust me ...
just one column ...
ostap posted 6 years ago
if you want an algo tip - here is one

- if 1 column selected - sort by 1 column
- if >1 coluns selected - create sorting record (a+b+...)
- if 1 column clicked - remove all sorting records... sort by 1 column

this would be more convinient ..than acumulating clicks...
ostap posted 6 years ago
multiple sorting - should be left to the user choice ...not your program ... thats my point !!!
ostap posted 6 years ago
To make it all square ..
I'll donate you 100 euro ... if you'll make those changes...
No jocking ... coz from all soft i could find - yours is mucho grande ... better than else...

its not a price - its just apreciation for work your already did...i'm still using your client ...even that it crashes...

you know my email ...and i'm standing by the words i just said.
ansgar posted 6 years ago
Ok, man. I cannto reproduce any crash after running your CREATE TABLE and going to the data tab. Nothing. Just an empty table. So I guess you have some old version in use. Callstack here, man.

Sorting: There already is an alternative when clicking on the "Sorting" button on the upper right. Please check it out. There should not be some customization option to make this stuff even more complicated.

The filter proposal sounds exactl like what is already possible in the upper right "multi column filter" edit box, is it? Probably missed that because the "Filter" panel is hidden.

ha ..it crashesh on render ...nice..
ostap posted 6 years ago
check the allocated string lengths ... it could be the cause ..
coz 1 out of 2 times when i press continue (multiple times) - proggy works...

still wonder why thoughsmileif you corrupted your stuck - windows would terminate your prog on first return
ostap posted 6 years ago
But many Borland classes use heap allocate ... so your stack might not be affected...
ostap posted 6 years ago
and i see you use "WaitForSingleObject" ...
I had similar problems when child threads were using globaly allocated strings..(beside the designated data for that thread) ..(dumb of coz ...but nobody is perfect)
ostap posted 6 years ago
and about the sorting again :

yep i've already found that - its cumbersome...
selected collumns disappear from the view ...and any new sorting require to reset it back to default...

what i ment is - just a drop down menu with columns right on the top of the data list ...
and filter by:
something =X,
something != X
somethign > X
something in (not IN) (list)...etc...
... thats most used operation for quick view through large tables....

and clicking on each name - should not autmaticaly add it to the multicolumn sorting ...
ansgar posted 6 years ago
Thanks for the callstack. It tells me - like I already guessed - you have an old build in use. You are seeing bugs I already fixed. Please update via Help > Check for updates.

About sorting again: Did you then see the right click menu items?
- Reset sorting
- Quick filter > ...
Sounds like you are searching for those.
ostap posted 6 years ago
well yea ... new version is mucho better :)
no crash windows and all tables are accesable and editable (previous version did not show the edit tab at all)
but clicking on the column - still adds sorting to the list ...and keeps accumulating...

I've also evaluated the right click menu options ...
they are handy..(just few of them) ...except just one :)

here i go again ...
right click=>Quick Filter=>field_name='..."

is exactly what i ment ...but not that deep into the options ..
its not even on the top ...but thats not the point ...

I will mention Apple again ...i hate the guts of it ...but one and only MySQL client available there - was kinda simple and offered exactly what i got use to in the past 5 years working with it ...
a direct select (drop down list) of the columns and the value for filter...

it is convinient and visible directly to any type of user.
instead of digging into the options menu.

you are creating a mini dialog when i click on the menu option
why not put the same one (or move) just near the messsage "xxx table: xx,xxx rows total, limited to 1,000"...

ostap posted 6 years ago
searching by one value - is the first what user wants to do ..
so it is unlogical to hide that deep into the options...

multiple search is great ... - keep it ...but plz make it optional ...not accumulative as it is now
ostap posted 6 years ago
as i would implement it -
is to use a dialog window to select column as you did ...
or use key stroke + mouse click ...to select columns for sorting...and than if needed adjust direction from the existing dialog...

just think ... if you want to see a record of users...
you click first on date - to see latest ...than you click on update ...to see updated... than you click on few other fields to see differences...
All this still just 1 field sorting ...
Right now - its impossible - coz you collect each click into filter option.

ostap posted 6 years ago
btw - this was ..and still the most confusing option...
coz in default windows - you got just 1 column sorting ...
so all the users use to ...

click click ..wtf ? .. hmmm ok no sorting thus...
just later i've discovered the reset option...and sorting was by id, by date , by name , by field x, by field y... etc...
no wonder i had no change ...
ostap posted 6 years ago
To round it all up for today -
Proggy is good now ... but all the issues ive given to you - are the same issues i'm facing every day at my work ...

UI - is not just add an option to the list and done with it...
Sometime we sit for hours arguing why it should be on the left and not on the righ... or should be green instead of red...
drop down instead of radio/ckeck button list...

As well - new stuff ... its hard to invent now days ...coz users are dumb fucking wanahaves ..nobody likes new stuff unless its as easy as candy sucking ...

What i'm asking you - is not simplifying your program ...
but making your UI more accessable to professionals than to beginers...
ostap posted 6 years ago
ow ...and its true...
programmers are the most laziest ppl in the world ...

ansgar posted 6 years ago
Calm down man. I'm not lazy.
ansgar posted 6 years ago
I'm a bit lost in the myriad of comments here. What I understood is your proposal to make sorting action always per one column when you click a column header, they should not be cumulated. Did I understand right?
ostap posted 6 years ago
i ment us programmers in global ...not just you...:)
ostap posted 6 years ago
and multisort - via dialog ... or keystroke+ click ...or both actually...

damit ... sorry
i've just discovered something i shouldnt ...
you are from Germany ... i just looked at the bottom of your page ...

this explains alot ...
sorry ...i'm withdrowing all my issues...due to the fact that all german software i've ever encountered - was always super crap ... sorry ...no personal feelings..

although as promised - i will transfer your the 100 .. before new year...thanx ...

No need for donations - although they are welcome. I would be happier if we could just get a bit more practical and exact, and a less spammy and shouty.

Does adding a new comment to this 6 year old diatribe explain why it appears at/near the top of forum postings, or is there some setting I can change to avoid such "crap?" Whoever ostap was he/she posted 47 messages in one thread -- I hope English was his/her 2nd language because it's deplorable...

ansgar posted 1 month ago

Sorry, there is only the setting "Notify me on replies", which you can disable, but that's a global option, not per date selection.

No need to apologize but thanks! I just wondered why this post seems "current" when it's not.

Honestly, I've never used a MySQL client I like as much as HeidiSQL. It's simple, intuitive design makes it easy for scatterbrains like me who forget SQL query terms, syntax and other more technical details. I donated only €10.00 so it was a real bargain... I should donate more!

Thanks again, ansgar!
