Folders in sessions and database tree

Finally HeidiSQL is now capable of displaying tables, views, procedures etc. in groups, or let's say folders of the database tree. Also, when you click "Tables" for example, the list on the right only shows tables. You can activate folders by rightclick: "Group objects by type":

Folders in the session manager was another thing I was working in my last 2 holiday weeks. A huge modification of many lines of code, 3 times more than for the tree folders. HeidiSQL sessions are stored in registry, in the key

Now, you cannot only have a session in that root:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\HeidiSQL\Servers\Online #1
but also create folders, sub folders and sub sub folders etc:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\HeidiSQL\Servers\Remote\Live\Online #1

That helps users to organize their settings in some reasonable structure, especially when having many of them. See yourself:

Hi Anse, I liked very much this feature, I think it's seems more organized using folders. And what about that classic number of objects between parentheses on right of each object type/folder? ;-)

Thanks for HeidiSQL, a superb tool.

I am glad you have made this addition, I was needing it for a bit. There are a few minor issues to bring to light, which may or may not have already been noticed, but you cannot drag a server or folder back to the root section.
