Next Data field edit with Tab key

Mankra's profile image Mankra posted 4 years ago in General Permalink

Hello to the communitiy.

Sorry, for the maybe dump question: I work with HeidiSQL since about 10 years. Now I have it installed at my new PC. Earlier it was able to go to the next data field with the tab key and edit this field. Now at the new installation I have to double click, to edit the next field. I have searched, but found no Option for this.

This is an issue in v11, not sure what I did to break it. However, you can star issue #937

Maybe the same Error again in the new Versions?

I have some time ago updated to version 11.1.0.6116 and here HeidiSQL stays in Edit Mode.

I get a noticable screen update when trying to tab to the next column. Its as if some other process is attempting to update the display of the subesquent table entries. Curiously, you'll see that the 'update' extends beyond the field definition area as I try to tab from a table field in the lower part of the screen.

Hi folks,

I have seen this behaviour after upgrading from 12.0.0.6468 to 12.3.0.6589. The same version Rikai.Design used and he failed also but TTSneko had no issues. Strange. Ansgar mentioned, this is an issue of v11 but as v12.0 worked for me and 12.3 not, there might be a new regression or any side effect caused by ... OS? By the way, I used HeidiSQL on HP Notebook with up-to-date Windows 10 and nVidia Quadro P600. Downgrading to 12.0.0.6468 solved the issue on the HP Notebook.

A quick Test on a Lenovo Notebook with W10 and nVidia Gforce RTX 2060 showed the same problem with 12.1.0.6537. Upgrading to 12.3.0.6589, same problem. Downgrading to 12.0.0.6468 and the problem was solved.

In short words, at least for me it looks like a regression between 12.0.0.6468 and 12.1.0.6537. I did not check any nightly.

Hopefully, this helps to discover the issue.

Thanks for this incredible piece of software, I (not only) should really think about donating.

Same behaviour here in version 12.4.6659

  1. Press F2 to edit
  2. Press Tab to move to the next column
  3. Edit-Mode is canceled

It looks like when the edit field is moved to the next column, another control gets focused and the edit field is closed because of that. The database and table filter fields are repainted as well.

Tested on Windows Server 2022 with Remote Desktop, so no special graphics card involved.

I recognized the same issue after updating to HeidiSQL 12.4.0.6659 Hope, this will get fixed soon, because it means a loss of comfort to me...

I just updated to HeidiSQL 12.5.0.6677 and the issue described above is still present.

Hi,

as of the long history of this issue, I stuck with version 12.0.0.6468 until now, which worked so far for me. In the mean time this version is fairly outdated.

Now I have a new notebook, wich uses a AMD Ryzen 7 5825U with integrated Radeon graphic engine, running Windows 11 23H2. So I decided to install the actual version 12.6.0.6765 and give it a try. But still I see the same problem. The line edit mode is left after each pressing of the tab key. I have to press the enter key again to type in the next value.

In the past it was mentioned that this is a behaviour with nVidia GPU's but as I use AMD Radeon now, this seems to be not true.

Ansgar, please check this issue again. Several people have this problem, it's not only me. There is even a 2nd thread called "tab edit gone?" but this gives no solution either. If I can do anything to help, identifying this issue (special log files, ...), I am happy to assist.

Have a great day!
