How to drop database

lpecorelli's profile image lpecorelli posted 1 month ago in General Permalink

Hi,

sorry for my bad english, I see that on right click menu on database object have "Drop" item grayed ... how to reactivate?

Is there another way to do it by GUI without sql command?

Thanks in advance Leonardo Pecorelli

You could do it per command: DROP TABLE xyz

But HeidiSQL should have that menu item enabled, unless you clicked the root node, or one of the meta level nodes. Could you post the server version, and the HeidiSQL version? (if not the latest build, you should update to it via Help > Check for updates)

Hi Ansgar,

I mean really when click on the root node, I use Heidisql from meany years and I remember that until recently it was possibile to Drop a database directly from GUI with that menu item. I confirm then the menu in any other context is enabled.

The root node is the connection, not the database:

Probably post a screenshot.

Ok, thanks, that looks indeed odd. Which server (+ version) is it?

Ah, got it. This time it was me, not using the latest build :)

I broke that menu item this morning, for issue #1133. Just applied a fix for that, so the next build should help.
