Better autocomplete

podwieczorek's profile image podwieczorek posted 10 months ago in Feature discussion Permalink

Hello,

would it be possible to implement more friendly autocomplete feature. I'm talking about autocomplete which appears when:

  • I enter database_name. and list of tables appear
  • I enter table_name. and list of columns appear

Right now I have to type name of table / column from the beginning of the name. I can't search inside the name. Better autocomplete would search inside the table / column name as well. It would improve and speed up query writing process.

So when we have following tables:

  • user
  • user_email
  • user_photo

Right now typing photo returns no result. It should return user_photo table.

Thanks!

You can activate the option "Find matches in middle of entered text":

That way HeidiSQL does not limit the suggestions to those which match at the beginning:

Thank you for a response. I didn't know this feature is available (I think it should be turned on by default). I must missed it or it was added in last of couple versions. Thank you so much.
