Hi omari,

It looks interesting, but I don't quite see how it can help anyone. To use it, you need to have some understanding about .sch files and about SQL in general - I'd say that as much as you'd need to write the .sch file yourself. Maybe one thing that might be good about the editor is that it prevents typos and should always generate valid .sch file, but that can be easily checked by trying to compile it.

Is there anything in particular that led you to write this editor? I'm not trying to say it is useless, I'm just curious, because I usually prefer to write everything manually, without specialized editor Wink

After testing, I have few notes to the program itself:
1) It should allow 0-9 and '_' characters in table and column names, it is valid sql and I use them a lot in my schemas Wink
2) You should add a column for default value, that is very common in my schemas too Wink
3) It fails on parsing errors when loading more complex sch files. Aside from perfecting the parser (I understand it is just first version Smile ), you should wrap the load functionality in try/catch block, so the application doesn't crash when user imports malformed text from file or clipboard. If you want to test, you can try with the watchdog scheme, it fails probably because it contains some macros not yet supported by your editor.

Best regards,
Honza

Hi Honza,

thank you for the test and notes, I'll take them into account.

my goal is to enable rapid creation of sch file with or without knowledge of the .sch file synaxis.

cordially

omari.

Hello omari

It seems to be a good idea. Maybe it could be like the .lay files: you can write them in TheIDE with the layout editor or by hand editing the text.


Best regards

Well, maybe it would be a good idea then to add a read-only CodeEditor to the application showing a preview of .sch file. It would naturally lead the user to learn the .sch file syntax, if he wants Smile

Hi Omari,

Nice idea for learning Sql schema syntax. Should be added to the UPP manual online (ask Mirek, Koldo or Honza).

Hi!
I like this idea. Writing .SCH manually can be tedious.

But as I said in another thread it might be more interesting to write a plugin/script for MySql WorkBench, it's a UML modeler.

You can design the database visually and then export to .SCH.

Just an idea.

PS: I'm testing your tool and I like it.

I have started adding DbDesignerFork model import.
I'll post it in a couple of days.

Regars,
