Favorites



By Patch ~ June 12th, 2013. Filed under: Delphi, Oracle, Plugins, Tools.

Last couple of weeks I have been working on an update of the Favorites plugin for PL/SQL Developer. After extensive testing by Erik van Roon, Henk Jan van Wijk and Marcel Hoefs I decided to release it. Hope you like it.

When you select the configure option you are presented with a window with all your favorites.

Here you can rearrange the items by moving them Up (1) or Down (2). Add single files (3) directly from the file system. Or add all files in a specified folder (6). You can also add a Separator (4) between favorites. Separators will be created above the next item, regardless of the value of the submenu. And of course you can Remove (5) an item.

Type the name of the submenu in this box (7) and press the button (8) to add it to your dropdown box (9).

Based on the image prefix (10) the dropdown box (11) is filled with your images.
