Description drewjensen.inbox 2007-05-19 00:30:21 UTC
Current situation

In the property sheet for the report there is the ability to select Content Type
of 'SQL Command'. When the user does this they can open a query designer window
by using the pushbutton next to the Content property control, IF the property
Analyze SQL command is set to YES.

When the query designer is opened in this manner the user may switch to SQL view
mode, but the Run SQL Direct feature is disabled.

However, there are queries that a user may need to build that can not have this

Changing the Analyze SQL command to NO disables this push button. The user must
then either enter the SQL statement in the drop down section of the Content
property control or toggle back to the Base window, open a designer in SQL view
mode. Build the select statement, copy it to the clip board and then toggle back
to the Report Designer window and paste it into the Content control.


The pushbutton to open the query designer window should not be disabled when
Analyze SQL is NO. Instead with this is setting the query designer should be
opened in SQL view mode and 'Run SQL direct' pre-selected.

If the user opens the query designer with Analyze SQl set to yes, then switches
to SQL view in the query designer the Run SQL Direct button should not be
disabled. If the user needs to select this to execute the query the Report
Designer should recognize this upon saving the query and change the Analyze SQL
Statement property in the report to NO.

add keywords

for completeness: That's not related to the report designer, the same behavior
can be observed when editing form properties, thus the same RFE applies there.

resetting target. In opposite to what has been announced, the iTeam decided to use 

- "not determined" when the iTeam had a look at the issue, but decided it is no
showstopper and no "should fix" for the first release

- "no target" when the issue has not been looked at by the iTeam

Note: this has been implemented for the property browser in general, not only
for the report designer's property browser.

Also note that with the fix for issue 66624, the SQL command designer is also
available for list and combo boxes when their "List Content Type" property is
set to "SQL". For completeness, this is now also allowed for "SQL [native]",
which maps to "Direct SQL" in the SQL command designer.
