Query Autocomplete & Snippet Support

We have implemented cross-database autocomplete supporting several database platforms. Autocomplete has three capabilities:

  1. Display any words on the editor screen from above where your current cursor is
  2. Display SQL Syntax like SELECT, WHERE, FROM all the way to database platform-specific functions like CASE, DATEDIFF or CURRENT_DATE()
  3. Display the database, schema, table, column as you are typing


To initiate just the database browser which shows database objects plus snippets hit the Ctrl+Space button otherwise as you type if auto-complete is supported it will automatically popup.


Snippet support

We have pre-wired some special snippets within the editor as well to make writing SQL simpler. The table below details those snippets that are currently available.

Snippet Action
