Locate Object in Object Explorer focused in SQL Editor
Locate object in Object Explorer
located at cursor position directly from SQL Editor.
Keyboard Shortcut: [Ctrl-F2]
An often need is to know more information about object under the cursor
: its columns, parameters (for function or procedure), other properties.
If a database has hundreds of objects, locating an object in the Object Explorer
can take some time. SSMSBoost allows to locate object in seconds!
Just place the cursor on the identifier and
- press Keyboard Shortcut [Ctrl-F2]
- right-click the identifier and select "Locate object" from the context menu
SSMSBoost performs search for valid identifiers at cursor location and allows you to select, which
one you want to locate. If you select part of the identifier - SSMSBoost will perform
no search and will use selected text as object identifier.
Object fill be focused in Object Explorer and it's node will be expanded. So that you can easily
access it's properties and, for example, drag-n-drop parameters
of stored procedure into SQL Editor window.
If you want to change the default Keyboard Shortcut of "Locate object" feature you can
do that using other feature of SSMSBoost - Shortcuts editor (needed only in SSMS
2008, as far as SSMS 2012 and later versions finally have built-in shortcuts editor)
