My current wish list for Slickedit, my favorite editor for more years than I care to admit:
1.) the ability to customize the fields in the file open toolbar tab (e.g. add datetime of last mod, size etc) and the ability to sort by header fields would be great. I find myself often not using the file open toolbar on the left side of the editor because I can't sort by datetime etc.
2.) A SQL beautifier would be nice, or otherwise a template for hooking in our own command-line beautifier so it would take the current selected text, or the entire buffer, run it through the external formatter exe and replace the selected text or buffer with the beautified sql code.
3.) Another nice-to-have would be an isql.exe or sql.cmd MS Sql Server Management Studio execution capability whereby we could emulate the output buffer that appears on the bottom of the script editor in Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio. The output window can be configured with a hotkey to display query results in grid format or in free text format. The output buffer in Slickedit could be the target for the query execution output.
In MSSSMS, F-5 or the run button executes the entire buffer, or if any text is highlighted in the buffer, executes that text only.
This sort SQL execution functionality has been very popular in Xemacs for decades -- the buffer keeps accumulating output until cleared (which would be an improvement over the Microsoft tool).
Some may ask, why not just use MS SQL Management Studio?, but Slickedit is such a great editor and environment, I don't like having to leave it for any reason:)
