Query Analyzer output in color?

Query Analyzer output in color?

  • Comments 6

Was wondering if anyone knows about an add-on or some product which will let me add color to the output of SQL Server 2000 Query Analyzer? The reason I could use it is that I was running a test in QA that printed out a lot of PASS and FAIL statements - would be a lot more useful if color coded.

Maybe that is just a feature request for Yukon (too late for feature requests I guess - if it is to ship in 2005!). If you are interested in Yukon, check out this cool flash demo.

  • have a look at sqlparse.dll. Feed in a query and it will spit back a color coded format for RTF.

    Way sexy.
  • Nick - That might be more work than I want to undertake...though it would surely make for an interesting project.

    Hilary - SQLParse.dll sounds interesting - But I couldn't find any more information on it anywhere. Any pointers on how to dig into this in a bit more detail?
  • How about marking the FAIL output in a highlighted manner textually?

    PASSED
    PASSED
    PASSED
    -------->>>>>>>> FAILED <<<<<<<<<---------
    PASSED
    PASSED
  • Scott - That is exactly what I do currently to try and make the failure attention grabbing. Didn't quite figure out getting color with query analyzer though...
