Hi,

There does anyone know how to turn of the Predictive Typing feature in SQL Server 2008 and 2008 R2 when typing in a query analyser window

This has to be the worst feature i have ever seen, it now takes longer to type a piece of SQL as i keep having to correct what it assumed i wanted to type.

Thanks in advance for any help

Cheers,

Brunzire

It's called IntelliSense.
Check you SSMS Options.

"Worst feauture" ?w00t

Thanks for the response i found an icon on the toolbar that allows me to turn it off.

Yes it is 'the worst' feature as some of us who use computers for a living have taught themselves to touch type. This combined with a sensible database naming convention means we do not need to be prompted with key words or column names when writing queries

Well, every one is entitled to their opinions, but I have to disagree.
IntelliSense is a great feature and cuts dev time in half over a long period for us who also type alot, and who have also been using computers daily for a long time....and dont want to type out schemaname.verylongtablenamewithunderscores.columname....

see? ;-)

For those of us who are in the habit of using s and i for column names it's a bit of a pain.


Cursors never.
DTS - only when needed and never to control.

Personally I find the SSMS built in intellisense terrible. I spend more time fixing what it thought I meant than I would have spent just writing the query. A certain 3rd party vendor's intellisense however works very well, partially because there are pages of options that let me configure exactly how I want it to behave

I do agree on that certain 3rd party tool being better, I also use and prefer it to MS.
But at the end of the day, IntelliSense is better than NO IntelliSense...for me..

Usually goes something like

select s<space>
<delete the word>
s<space>
<delete the word>
s<space>
<delete the word>
s<right arrow>

The for anything within 15 mins I'll correct it on the first attempt. After a 15 min gap brain gets reset.

Exactly. I can write queries faster without the built-in intellisense. With the aforementioned 3rd party version, I have <space> disabled as a completion character so that unwanted completions don't happen.

I'd like the MS version more if there were any configuration options.

Is there an option for sorting. When writing queries, often we will see tables with extended names being returned initially:-
ie "tbl_customer_reports" is returned before "tbl_customer" is viewable in the list.
