DbVisualizer is highly configurable. Settings can be defined on the application level or per database connection. All settings are saved between invocations.


The key binding support in DbVisualizer is extensive as it supports
setting key bindings for lots of operations. There are pre-defined key maps
specifically for Windows, Linux/UNIX and macOS users. This is really
important for key bindings such as those used for editing since these key strokes
are different in each OS. In addition there
are key maps for users coming from other database tools such as TOAD and SQL Server's Query Analyzer.
Key Bindings

Control the individual coloring for the syntax highlighting in the SQL editor.

There are many settings used to control the appearance and behavior of
DbVisualizer. Two great feature is the Color & Border for a database
connection. These are used to highlight certain components that use the
database connection.

The grid colors can be defined so that every second row is presented
in an alternate color.

The permission feature simply controls every
action and SQL that are about to be executed. The permission is set per
individual SQL statements executed in the SQL Commander, such as DELETE, DROP,
UPDATE, etc. The response can be any of "Allow", "Ask" or "Deny".
Permissions are also available when editing in the table data editor. Permissions
can be defined for Insert, Update or Delete operations. The response for each
command is any of "Confirm" or "No Confirm". Permissions are grouped based
on the connection modes, "Development", "Test" and "Production".
