The DbVisualizer UI

Previous Next

DbVisualizer has a tab-based user interface that gives you a lot of control over the layout and how to work with your database objects and editors. There are also options to hide certain areas of the user interface to better conform to individual preference and screen real estate use.


This shows a maximized result-set tab in the SQL Commander.
Maximize tabs with a double-click

The top-level tab types, Object View and SQL Commander, can be dragged to desired
positions in the workspace area. There are also actions in the tab right-click menu to
 automatically tile all top-level tabs or collapse them into a single tab group.
Top-level tabs side-by-side

For each database object type being presented in DbVisualizer there are a lot of
information presented in sub-tabs. Users may decide to hide certain tabs, rearranging them
or present some side-by-side with other tabs. The layout can be saved between DbVisualizer
sessions and is automatically loaded at next open of the object type. This example show
a table in Oracle that is maximized with 3 sub-tabs organized side-by-side. In additon
are the top-level toolbar, object view header and the favorites bar not visible to
better use the space in the window.
