Viewing a Result Set

You can view a result set as a grid, as text or as a chart. Which format to use by default can be specified in the Tool Properties dialog, under the Default Display Mode section shown in the SQL Commander > Result Sets category under the General tab.

Here you can also specify other things like if empty result sets should be shown at all, or which tab should be activated after a successful execution in the SQL Commander.

To change the view format for the current result set, use the buttons to the upper right in the grid toolbar.

Below is an example of a Result Set shown in text format.

Viewing as a Grid

When you view the result set as a grid, you have access to the same features as when viewing table data (or, for a document data source, viewing document data).

Viewing as Text

Only in DbVisualizer Pro

This feature is only available in the DbVisualizer Pro edition.

The text format for a result set presents the data in a tabular style. The column widths are calculated based on the length of each value and the length of the column label.

Merge Result Sets

If you want to combine the text view of a number of result sets into one, select Merge Result Sets from the result set tab right-click menu. A dialog lets you select the result sets to merge and also do some configuration:

Dialog for merging result sets

Auto merging

Using the Merge Result Sets drop-down menu in the SQL Commander toolbar, you can enable Auto Merge after Execution. You can also select Merge Result Sets > Configure Merging from the drop-down menu to adjust various merge options.

Viewing as a Graph

Only in DbVisualizer Pro

This feature is only available in the DbVisualizer Pro edition.

To view the result set as a chart, use the rightmost button in the grid toolbar. Please see the Working with Charts page for how you can arrange the chart.
