Data editor

Overview

The data editor provides a user interface for working with table data. In the data editor, you can sort, filter, add, edit and remove the data as well as perform other, associated tasks.

Value editor

Value editor is a separate editor where you can edit data that is stored in the cell. To open Value editor, in the cell context menu select Open in Value Editor.

Open in Value Editor context menu option

To edit the value in Value editor, do the following:

  • To start a new line, press Enter.

  • To enter the value, press Ctrl+Enter.

  • To restore an initial value and quit the editing mode, press Escape.

  • To enable soft wrap in the editor by clicking the Toggle Soft-Wrap button the Toggle Soft-Wrap button.

If you store one-line JSON in a cell, you can click the Toggle Formatting icon. This action formats one-line XML and JSON strings.

Also, you can preview images in the value editor.

Note that to leverage the performance issues, the default LOB size is limited to 1024 bytes. It means that only 1024 bytes are loaded to the table editor. To increase this size and view larger images, open settings by pressing Ctrl+Alt+S, navigate to Tools | | Data Editor and Viewer, and change the value of the Maximum number of bytes loaded per value option.

Aggregate view

In the Aggregate view, you can select values of multiple cells and get a single summary value. To open Value editor, in the cell context menu select Show Aggregate View.

Open in Value Editor context menu option

Click the gear icon on the toolbar of the Aggregates tab to view, enable, and disable aggregates. Also, you can create your own aggregate scripts. Bundled scripts are located in Scratches and Consoles | Extensions | Database Tools and SQL | data | aggregators. To add your own aggregator, place your script to the aggregators directory.

Aggregate scripts and extractors

Main functions

Most of the available functions are accessed by means of controls on the toolbar, context menu commands for the data cells, and associated keyboard shortcuts.

Next Page Ctrl+Alt+Down,

Last Page

Use navigation icons and corresponding commands for switching between pages that show the table data and change the page size.

A number of rows that you see on the toolbar are referred to as a result set page. If this number is less than the number of rows in the table, only a subset of all the rows is shown at a time. If all the rows are currently shown, navigation icons and the corresponding commands are inactive. You can see the limit between the navigation buttons. You can change it here by clicking and selecting the necessary limit or in settings.

  • First page: jump to the first page of results.

  • Previous page: go to the previous page of results.

  • Next page: go to the next page of results.

  • Last page: jump to the last page of results.

To change the size of a result set page, click the Change page size button and select the size. Alternatively, open settings (Ctrl+Alt+S) and navigate to Tools | Database | Data Editor and Viewer. In the Limit page size to field, type a new size of a result set page. Alternatively, to disable the page size restriction, clear the Limit page size to checkbox.

For more information about comparing tables, see Compare table data.

the View as button

View as

Select the mode for browsing and editing table data.

  • Transpose: viewing mode in which rows and columns are interchanged. You can combine this checkbox with other viewing modes.

    To make this mode a default for tables and views, open settings by pressing Ctrl+Alt+S and navigate to Tools | Database | Data Views and select the Automatically transpose tables. When this option is enabled, query results are not transposed.

  • Table: the default viewing mode of table data. Data in a table is stored in a cell that is an intersection of a vertical column and horizontal row.

  • Tree: viewing mode in which data is displayed in the key-value table with the possibility to expand the key cell if it contains children nodes. Data from the expanded children node is distributed between key and value columns. You might consider using this mode to work with JSON and array data.

  • Text: viewing mode in which data is displayed as a text.

For more information on viewing data, refer to View data.

Show Options Menu

Show Options Menu

The Show Options Menu list includes the following options:

  • Show Geo Viewer: enable a graphic viewer to explore geospatial data in your database.

    For more information about the Geo viewer, refer to Using Geo viewer for geographical data in PostgreSQL.

  • Show Value Editor: open a separate editor where you can edit data that is stored in the cell.

    For more information about the editor, refer to Value editor.

  • Show Aggregate View: open the aggregate view where you can select values of multiple cells and get a single summary value.

    For more information about the view, refer to Aggregate view.

  • Sort via ORDER BY: sort data on a database level. The Sort via ORDER BY option is available only for tables in the data editor but not for table result sets in the Services tool window.

    If the Sort via ORDER BY option is on, data for the whole table is sorted according to the corresponding database system.

    Sort via ORDER BY is on

    Do not turn this option on if you want to keep interactions with the database to a minimum. For example, when the table is large or the database connection is slow. If you want to use sorting on the client side, clear the Sort via ORDER BY checkbox.

    If this option is off, the data is sorted locally and only for the rows that are currently shown.

    Sort via ORDER BY is off

    You can define which sorting method to use as the default for tables. You can select between Sort via ORDER BY or client-side. The client-side sorting does not run any new queries and sorts only the current page.

    To configure the settings, open settings by pressing Ctrl+Alt+S and navigate to Tools | Database | Data Editor and Viewer. In the Data Sorting section, select or clear the Sort via ORDER BY checkbox. When this option is on, data for the whole table is sorted according to the corresponding database system.

    For more information about sorting data, refer to S.

  • Show Filter: show or hide the filter box.

  • Paste Format: select how you want to treat the text from the clipboard on paste.
