feature: view single record as a form? #116
Hey @ansgarbecker ,
it would be incredibly useful to be able to view/edit a single record as a form, since the information density is so much greater than is possible in a single line. it would be a huge UX enhancement, imo and may not be too difficult to implement. eg:
Quite some effort, but I think somehow cool. I recall there were some other users asking for such a thing.
That should probably be a non-modal dialog, staying on top if it loses focus. This way the user can select a different row in the underlying grid. The dialog should then be synced to the focused row in the grid.
That may work not only for the Data tab, but also for any Query tab result - but it may also fail greatly, not sure.
personally, i'm not a fan of a dialog interface. i thought it might work best as an additional pane within any grid view. similar to the query pane that has snippets, history, etc.
the interaction can be literally like the grid. in fact, the whole thing would work great as simply a pivoted grid with 2 columns (by default) or maybe some more:
