Current behavior

text box for database and table filtering doesn't remember search history

Expected behavior

  • the textbox remembers past searches and especially regex filters that potentially took some time to come up with
  • restore filter history on application restart

Possible solution

  • turn textbox into a combobox/dropdown that collects recent searches for reuse

If you check out the really great Windows search tool Everything (www.voidtools.com) it has this feature (needs turning on first) which adds a search to the history after you leave the filter control.

Environment

  • HeidiSQL version:
    9.5.0.5253
  • Operating system:
    Win10 1709

Perhaps you did not yet click on the left icon in the boxes?

no way! How long has that been there? o well, then close the issue and maybe someone else finds it.

But the icon never invited me to click it. A chevron down would be more obvious but it could just be me.

I'll add some arrow on the left button images. I guess you're not the only one not having seen this.

Filter boxes have new icons now, including a drop down arrow.
