Ability to rename tabs in sql panel and preserve names in project file #1186
Details for the issue
It would be nice to be able to give tabs in the sql panel a descriptive name and preserve these names in the project file.
Useful extra information

This should be included in the next nightly build, too. You can now double click the title of an SQL tab and get a small dialog where you can change the name. The names are included in the project files as well and should be restored when loading a project file. Can you check that as well?
Thanks @pamtbaau. We haven't set up proactively monitoring for build failures yet, so yeah... that generally gets fixed when someone mentions it.
Just added a potential fix, but haven't tested it yet as I don't have easy access to the Windows build VM right at the moment. If I don't get around to testing it before tomorrow, then we'll get to find out by checking if there's new Windows nightlies instead.
Just slapped together a quick VB program that'll notify me if a nightly is missing.
Do they show if you press the Alt key down?
Before I press Alt:
This is probably a Qt thing, not a DB4S thing.
I know its a recent Windows thing that the accelerator underline 'hints' are hidden until the Alt key is pressed down
compared to when I hold down Alt:
For some reason (bug?) Qt isn't 'hiding' them again when Alt is released.
For the avoidance of doubt, regardless of whether the hints are showing, the accelerator still works, ie, pressing Alt+T (for my example) still shows the correct tab, and pressing Alt+R shows the other tab.
A little mindbug on my part... It didn't occur to me that the '&' issue was about keyboard shortcuts and took it for "the & is not showing in the new name" (which it doesn't).
So, new findings:
Yes, I'll add this to the Wiki. As the '&' is used for an accelerator key (not technically a shortcut in the true sense... but who uses proper technical jargon anyway?) then && should be used to 'cancel' it out and display a '&' instead.
So are you OK closing this now?
