Allow user to set the BLOB text. Preview for the displayed colors and text in Preferences. #1263
Details for the issue
Other browsers for SQLite allow configuring the text to be displayed in BLOB fields. This would the same we do for NULL fields, but applied now to BLOB fields.
Useful extra information
If we want this feature, I've thought in performing this improvement in the Data Browser tab in Preferences dialog, so we get a nice preview of the colors in the fields used for setting the NULL and BLOB texts (text field for Regular would function only as a preview, of course).
If this is welcome, I can contribute the implementation.
I'm opening this issue because:
The text was updated successfully, but these errors were encountered:
For anyone looking over this and wondering what the change is, this is a screenshot of the current tab layout:
@mgrojo's concept is to add an additional column to the "Field colors" section (and call it "Field display" instead), showing what the rendered text would look like if applied, and allowing for the user to choose the displayed text for BLOBs.
Personally, I reckon it's a good idea. That should make selecting a new text font and colour faster & easier for people before committing to it.
…nces A new setting allows the user to set the text for BLOB data in the cell. The existing line-edit for setting the NULL text and the new one for BLOB are updated with the cell background and foreground colors, providing a preview of the desired changes. An additional preview-only box is added for the regular fields. See issue #1263 Settings in Database tab are left-aligned for consistency to other tabs. See comment in #1173.
