    Package body in read only

    553104
      Hi All,

      I just started using SQL Developer. When I access Package Body it comes up directly in editor where I can make changes.. (I mean it opens directly in read/write mode). Is it possible to access the code for read only? like I can see the code but it should not allow me to change anything. Like in Toad there are two view. first view just to see the code and then if I have to make any changes then I load it in Editor. Thanks for your help.

      Regards
      Dax

          Hi
          Whenever the code gets opened in the right pane there is and icon of <b> pencil </b> just left to finding the text text area. If you click on this icon the window would switch to read only mode.

          Regards

            You can set the preference for the Code Editor.

            Tools -> Preferences -> Code Editor -------There is a check box for 'Start in Read Only mode'
